My sweet friend, Angela, came over yesterday to finish a project we started long, long ago. While Angie hand-sewed the facing down to the ruffles on the peplum belt/waistband, I put in the zipper, sewed on the top band, and hemmed her skirt. We had such a good time just sitting and talking while we sewed and though I don't have a good picture of the finished skirt, it turned out very nicely.
Angie also chose some African fabrics from my stash to coordinate with solid canvas colors for a reversible tote bag, but we didn't have time to finish that. It's next up on the sewing machine!
