The skirt that WAS going so well!
Well I was doing so well with this skirt. I was zooming along, doing a very neat job when I sewed layers of fabric together that weren't meant to go together :(
Anyway there was a lot of unpicking and restitching, then the bobbin ran out, so more unpicking and more stitching. I finally got finished and realised I had cut the fabric the wrong way as it is quite strethy and the stretch in going vertically, not horizontally. It just doesn't sit right.
I still can't get the measurements right for Ellyse, this is too big, I think each teir is a little wide also. Maybe I should stick to sewing form a pattern???
Sorry for the bad photos , she just wouldn't stay still, and for her messy blanket shelf!
