I had a day off today. It was made of happy fun times. These fun times included staying in bed till 11:00 and sewing my heart out.
I had two firsts with my sewing escapade today. 1) I've never sewn successfully with such drapey fabric. 2) I've never sewn such a drapey item of clothing.
The fabric I used is adorable , but it was an absolute nightmare to cut/sew. Everytime you go to cut/make a marking with chalk, the fabric slides all over the place. I ended up pinning my pattern to the fabric then cutting around it (My tailors chalk was next to useless :( )
Here's a closeup of the fabric:
All in all, I think this way a day off well spent.
