I sew a lot, as you may know. But being primarily a quilter, and having learned everything I know about sewing from the quilting world, I pretty much sew straight lines. Yes, I can do some fancy things with just straight lines, as my shop my indicate. But essentially I rotary cut, piece things as if they were quilt blocks, and use a few other fancy quilt-making techniques (applique being a favorite) where I want to gussy things up.
Sewing garments? That's a whole other world I know nothing about.
So my friend Kate and I have both been wanting to try some simple kids' clothing patterns, and today I tried out my first one. And lo and behold, it wasn't that complicated! I made, in about two hours, this skirt, pictured (badly, taken from my cell phone) on Miss Sofie:
And it was really fun! I'm about to go try another pattern. This might get addictive.
