These dark, slightly out of focus desk shots just keep on coming, don’t they?
Remember that simple “getting my hand back in” skirt pattern from last week? Well it seems that it was not quite so simple after all. I decided I did not want darts in the front as I prefer a flat fronted skirt. I thought if I just folded the dart in the paper pattern piece, before cutting out the fabric, that would get rid of them. Of course, it doesn’t, but you knew that, didn’t you?
After an hour or so of fiddling about, I solved the problem and could get down to the cutting. I thought I’d have a go with the rotary cutter. I always think the fabric puckers up underneath when I pin patterns. In the absence of pattern weights, I grabbed a few tins from the cupboard and set to. It wasn’t without a few holding my breath moments, but I got there in the end. Much quicker than pinning. Will definitely be doing this again. All cut out and ready to sew, when I get a minute.
I’m linking up with Julia today. Head on over to see what everyone else has been making this week.
