As a sewer sometimes I wonder if to buy things or make them. I picked this skirt up for a mere £3, yes £3. And I wonder to myself if it is worth making a skirt like this. The fabric and elastic would cost more and I would have to spend time finding what I wanted and making it and sometimes you can’t always get hold of the fabric you want. And all I have to do is pick it up off the shelf for £3 and take it home, it’s that easy!!
I have made skirts like this before and a fair few others, and sometimes I wonder if I should.
But then I know I will keep sewing because I love it and I can make whatever I like. I love that I can see something that I cannot buy or cannot afford to buy and I can make it myself. Or I can make something totally different and no one else will have it.
Plus the fact I love fabric shopping, love seeing new patterns and ideas as well as reading all the sewing blogs out there!
