Description

My Colette Sewing Handbook arrived the other day and I thought I’ll try making my own meringue skirt. The scallop edge is a lot easier than I thought, the only problem I encountered was accidentally cutting off some of the stitchings while grading the hem seams. I’ll try not to be so clumsy next time. The fit was perfect, I didn’t have to alter it in anyway, can definitely se myself sewing a couple more in the near future.
