Ready, Set, Sew

I found this vintage Super Simple pattern at the local thrift store for 25 cents.  It is the perfect pattern for my granddaughters skirt she is sewing this week on "Sew Day".  I made the sample skirt below from my stash to make sure the pattern fit.  It did!!
She selected the fabric below at JoAnns for her skirt.  The fabric has a texture and cute design.  I'm not sure how much of the skirt she will actually sew.  I will have the pieces cut and ready for straight seam sewing.

The second granddaughter has chosen to make p.j. bottoms from flannel.  Here is the sample I made from my stash to check for fit.  It also was a perfect fit.
Below is the simple purple dot flannel that she chose at JoAnns.

They are excited for "Sew Day" tomorrow.  I'm hoping they feel the same way when we finish their garments.

How fun for you and your grand gals to sew together. Special time together and learning a special skill. Love the skirt pattern...especially for 25 cents.

Sorry, I haven't been by in awhile. It's been busy at CITexas Gal with writing stories about my Texas Folks and getting ready for the debut of the 1940 US Census. Come on over and see what's up with that...you might want to join in the 1940 US Census Community Project. Especially if you are into your Family Genealogy. Hope to see ya soon....Sue
