New Beginnings

My creative group's challenge for this month is "New Beginnings".  I have decided to use the themes set to make items to wear each month. I only just realised how little dressmaking I do, but how much I really would like to.

I've a hankering for more vintage inspired clothing so wanted to start with something simple but that had new techniques. I chose to do a circle skirt that I cut free hand. I decided on some stretch tartan that had a reasonable weight to it so it should twirl.  I'm trying to improve at stretch fabric sewing. I chose an exposed zip and a bias hem for other "new" elements.

Bedroom combo

Realised I had never shared the quilt style curtains and matching headboard installed. It's a very cosy comfortable room.
