This is my first sewing project for 2013. It is a straight knee length skirt in a blue & black houndstooth check (notice how I write as though it’s already finished? What’s that about?). The pattern is McCalls 3830; I read about it on a blog but can’t remember which one – sorry. I can remember that I bought it from sewing world and they had a very speedy turnaround. The fabric is from Caroline’s (The Sewing Box) on High St West. I think it will have a bit of challenge as I’d like the check to line up on the seams. Anyway it’s public now so I have to do it!
