A Cute Skirt...

I love this skirt! I bought the simplicity pattern the other day and could not wait to try it out...
The pattern was 99 cents. and the skirt has pockets too! I bought the fabric from for $2.95 yd and I used about 1.5yds.  So a skirt for about $4.50  Not too bad when this store in the mall is selling similar skirts to this for $29.
The only problem I had was the band at the top. it calls for a thick band...which would make it super cute....i just don't know how to insert a zipper, I'm sure I can figure it out but I just wanted to get it done fast so I just attached elastic to the top. no one will see the top anyway..I won't wear the shirt tucked in. Maybe later on this week I will have my daughter take my picture in it. It is cuter on.


  1. What number simplicity pattern is it? I'd like to make one myself. When you find a good pattern you stick to it.

  2. Cute! Love the fabric! I wish international shipping weren't so prohibitive for many American retailers have such great deals!

(I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
