Another beautiful day here today and the boys went out for a couple of hours this morning to milo cricket, so Juliet and I decided to do another sewing lesson.
After our big day yesterday we opted to skip baths in favour of collapsing into bed after books, so you may notice that Juliet still has remnants of face paint from yesterday's party, and a bit glob of glitter paint in her hair from our outdoor painting.
We started off with one of her favourite skirts - made for her by my sister in law.
So Juliet set about cutting out a strip - this is leftover fabric from a dress I made her when she was about 3. I love this fabric.
Here she is sewing up the side edge.
Next I showed her how to press the hem and casing so that it was easier to sew it properly. This is her first time using an iron.
She sewed the hem and the casing, and then inserted the elastic, with a little bit of help from me.
Here is her skirt. Gorgeous!
And here is the model.
All this in about an hour! Well done my gorgeous girl, I'm so impressed.
