More Sewing!

Well, more sewing this weekend. I finished a skirt for my MIL who's a size 24; no photo's as it's a birthday present. I also drafted it from scratch and am reasonably happy with it.
I also made Ottobre 3/2005 #15 out of dark grey drill fabric. Turned out really well, but I don't really like the way they do the waistband so I think I'll do it differently next time.

Ottobre 4-2004 #10 plus 2 nappies

Well, this weekend we had a birthday party to go to, I rang the little girl's Mum and asked if she had any clothing she'd like me to make. A skirt for winter was suggested, so I found #10 in Ottobre 4-2004 and made it up. It was a little short so I added a frill, did some fabric painting using Pebeo Setacolour which worked really well on the stretch woven jacquard I found in my stash.

I also made 2 fitted nappies from BKT with suedecloth lining for my son's nap times. Lovely and soft and very thirsty!
