Simple Skirt Finished! and Giveaway Winner Announced!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the book giveaway. The winner of Purses, Bags, & More book is AndreaK who said, "Happy Birthday and I hope you are able to get some sewing in today. Thanks for the giveaway-purses are so fun!" Andrea, I do not see your email address on your site, so please email your mailing address to me. (sewchicblog at gmail dot com)

Thank you for all the birthday wishes. I had a wonderful birthday, and I even found time in my sewing room for a few hours. I finished a skirt for myself. The fabric came from Jessica as did the ready-to-wear brown top that matches perfectly. The pattern is McCall's 3830: a simple but classic skirt with front and back darts, faced waistband, and zipper closure.

Birthday Giveaway

Today is my birthday, and to celebrate I am giving away a copy of the book mentioned in my previous post. If you're interested in Purses, Bags, & More, leave a comment here to be entered in the giveaway. The drawing will take place in one week on April 9th; the winner will be chosen randomly.

Today I plan to spend some time in my sewing room. It's been too long since I've sewn, and I do miss it. The busy-ness of life has a way of pushing out the things I enjoy most, like sewing. I'll let you know if I accomplish anything today. :)

Happy sewing,
