sewing skirts

This skirt for Tilly was so much fun to sew:


I bought a gorgeous book a little while back, Sewing Clothes Kids Love, and this is their Insa Skirt. I was really inspired by the authors' theories of colour and fabric matching. Nancy and Sabine feel that children need and deserve colour – so true! And essentially that fabrics that do not match "match" when they are sewn together, that the seam connecting the fabrics makes all the difference. I love that.

Tricky to get a photo of the little lady standing still…

 Sweet, hey?

So quick to sew (once you can actually sit down long enough to do more than one seam) and such a sweet shape with the double skirt. 

One more of these I think. Gosh I wish I'd bought more of that gorgeous bird fabric – gotta love Spotlight

Fi, it’s perfect! I’ve enrolled in a one-day “Make friends with your sewing machine” class- v excited. Doesn’t solve the problem of where to set up to sew. Might have to tidy the kitchen table!
