Its nearly time for school …..

….. and Chloe’s not too thrilled about the prospect.  To try and soften the blow I’ve offered to make her school skirts this year.  The skirts we usually buy are never “right” – usually too long or scratchy material etc etc. 

We’ve agreed on a pattern (McCall’s M5696 – View A) which I’ve made for her before (pic pending), it fits and she likes. McCall's M5696

We nipped into town this morning and picked up 1.5m of black polyester from Lee Mill which should be enough for two skirts.  They’re really easy to make and can probably finish one in an afternoon.  I may start one this afternoon or we may go to the Marquis for our tea instead (the boys are going to watch football so perhaps a girly afternoon is in order).  I’ve got two weeks before she goes back to school so plenty of time.  In the meantime I have floors to mop and an Everest-size pile of ironing calling my name ……
