I've finally made my first item of clothing.
Yup, that's right. There's nothing like the cheesy polyester costumes to motivate you to get out the sewing machine and make a quality Halloween costume. So what did I make? Lots of stuff! A pleated herringbone skirt, (adding a zipper was another milestone), long sleeves for my white blouse, a red bow tie, a vest (for the chimney sweep), and a fluffy white tail for a kitty cat. I cannot claim credit for the beauty of Olive's kitty hat. (My friend Suzi makes them).
I can't say that I love making clothing because I don't feel the same passion for it as I do quilting. Maybe that will come with more experience? Regardless, I am pleased with the fruit of my labors. Now off to Disneyworld for a great party!
