Sewing Sunday

It's cold and wet outside, the perfect day for sewing.
I am using this fantastic printed Japanese cotton from Tessuti and making a pattern I have made before.  I lust love the shape in this Donna Karen skirt.  The pattern is Vogue V1038. The wide one piece waistband is so flattering.  Last time I made this skirt I used quite a heavy denim, this fabric isn't as heavy but I think it will work just as well.

 I find the most tedious part of making a garment is cutting it out.......
 But once that is done this skirt makes up in about an hour or two........

Machine sewing done, now all I have to do is the hand sewing!  Not too bad for a rainy day project.


  1. I can't wait to see the finished skirt. As soon as I can get to the fabric store I am planning to make myself a dress. I can't wait.

    I have finished it! I just haven't photographed it yet. I love it and wear it all the time.
