Sewing Grove

Today (well...actually yesturday, now that it is 12:04am) I finally had a moment to sit down and actally work on some of my sewing projects. To help cut costs, I picked up several peices from one of the "free places" we have here in Saratoga Springs. Mostly skirts that are long and rather full at the lower portion. Since I've gained weight I had my eyes open for more circle and A-line style, so that I could use the bottom half of the skirt. I measure the length from the bottom of the skirt up to where I should cut (usually 24). It is a big help because the hem is already finished. I only have to re-create the waistline. And most of the time I use elastic, its easy and fast. :)
