Their version and then my version..

Hello all..
Last week a well known clothing company sent me a catalogue..we always look and dream but in all honesty i cannot afford anything in it.
My littlest girl fell in love with this skirt
For me to buy this skirt it will cost me £30..thats a big chunk of our budget.
So i set to and did this..thankfully she loves it and it cost me £1.99
 I bought an Iron on patch off Ebay..popped a little stitch on the edges and it was good to go.

  2. Excellent, I’m glad she loves it and so much better than spending so much money on something that will only fit for one season xx

  4. I used to do that, we got a catalogue and my mother chose things my sister needed, and then I made them... (my sister is 17 yrs younger and I lived at home at the time). I calculated I saved the new sowing machine in about two years, and it took one more year to pay off the serger. But we got fabrics cheaply (my grandmother's neighbour owned a fabric shop!) and during ages one to four/five a girl can go throug so many clothes... (I did sow winter clothing, and they are very expensive if bought new). Pity I don't have that much time anymore...
    But it was fun, and I enjoyed that I could give something to my sister she wanted, if I hadn't done it she wouldn't have had it.
