Recently I picked up a pretty great sewing book called "Sew Everything Workshop" at a second hand bookshop in town. The book came with patterns and I thought it could be a bit of a risk buying a book like this second hand - what if only half the patterns were there? Or if they were there, but had all been cut out in the wrong size? I decided to buy it anyway as it seemed to have a lot of great general sewing information. If the project patterns weren't all there I could deal with it.
It turns out that ALL THE PATTERNS were still with the book and un-cut! I decided to start with a patterns called the "Easy Breezy Wrap Skirt". It's a very simple little wrap skirt, but it does have a really lovely shape.
Then when I finished up I decided it was the most boring skirt I've ever owned and quickly dug out some trim I had (20 cents from the hospice shop in Levin) and sewed it around the bottom of the skirt.
Obviously when you think of folk - you can't help but think of "the almost award-winning fourth-most-popular folk duo in New Zealand."
I hope you have all been having a great week!
