Baptism

Yes! She beamed when she saw it. That's why we do this, right? Noeks showed her new fabrics in her newsletter and at once this one was ordered. Funny that right now I notice the similarity with my blog banner :). The elastic was bought in Paris - again at La Droguerie - but is as well online available here. On Sunday outside plans were skipped because the weather wasn't like forecasted. So room to sew. Not finished in an hour, like my admired Belgian colleagues, but some more. I liked the seams to be invisible (you might see one in the left picture?) and the pattern had to be taken account of.


Minadotter helped. Look at her number of skirts! And all beauties in my opinion, especially these. My elastic waistband was 5 cm wide instead of 3 cm and I decided to finish the waist a bit different. The pattern of the fabric appeared to be useful as a ruler. Altogether a sewing project to be recommended!
And now over to the more serious part of this post.

Dear L, you baptized it in a proper way!
