Simplicity Skirt

Okay, so I took pictures in it but for some reason I'm afraid to show my face?
Anywho, I wanted to show off the the pockets. That is my favorite part.
I wish I could have lined up the design in the fabric better but oh well. Not everything can be perfect all the time...
This is Simplicity Pattern 2698. It is a project runway pattern. I just wish I had a smaller waist. I like the look of tucking the shirt in so you can see the cute thick waist band. So on this one I knew no one would see the waist band so I just did an elastic waist which you will see in the previous post.
Thanks for looking! And join in on the fun at Make It, Wear It and Craftastic Monday!

(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.
