My Creative Space Thursday

Just a bit of a sneak peak at the Skirt I'm making for my sewing class. It's good because I'm learning how to sew properly- losing all the bad habits I've taught myself, and finally finding out exactly what on earth a 'nap' is; and no, it's not a short sleep!


The Skirt is a cotton sateen, Simplicity pattern #2807 and is sitting on beloved dress form that Mr Honi bought me.
In the background you can see a glimpse of my inspiration wall too.

For More Creative Spaces, pop on over to Kootoyoo with a nice cuppa and enjoy!

I've left that clothes sewing thing far behind me... a nap will forever be a short sleep for me.

So glad you're enjoying your class.

Nice skirt - like the colours in the fabric. A good for you learning about nap, now that you know, you could maybe take a nap! Nic

The skirt is looking lovely! Lucky you to have a dress form. I have the perfect studio except for the lack of a dressform. If you were already sewing before your course you do very well with the added knowledge! Great inspiration wall!
