So what we see here is by first attempt at sewing a garment in dome years. Mr blue-eyes set me a challenge to actually make something from the material in my stash. As a born hoarder I have managed to acummulate quite the fabric stash through hand- me downs, squirreling and fossicking through chuck-out piles from prop cupboards on magazines shoots I have scored an interesting assortment of material.
So one afternoon after a trip to wooleys wheels we ended up at ariel bookshop and I finally saw SewU.
With all the basic handholding included it was what i needed to actually get the scissors out and get cutting.
I did need to alter the pattern for the basic skirt a little because well my hips didnt quite fit into the sizes included but that wasnt as scary as i thought.
A trip to Tapestry Craft in the around the corner from work took care of the notions and i found the perfect coloured bias binding and my first zipper.
I nearly did it all by myself but a machine malfunction meant i needed mr blue-eyes to recalibrate the machine before we could finish the waist band with the bias binding.
I might wear it to my next brown owls meeting
