If you sew for it the weather will come

We have had record breaking cold this winter.  Seem has been seeming to take its sweet time showing up.  I have decided that maybe just maybe if I started sewing for spring I could help encourage it along.  I love circle skirts and have made several from knit fabrics.  This time I made one with a woven fabric from my stash.  I couldn't quite face hemming the skirt so I attached some bias tape rather than hem the skirt.  I'm glad I did.  I think the contrast at the bottom of the skirt is fun.  We have snow today clearly I need to do some more spring sewing!


  1. Contrast bias tape is a great idea! I usually just use rolled hem foot, but I too prefer knit so that I could skip hemming ;)

    1. Yes, I usually make circle skirts from knits so I can skip hemming. I should try a rolled hem on my machine. Thanks for the suggestion!
