Two Insa Skirts and More New Shoes
I made these two Insa skirts for the two little girls from my new book that I won on Nancy's blog. I am sure this is an easy pattern but for some reason I made hard work of it! My fault I'm sure! I didn't even embellish them in any way. My fabric choice is a bit muted, but I suppose thats only the case when you compare it to the skirts in the book!
I am sure they will be very useful skirts, especially during the summer.
I ordered some fabric from a lady on Ebay...My first time. It was rather a good experience, which I wasn't expecting. I thought it would be impersonal and awkward. Far from it.... Turns out she recognised my username from Flickr and asked was I the person who sewed for my twins...I was so chuffed! She also sews Ottobre clothes. Anyway, I bought two metre pieces of Boden fabric and a piece of green waterproof fabric for a summer Jacket for Maeve. I am hoping to my the Silverlake Jacket from "Sewing Clothes Kids Love". I finally have the plan straight in my head and I'm ready to trace the pattern. The quality of all three is lovely, something I always worry about when buying online.
Finally, we have another walker....and she got her first real shoes today. Let me just say...the shoe shop staff will not forget our family in a hurry! Tears and gnashing of teeth were the order of the day...the little girls, not me...I managed to keep it together!
Have a lovely weekend..
