Catch up:

Jenny: finally finished my written instructions for my next Tauko pattern & turned them in. Now I’m just waiting on feedback so I can make my next edits.

Enchanted Overlay Skirt – Copper Creek Patterns


Enchanted Overlay Skirt (Adult)

The Enchanted Overlay Skirt is a chic pairing of a peak-a-boo circle skirt lining under a flowing gathered circle skirt.  The Enchanted Overlay Skirt is a midi-length skirt with a comfortable elastic waistband. 

This size inclusive pattern is drafted for up to a 64 1/2 inch – 164 cm waist. The Enchanted Overlay skirt uses 58″ wide lightweight woven fabrics such as satin, silk, embroidered sheer chiffon or tulle, satin lining, taffeta lining, and similar fabrics. 

#pfNewYearsResolutions – sewing related – but listeners can share any ones they want!  The more unconventional the better – perhaps you are resolving to eat more cookies or take more naps – these are awesome!  

Jenny: More plans than resolutions.

  • Take BrooksAnn Camper’s skirt class – seriously
  • Take more naps
  • Sew more thoughtfully for myself
  • Brush up on my Spanish, with an eye to becoming conversationally fluent; particularly want to learn sewing terms

Beverly: I don’t really make resolutions formally, but I do tend to reflect on the year and set intentions for the new one.  

Sewing – 

  • Use my serger less – mark of the maker
  • Design my own patterns – buy fewer patterns 
  • Document my sewing process
  • Share a bit more (if it feels good – if not – I won’t)

Life – 

  • “Like water off a duck”
  • Pausing, resting, enjoying 

More of the same:

  • Walking vs running
  • Reading
  • Meal planning
