Since the living room curtains, my sewing machine has been gathering dust. I just haven’t known what to make next. Then at the weekend I bought myself a simple pencil skirt pattern and some metres of fabric in the John Lewis sale. The patterned fabric is going to be turned into a table cloth for my farewell-summer-hello-autumn dinner party whilst the purpl fabric underneath is going to become a fab skirt for the new season….I hope.
Before I embark on this I wondered if there were any useful sewing tips out there, particularly concerning the mysterious world of sewing patterns? All advice gratefully received!
