Skirt Making

August 11th 2015

Sew, I’m going bowling on Saturday with The Positive People Of Hill Valley Preservation Society, PPHV. And I need a skirt for the occasion.

Last year, I went to Secret Cinema, Hill Valley and hadthe most spectacular time and met some great people. This has led to a group of people getting together purely from meeting online, sorta online dating, without the dates, well except for the occasional meet up.

I went to Nandos with a few of them a few weeks ago to celebrate a New Job offer for one of the girls. She has just left Uni and has got a job as a Graphic Designer, well done Chickie!!!  Some LOVELY food was had. It has changed so much over recent years. They’ve added a new flavour, Lemon and Herb was always my favourite though.

So, back to my skirt. I bought the fabric some time ago (well, that is what I will tell the boy). I bought it on Saturday from Shepherds Bush. I was quite overwhelmed by the choice in some of the shops but found the PERFECT one, well 2, helped along, making a decision by Connie 🙂

Ill be using the blue one for my skirt and the black one for a dress

I’ll be using the blue one for my skirt and                       the black one for a dress

There are loads of posts on YouTube as to how to make a Circle Skirt so I won’t go into it here as I’m not going to make a video and I’ve already started to draft my pattern. Just waiting for the fabric to dry.

More on that tomorrow!!

Sew, as I was saying. I forgot, yet again, to wash my fabric as Soon as I walked in the door. Well I was hiding it from the boy so it made sense. Anyhow I finished the skirt…after a small hitch, trying to re thread my overlocker, which I had not done before. I have had my GORGEOUS overlocker for 3 months now and this would be the first time that I was using it.  So that was challenging,  running out of bobbin thread:don’t you hate it when that happens and thus messing up my hem. I finally finished with about an hour to spare before I had to leave. I’m silly and didn’t take a picture with it on me so will add a picture tomorrow .

Toodles
