My first wearable sewing project is complete!
I bought the top part of this skirt from Frockabilly, but there was some sort of a miscommunication because when arrived it was WAY too short for my liking and comfort. She was lovely about it though, she was really apologetic and went out of her way to make sure I was happy with the outcome. And the skirt was super cute - the fabric was adorable, she had added a cute bow and it fit perfectly in the waist.
Because I’m taking a sewing course at the moment, I decided to add fabric to the bottom rather then send it back to her to do the same. It took me about 5 hours (I am a true beginner - I had never even turned on a sewing machine before I started the course 6 weeks ago), because it was harder and more involved than I though it would be - measuring, cutting, realising I didn’t have enough fabric, getting more fabric, measuring, cutting, sewing all the fabric together, overlocking, pinning to the skirt, sewing, unpicking, repinning, resewing, unpicking, resewing again, measuring, cutting, overlocking, hemming. Phew, I am glad to be done. I think the skirt I start from scratch next week will be much easier!!
