I Like to Make Stuff

Simplicity pattern #7229 and I have made a decision: Skirts will be my summer fare this year. Mom says before kindergarten I refused to wear anything but skirts and dresses. I still prefer a skirt to shorts or jeans, and, lucky me -- Simplicity 7229 agrees. It promises a new skirt in just one hour. I made two this weekend, and trust me, they didn't happen in an hour (oh well). But, if you'd like to try your hand at sewing, this pattern is very simple and would be a good starting place. Just email me if you get stuck.

Meanwhile, I'll be wearing one of my 7229's to Silver Dollar City tomorrow . . .


  1. Oooo.... I looked up this pattern and it is CUTE! I may have to try my hand. In recent years I've made curtains, halloween costumes, shams, etc... but I haven't tried my hand at clothes since high school... i may take it up... we'll see!

    I know you posted this a few weeks ago but I am so happy I found it! I have been looking for the perfect summer skirt pattern as I too prefer skirts to shorts and pants. (I refused to wear pants until 3rd grade also). Thanks!
