I cannot say that I know how to sew. Sewing is a specialty just as much as quilting is a specialty. However, just because I do not know how to sew, it doesn't mean that I will not, on a rare occasion, try to sew something.
This weekend was the Battle of Plattsburgh. I had been asked to participate by offering to teach children to sew. Of course, I felt that I had to dress the part.
So off I went to make myself a skirt and petticoat/undergarment, easy enough ... so I thought! Jennifer was kind enough to make the apron!
Well.....it took many nights of going to bed at 2:00 a.m. to get this, what seemed simple enough, project finished ... It doesn't even have a zipper!!!!!! .... You know it wasn't invented in 1812! ;o)
So I did wear the skit and no it did not fall apart! However, it's too big! Will I take it in? No way nor am I gaining more weight so it fits! lol It will just have to hang loose on the hips! lol
Thanks for stopping by. Now that this project and event has passed, I have more time to concentrate on quilting.... something I know a bit about! ;o)
