1 Skirt.

I finally finished something, a skirt with a faced waistband and a flared hem. I used a poly, rayon, spandex in a carmel colour. I haven't put that much work into anything for a long time.
I used a Burda pattern 8280
Regarding my Vogue blouse it is nearly finished as well. I will soon post pictures

I just joined a Burda site, they are beta testing some new patterns.

I will try links at a later date but sofar I am not having much luck with the process.

A new start

The start of a new blog has me excited. This one is will be more specific, namely sewing with fabrics, my wardrobe and my doll making.
For this new year, I have decided to join SWAP(Sewing with a Plan) and I find already the choices are easier on what to sew first. I am not offically joining the group of 50 people working on 11 items in 3 months of sewing. I enjoy their encouragement of each other and I have always loved to see what others are creating.
My sewing room is currently under repair due to a flood. I hope to have the room more organized than it was pre flood, and I hope to be able to make some choices on what I really need.
