You may have noticed the tiny little Nuffnang symbol at the top of my page. It's been there for some time now - I signed up to get ads through Nuffnang ages ago to get a little extra money, but Sew, Cook, Laugh has never been chosen for advertising before. I've just received notification that Campbells Real Stock will be advertised on my blog! I'm really pleased both that it's a product I actually use, and that the website looks really good. If you click on the link now at the top of the page, they have a whole collection of recipes to browse!
The biggest hazard of wearing skirts all the time is the Winter cold. I am luck enough to have quite the Stash, and was able to use some fabrics from it to make myself some lovely cosy skirts.
This one was made with the same pattern as the bridesmaids skirts, believe it or not, with corduroy a friend of the family gave me. The fabric was not quite wide enough, so I had to divide the front panel into 3 pieces (well 2 would have been okay, but I didn't want a centre front seam)
This one was also made with fabric I was given, from a pattern I've been wanting to make for a long time. I didn't have quite enough, so I made it shorter than the design, but I like it this length.
This was made from the same pattern as above, but full length. The fabric was left over from a skirt Mum made for herself, but never wore.
