No going back now - June Sewing Challenge part 2
This is my bedroom floor on Sunday afternoon - I was busy drafting up a pattern for my Frida skirt. Having to use my noggin to try and work out some simple maths to get the sizes right - finally got there after much head scratching and scribbling on paper. Can you see the small black blob in the top left hand corner of the pic? It looks like a tribble from vintage Star Trek. They were so cute, if not a little troublesome.
Anyway ... I have now cut out the fabric. Usually I would recommend making a practise garment out of an old sheet or unwanted fabric, but as someone pointed out to me recently, June is nearly over and I didn't have enough time for that so it's fully into sewing the main garment. At least it's a simple shape. Tomorrow I will know if this means it's simple to make :)
