Description

This was the first project I made with my new sewing machine. Easy and quick to start it off!

Sorry about the bathroom photo!!! :S But couldn’t do it without the mirror.

I added a picture with a simple explanation of how you can draft your own pattern.

    I might make it – it looks easy and cute. Do you interface the waistband?

    Thank you for the comments! I made it using a free pattern that I uploaded some time ago from burda. But I can’t find it here anymore… Anyway it is quite simple… a triangle repeated 8 times. I’ll try to draw a simple explannation of how you can draft you own pattern and I’ll post it with the pictures ;)
