Odds and ends

I was away for 5 days and then had visitors for 3, so to get me back into the swing of sewing I did the following:

1. Hemmed a skirt for a neighbour
2. Hemmed some trousers for a friend
3. Mended my vogue skirt - lesson learn - use straight stitch on the lapping seams not fancy stitches!
4. Finished the staging bags for school
5. Finished a UFO - hat and scarf ... will be given as a present.
6. Made amendments to pattern for dress, after fitting the toile.




Now I can start on the shirt for J - which is all cut out and ready to sew. Then I shall cut out the dress to make in a fabric that I am not keen on just to see if I like what the finished dress looks like... without wasting nice fabric!!
