Twinkle Sews

I ordered Twinkle Sews from the library and now on the third renewal I have finally made something, the A Plus A-line.  The pattern pieces are on an accompanying disc, you just print off about 50 pieces of paper and stick them together.  The soldier is for the next skirt.

I found a brilliant zip tutorial online at Sew Mama Sew with a good glue stick trick, not scary at all.

I have a gazillion stitches on my machine but only ever use the straight stitch or free so I used a little curly one for the hem binding.

It all came from my stash, woolen fabric from a textile fair a few years ago, lining from one of the many fabric bags given to me by friends, zip from an old skirt lace trim from Copenhagen about four years ago and the binding I made from some shot silk left over from C&G Patchwork and Quilting about nine years ago.

Enthused, I have found my next project in my stack of Burdastyle  magazines, just need to crack the pattern code.  You can also download the A-line pattern for free from the Burda site.
