is for Sewing.
Lately I have been sewing a lot. I wish I was better at it. My mom can sew anything - from prom dresses to slipcovers! I guess that is why I was slow to pick it up - she could always do a better job! But I have persevered! I have always been impatient with following patterns - and cutting out patterns. As a result, I tend to just guess how pieces should fit together. I have been smocking everything lately. Elastic thread is the best! Rach bought this Orla Kiely tablecloth from Target and asked me to make her a smocked shirt and skirt.Love the pears!
Here is the skirt. I added a chocolate brown trim to the top and bottom. Hi Scout!The smocked shirt - with grosgrain straps!
