So we're off to a bit of a slow start with the sewalong...
I've been a little preoccupied I must confess - I have big plans for the coming weekend...
In my defence, my plans do include making a few A-line skirts to test out the pattern and make sure I know what I am doing so we can sewalong as successfully as possible.
So please bear with me and let's make an official start a week from now - Wednesday 25th of May.
In the meantime - here's your homework!
- Choose what style of skirt you'd like to make. I am going with a classic A-line as this suits my figure (curvy!) and is practical and comfortable for my lifestyle.
- If you have the Sew What Skirts book - familiarise yourself with how to go about making up your pattern by reading pages 16-19.
- If you are using a commercial pattern measure yourself and draft/trace off the pattern in the appropriate size.
- If you are planning to use Prints Charming fabric scrap pack in your skirt - sit down and have a go at adding some embroidery to some of the pieces because I guarantee if you say you'll do it after you have finished the skirt, you won't!
And while you are here - why not grab a sew-along button as made by the very clever Gilly, just to jazz up your blog a bit. Thanks Gill.
See you soon.
PS - everyone is welcome for this sewalong - whether you were at SIT or not and you don't have to use Prints Charming fabric - it's about having a go at making something for yourself and joining in with this community.
