Sewing a simple skirt!

I have mostly been knitting and crocheting but would love to move on now to sewing my own clothes. I can hem and darn and do basic things but am really keen to move up a level.

I have scoured the internet looking for videos and guides that are really for beginners, some say they are but then talk about very specific techniques that I don’t yet know about.

I wanted to share with you this fantastic video I found about creating a simple elastic waisted skirt. The lady on the sewing a simple skirt video is a pro and says she can make one in 12 mins!

Do you know of any other good sites for beginners with lots of enthusiasm?


No longer absent!

Hello Fellow Fidgeters,

I have not touched base for a very long time, things have been very hectic! I am currently planning my wedding (2 weddings) and have taken on a new job so it’s all go – but that’s no excuse for the amount of time I haven’t posted anything.

As I have stopped hating my laptop with it’s slow speed and crashing tenancies I fully intend to be committed to my blog! ┬áSo – I will keep you posted on what I’m making, currently it’s my throw which after 200 squares isn’t quite done and what’s exciting out there!

So, I’m back and please stay tuned for more!!
