This little skirt is destined for a little girl with two older brothers who is making do with hand-me-downs from the boys. I’m all about hand-me-downs… but every little girl needs something at least vaguely girly. (Even though most of the time I hate girlie stuff. Shhhh)
So I made this skirt in record time. Hopefully the colour will fit in with her existing wardrobe and girlie it up a bit.
It also smells a bit funky as I rescued the fabric from my Gran’s stash and I’m pretty sure it had been sitting in her wardrobe for quuuuuuuite a few years. I was too lazy to wash it first but it’ll be good as new soon.
While I was making the skirt, Hannah snuck out from her bedroom after hearing the noise of the sewing machine. She came in very quietly and said “Are you making me a beautiful dress for me to wear when I wake up in the morning?” And how could I say no to that? So I made her a dress too. Unfortunately I forgot to factor in room for getting the damn thing on so I had to make some minor alterations.
We’ll try again for tomorrow morning.
And here is my fabulous new microfibre glasses cleaning cloth. Isn’t it funky? I was sick to death of having dirty glasses and no way of cleaning them if I happened to be wearing anything other than cotton. Over the years I have sussed out which fibres are good at cleaning and which are only good for smearing. During winter most of my clothes are smear-worthy so my cleaning cloth was a worthwhile investment. Or rip off. Whichever. It has pretty spots so I don’t care!
