There was a time, long long ago when I only did garment sewing. While I wouldn’t have a pattern, the skirt looked fairly simple, so I was willing to give it a try.
I told her what to look for in fabric, how much fabric to buy, what size zipper, thread etc. She knew I would have my sewing machine with me. Whenever we camp I plan to quilt even though part of this trip included her 3 older boys camping with us.
The first skirt was a success, so much so, she asked if I could make her another one.
There is a quilt shop in her area that I really wanted to visit so when she asked me if I would make a skirt for one of her friends as a gift, I suggested we look at fabric at the quilt shop.
I loved having her with me. Her creative outlet is homeschooling and cake decorating, so fabric shopping is not something she enjoys, but I couldn’t have been happier. She has a wonderful eye for color, and if she lived closer, I would take her fabric shopping with me all the time.
That fabric she chose for the skirt is the first picture posted. Her friend enjoys bling, so beads were purchased as well.
I have been told the friend loves her skirt and it fits perfectly, though I am still waiting for a picture of her modeling it.
Next, a surprise element in how the flower was made in the first skirt.
Enjoy the Journey, Jackie
