Chatting with a few friends from my kids school over coffee a while back, we decided we’d sew some skirts for our girls. A month or so later when we’d managed to co-ordinate our diaries and decide what to make, we got started! We decided to make the Milkmaid skirt.

It’s a really nice little design and something that would appeal to all our daughters. We all opted for different fabrics cut out our paper patterns before we met up. Here we are in the flow of sewing. It was interesting to see the different sewing personalities coming out…The wing it approach; The perfectionists; The muttering at my machine approach.

It was a really fun day, we didn’t quite get our skirts finished and all agreed to meet up again before the end of the week so we could see our little project through to the end! Photos of the finished articles to follow!
