Yay! My sewing machine is finally hooked up and working again after the move. I was beginning to miss it badly. My daughter picked out this fabric for a skirt for her birthday, which was awhile back, and now finally it’s finished. It’s a bit bigger than I intended. I wanted it to be a little big so she could keep wearing it a year or more, but this is a little more than that. Oh well. She loves it, and it was very simple to make. I just did a gathered rectangle with an elastic waist. I cheated on the hem and just did a regular seam, but I actually did finish the raw edges on the inside (I hope my mother and mother-in-law will be impressed with this attention to detail).
