Back in the Sewing Saddle

Posted on

Last week I made a vendor apron for someone (and got to send out my very first PayPal invoice!) and I liked it so much I made another one yesterday. You can see them on The Cornish Hen here and here. A trip to Joann’s last week has me fired up to spend every spare minute I can working on my various sewing projects. I’ve been meaning to make Tabby a quick and easy skirt out of some soft and polka dotted pink corduroy (that I bought literally a year and a half ago.)
It seemed too simple to just hem the fabric, sew a side seam, and put in an elastic waist, so I asked her what sort of embellishment she wanted. She requested bows. Hmm….I’ve never put bows on sewn things before. I fiddled with ribbon, sewed it together, and then sewed six pink bows along the bottom.

I like the way they look, and so does she.

The skirt has some nice bounce to it, as demonstrated during this lovely twirl.

But I’m not so sure she has a future in modeling because when I said, “do you want to do any special poses to show your skirt?” this is what she gave me:

  1. HAHAHAHAHA! That’s some fierce, edgy, very editorial modeling she’s got going on there! (The skirt is adorable, by the way.)

  2. LOL! I love it! The bows are also a really cute embellishment.

  3. the bows really look nice, also loved your vendor aprons MOM
