put your money where your mouth is

Started sewing the Kasia skirt as promised. I had already downloaded and cut out the pattern, and all the pieces. I am not using retro material (shame!) but something I got when I first bought the sewing machine a couple of years ago in a mad fit of keenness.

My husband only had one comment: it smells of charity shops.... I think a trip to the dry cleaners is needed ;0)
