I don't do a lot of dress making any more, however my friend Julie asked me if I would make a simple skirt for her daughter Amy. They had trawled the shops to find one like her older sister has, but couldn't find any. So we made a trip down to the fabric shop, Amy chose the material and we selected the widest elastic for the waist.
It didn't take long to make. A couple of hours maybe!
Amy was very pleased with her skirt and wore it to school the next day!
