The only problem with having a commitment to a weekly series is that the weeks fly by incredibly quickly. This week has not been completely devoid of progress as I have cut out the mint green linen skirt.
Belle was here today and was most impressed with the skirt I had completed. I showed her the pattern drafting system and some of the pattern choices. She commented that she wanted some long-sleeved shirts for work but that she finds that the ready-made ones are not long enough to stay tucked in. We delved into the stash and found a piece of fabric which would be suitable and she has chosen a pattern so that has been added to the list.
Meanwhile, I had a couple of bits of mending to do so I completed those jobs and can now get back to the skirt. I darned a sock for The Duke. There is nothing fancy about my ‘darning’. I use a zigzag stitch on the sewing machine which is not particularly pretty but is effective.
