What to do on a rainy morning without kids?

Posted on: February 17, 2010

Sew of course!

It’s cold and wet here this morning, so after I dropped the kids off at kindy & school I came home, turned up the radio, and got sewing! I’ve been working on a boys shorts pattern, and I think I’ve got a good fit/style now. I’m still thinking I’ll add a cargo pocket to one leg, boys need pockets you know! (excuse the less than average photos, I’ll add modelled photos when the kids are home!)

Then I made this super easy skirt for pinkfish. The fabric is from retromummy and is so sweet! The ballerinas run down both selvedges, so I just cut it through the middle, sewed up the side seams and added an elastic waist. Told you it was easy! Just so you know, pinkfish wears a size 7, and this skirt only used 1/2 metre of fabric (and it’s long skirt on her).

Great projects for a rainy day – I love that skirt fabric – I was seriously tempted by it I have to say, but resisted!

oh so cute! love the skirt and I kept a secret stash of that fabric for myself…..too nice to sell out in the store!

loved spending the weekend with you in melbourne and hope you’ll be trecking down to sydney next year!

hope you also had a great birthday and arrived home safely
