Together Again.............Me and Steve.........
It's been a long time since Steve (Steve is my sewing machine) and I have spent any time together. Night before last I started thinking of something I wanted to make, so yesterday morning Steve came outta the closet and we began!
I'm making a skirt out of a pair of old sweat pants! The first thing I had to do was cut the inner leg seams all the way round. (I'm sure you'll notice the stain on the leg, I'm really hard on clothes, big shocker. This will be a hausfrau skirt, just for here at home!)
Then I had to make a pattern for the insert pieces, which I did out of newspaper. I cut 10 total pieces from this pattern.
Then Steve and I sewed the panels together, 5 for each piece for a total of two pieces, one for the front inset and one for the back.
Then I sewed the panel inset in and shwaallaa, I've got a really comfy cute skirt! I'm thinking I should have made it out of three panels instead of 5 so that it lay a little smoother, but I like it lots anyway. It really looks better than it does in the picture. It's a really comfy house-skirt!
We got around 4 inches of snow yesterday. It was a good day for being snugged in the house and working on projects!
