I have made steady progress this week with my sewing.
I cut out and have started sewing my next skirt.
The pockets, side seams, yoke and facing are stitched. I had hoped to get more done today but Miss O and Izz came to stay. It is pretty well a full-time job to keep them fed and entertained so sewing took a back seat.
The green skirt now has a zip.
The photograph does not really tell the full story. It is lightweight with a variable texture and is 100% cotton. I paid $35/metre which seems a lot but for $52 I will have a gorgeous quality blouse to wear with the green skirt. This will be my ‘good’ outfit if we go out in the evening when we are in Singapore. I have not made a final decision on the exact style of the blouse yet.
My other achievement was to draft the pattern for a long-sleeve shirt for my daughter. I hope the cut it out next week.
