I must of had a subconcious Thursday (sewing lesson night) pull though because yesterday afternoon, I bought this fabric and knocked up something with little miss. Nothing vintage, just a self drafted skirt in a Retro pattern! We sewed it together - fun challenge!
It only took an hour or so from measuring to wearing - most of that threading the elastic and breaking the bodkin in an all to narrow channel! Little miss was rather impressed I'm pleased to say, but did turn round at the end and ask....'but mummy why did YOUR SKIRT take so long to sew?'
Today she wore it when we headed back to her new found hobby of skateboarding!
Of course her second favourite pastime is modelling!!
Son swapped between bike and board all day. They're still beginners but they've got alot more confidence in the past few days!!
