Clothes Sewing

I had a completely crap sewing day yesterday. more unpicking than sewing and nothing great to show at the end of it. So today I sewed things I knew would end well. Another corduroy skirt this time with a panel of Ink and Spindle fabric off centre on the front.
A long sleeve version of Simplicity 3835. I love this fabric. I think I found it at Spotlight on sale in the quilting section, but it is not quilting fabric. More like a voile.
And now some giraffes need stuffing while I watch the girls do 'the bestest dance moves ever'. These should be the last of the softies for Stitches and Craft. Then I should probably start organising everything, clean up the craft room, maybe even clean some of the house.

It's good I think to be so absorbed in what you love doing... I too forget to clean when I'm painting. :) Lovely clothes, nice fabric and designs!

Love the skirt. I am also sewing for myself at the moment - just some a-line skirts. I had forgotten that I could actually sew things for me not only for small people. But I also had a crapola sewing day yesterday - I tried to sew with some stretch fabric and it looked like the dog vomitted up something...

Hi Kate, I'm enamored with that skirt! I love courdoroy and the little detail you've added is fabulous! I'm glad your sewing went better today!

Looks good! So nice to sew clothes. They are just so much more individual and pretty! Love your fabric choices.
