Today Bec has started her denim skirt. I've shown her the do's and don'ts with cutting out, and that's it for now as I don't want to overload her (and make it confusing and boring!) She wants to make this skirt all herself, so we chose a rather easy pattern that I already had, and used some denim that was in my stash. We will continue tomorrow with the 'fun stuff'.

She will be sewing view E for the yoke, but have the bottom section of the skirt view F, which is slightly more flared.
It was nice to watch her do her thing. I recall sewing my very first halter neck dress at the age of 10, and was pretty well 'hooked' from then. It was such a lovely fabric, Mum was a demonstrator for a sewing machine company, and took me to a fabric store around the corner from her shop. I remember sewing the dress where she worked....with one onlooker saying to his wife "If she can sew, so can you!" Mum sold a machine that day.

We are off to Busselton next week, so hopefully she can finish this in time to wear it on our holiday.
