I bought a sewing machine when we were in Malawi a few weeks ago. I’m really not great at sewing – if we’re talking about basic, straight line across a curtain to stop the hidden tabs falling off projects – I’m okay-ish. But I don’t really have much experience or know how.
I decided, being the slightly crazy, prone to overestimate my capabilities kind of person I am, that my first ever, official, from scratch sewing project would be a “patchwork” skirt!
I keep buying skirts from the market that have nice material but just never fit properly or they’re indecently short (i.e. – mid-calf length!). So I cut them all up, sewed them all back together and ended up with this…
Not bad huh!
