Here goes my first project

Well, since I  have not sewn in awhile....I believe the last thing I made was a poodle skirt when my oldest daughter was in grade school.  So I am going to start easy with a simple skirt, which requires no zipper or buttons.  Gotta start with training wheels or in this case elastic waist band...


 stay tuned......

  1. Just look at you!!! - background color, header, you are acting just like a pro-blogger! You won't believe it, but I'm currently working on the same skirt project. I made this pencil skirt several times last fall/winter, so it wasn't hard to reach for the pattern again. Can't wait to see yours made up!

    1. Ms. Faye..you are to funny...a pro, still have a long ways to go. Right now its trial and error. I think I am going to like this pattern too, and may have to buy another one when they go on .99, to have a back up. I can't wait to see what you design. I am going to make the flowing one (I know probably not right terminolgy). I am actually desigining this for a top I purchased about 2 years ago, and have nothing to pair it with. So I was thinking a bold print flowy skirt. So we shall see..
