DIY Simple Skirt Alteration

07:00

Everything has been on hold for the last few weeks, life is too busy and I have a horrible condition that means I am unable to say no to anything. ever. it is not always a good thing...

My craft room looks more like a dumping ground as I have stacks of pre-washed fabrics ready for projects which I don't have time to do. But,  have managed to register as a small business and revamp my web site in the hope that, with a little (lot) of time and effort, I can start making some money. It is that or a normal job, I know which I would prefer (especially since I have no idea what I want to do when I grow up, I really should decide I am 34 in 2 weeks...)!

I have managed to squeeze in a tiny bit of sewing. I sewed a hem!!


I got this pure wool tweed skirt at a flea market last year (£3)  and it has been sitting patiently waiting for me to shorten it.


Well, it's time came and, using a skirt I altered last year, I cut it to length, pressed it, then hand sewed the hem. I used to hate hand sewing hems but I actually loved doing this hem and it looks so much better than a machined one.


The skirt looks a longer on than I thought I might shorten it a wee bit more!

Off to schedule my week in my google calendar, that way we might have proper meals this week...!
