Kota Kinabalu, M...
This is another basic sewing project that I managed to finish in 6-7 hours. This skirt is actually my mum’s and she asked that I help her sew it. We didn’t use a pattern for this one, just based it on one of the skirts my mum has. I had to hand-stitch the top part inner flap near the zipper because if I’d machine stitch it the stitches would’ve shown on the right side. But my mum is impressed and very happy with the end result. Yay!
