Following the party dress and blouse, I took a month-long sewing hiatus. Instead of revisiting my trustworthy patterns (Sewaholic’s Alma and Renfrew or Colette’s Laurel), Mom thought I should try out another Simplicity Amazing Fit, such as the 1652. That’s right, the one I talked about last time in Skirting the Issue with Gathers.
Couple days after stashing the dress into the garment bag, Mom texted me this…
'Bought the skirt pattern, will let you choose the cloth'
Guess she knew how frustrated I was with the last UFO and went to find something that works. So when I got home, she showed me her pattern haul…Sewaholic’s Hollyburn Skirt. Thanks Mom!! I couldn’t wait to start on this pattern, but dinner comes first.
