|Scottie Dogs! How could I resist?|
This is what the fabric became this weekend:
|I was excited to find this plaid on grain and matchable at|
These are simple skirts with elastic waists - no frills, no pockets. I just drafted up a skirt pattern in a jif. The only difference between them is the red skirt has a smaller hem and is slightly shorter for the shorter of the girls. I like the beefier hem better. Hubby was kind enough to lend me his thigh to adjust the elastic for the waists. (His thigh measured the same as the girls' waists, oddly enough.)
The plaid fabric was originally intended for pants for the boy, but I had second thoughts and cut out a plain blue corduroy instead. Those are in the 'soon to be sewn' pile.
The kidlet crew lives in another state, and we don't get to see them often enough. It was great having them here for Thanksgiving (and they brought their parents, too)!
I have done a crapload of mending, made ever so much more enjoyable by my new sewing machine, the Babylock Crescendo. I love it!
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving (or just a great weekend if you aren't in the US!) with friends or family, and of course got some sewing in!
