The Bee’s friend is celebrating her 14th birthday, and we wanted to give her something homemade.
So I made her a very simple, modest elastic skirt. I let The Bee choose the fabric, and I set to it.
I did French Seams, and ironed it down on every step.
There is something so satisfying about making a garment that looks as good on the inside as it does on the outside. It was the perfect activity for this tired Mama. Serenity now!
It is empowering to a do a simple project and do it well. Plus, we get to give it to a special friend.
What simple projects do you take on to recalibrate your sewing self?
