Lazy Days Skirt

I finally made one. I have had the pattern printed forever and finally found some material for it. I love it and enjoyed making it. I can even see that my sewing is getting better, ie straighter!

First Attempt at Shirring was my first attempt at shirring. All in all I am quite happy with it. Once I place some straps on it I think it will make a nice summer dress. I have some more material to make another with, but got so excited over this one thought I might post pics of it. Excuse the dribble on the close up!!!

Lounge Pants

I made these pants from a pattern which actually had a ruffle. I wasn't too impressed with the ruffle so decided just to hem them instead. This is my second pair and each time I mucked up the cutting out and had 2 of the same side legs, it took me forever to realise what I was doing wrong. The first time I unpicked the pants twice before I realised!!

Mothers Group Dress

Here is my mothers group dress. Another girl and I wanted to learn how to sew so one of the other mums is teaching us and this is our second project (following a successful cushion cover!). It is too big for DD at the moment (it was taking so long to make the dress I was worried it would be too small for her!).

The Dress

...and here is the dress.

Is that a dress??

I first attempted this dress but it actually fit better as a top so I adjusted it for my next attempt and made it longer for a dress. I did have to take it in after it was made as well, which was quite advanced for me!!!! Please excuse the garbage bags of clothes in the back ground, they were waiting to be put away.

Here is the link for the tutorial. (I have even learnt how to link websites within words!!)
