I have been working on a long wrap winter skirt for myself over the past week. It's been on my to do list since Autumn, so finishing by mid-July isn't too bad, I reckon. There was enough fabric left over to make a bias cut skirt for Miss 7 with an elastic waist. She wanted a long skirt "like yours". Tomorrow morning at church we'll match!! I've never made 'Mummy and Me' matching clothing before...

The wrap skirt is a pattern from the 70's that belonged to my Mum. I absolutely love it - the last skirt I made with this pattern I LIVE in. It's an A-line, very flattering, and I plan to wear it with long boots to keep my legs warm!

I'm really enjoying sewing clothing for myself again.


  1. Looks great! Is your other version navy blue? I think I've admired it before! And I love the idea of matching outfits - she'd get such a thrill I'm sure ;)

  2. Yes, it is navy - you are very observant! I think my next one will be denim...
