I found some t-shirts for a steal at the bargain store last week. I nabbed three of them to make Elaine some more skirts. Today (okay, it’s after midnight. Make that yesterday) I finally pulled out the sewing machine and set to work.
Do you have any idea how long it takes to do a simple task when you’re caring for an almost-two-year-old (who has a very 2 year old attitude), a two-month old, and a sick husband? Well let’s just say this little project, and a little hemming, took me all day! But now it’s done and Elaine is happy!
The black skirt – first one I made. She looked so…grown up going to church on Wednesday. She is carrying the purse that Mrs. Neiner gave her as a newborn – the purse that started the addiction! And inside she has her Bible…where did the time go?
Three t-shirt skirts. I learned never to sew the elastic without the model. I finished the grey skirt while Lainey was napping. I made it the same (or so I thought) as the others, but it needs some adjustments in the waist!
