A sewing lesson

Allie has been wanting more skirts, but when we have gone shopping, we are more than a little disturbed by the length (or lack there of) on the ones we find. So today, Allie and I spent several hours sewing. She is a beginner, and I'm not far above that ;O) so we chose a very simple pattern. She was a wonderful student and completed three adorable, modest skirts to add to her wardrobe. I'm sure she will post more at her blog.


  1. Well done Heather and Allie. I think that it's wonderful that your are learning to sew your own clothes. I'm sure you both felt really proud. Soon you'll be whipping them up in a couple of hours or less. Im' inspired - I have a couple of quilting projects I must finish. Well done Allie.

  2. Great job! I've been finding great deals on fabric at one of the local Wal-Marts. We've been making lots of skirts for the exact same reason.

  3. Ahhh learning to sew. So much fun!

  4. The joy of making things by hand. There is nothing like it :)

    Well done! I am sure as you progress in your skill, you will be making jackets and coats...
