A Seamstress

29 Jun

My 11 year old wanted to make a simple skirt to wear when we attend the theatre tomorrow.  We found a pattern (Simplicity 1816) and 1 1/2 yards of a pretty batik.  I showed her how to pin and cut out the 3 pieces.  She pinned with me but I cut it out.  Then I read the instructions and she sewed.  I un-sewed and fixed some folds.  Two hours later, we have not only a beautiful skirt, but a matching headband.

She is thrilled with it!  I need to make the waistband smaller but it’s ready to wear.  She wants to make another one!  🙂
