Here is the fabric with the skirt I copied from beside it...
I made the area between the pleats in the middle a bit bigger as that is how it is on the red skirt. I just pinned them in place then top stitched them down.
I cut the waistband so it just sits on the hips and do you know what, I did not pattern match the waistband. Those people on the sewing bee would not like that would they? However I'm wearing it and I'm not bothered, I would match a pattern on the seams as best I could or in obvious places like a seam down the front or back, but honestly you could drive yourself crazy with it.
I have fabric left for bag making, I haven't made a bag for ages.
I do have a flower girl dress to make for someone so that will keep me busy just waiting for her to get the fabric.
The other night I made the mushroom casserole from Jack Monroe's book and everyone loved it, except younger son who hates mushrooms, he had an alternative. Pancakes were had yesterday, they seem to be the most successful GF recipe so far. I had a go at samosas the other day, oh no what a disaster, the pastry was hard. What did I do wrong?
