Well, I have spent all day sewing and have finally produced this little pencil skirt. What do you think? I didn't use a pattern, just made it up as I went with a lot of help from Madeline.
I was in the process of putting the zip in the back when my machine all of a sudden decided to keep catching the fabric and knot all the cotton up. I was a little distressed and promptly turned to the yellow pages to find someone who could help me. The lovely ladies at Knitting World turned out to be my saviours and all I needed to do was change the needle. Who knew all that could be caused by a blunt needle? Here I was thinking I'd need to take my machine in and not be able to use it for weeks and then get a huge bill at the end!
I still have a lot of fabric which will be put to good use at a later date - right now i'm going to start my next little project, a 1940's inspired halter neck with some of the fabric I thrifted on the weekend :)
