All’s Quiet…

I’ve been silent for a month but I haven’t been idle. Our local sewing group is officially happening and our first real meeting was last weekend. I had a great time with everyone and I definitely want to thank Joann’s Fabrics for providing a great space for us to meet and work together!

The staff at Joann’s was so helpful and went out of their way to help us set up and use the space. They are excited to host our group and told me that they look forward to seeing us again.

I brought a project to work on with the group but really spent most of my time helping my friends find a starter pattern to start learning with. So I ended up finishing the project at home. Not a big deal, I really didn’t know what to expect at the meeting, so it was a no-brainer to adjust and go with the flow.

Simplicity “learn to sew” pattern 8133, wrap around skirt and basic T.

I had already cut the skirt out and applied the interfacing to the waist band pieces. So really all that was left was construction. The T-shirt was made from a bit of scrap in my stash that I had left over from an old project. I just used an old t-shirt that I liked and made my own pattern adding a deeper scoop for the neck and side slits to elevate the look a bit. Now I have a complete outfit for Summer!

The finished project

I can’t wait for the weather to warm up enough for me to wear this!
