Published in "Sew it All" Magazine!

     I'm so excited & honored to have an article published in a national publication!
     All thanks to a friend, Pam, (Mr. G's Sis) that believed in me and encouraged me.

It is a rather new publication.  You'll find the article in Volume 8 which is now on sale.
 I actually got a 2 page spread.
        The title of the article was supposed to have been Waist No Time because it's about 3 quick steps to making a skirt without a pattern featuring a fast elastic waistband application.
        I had posted the waistband application on this blog a couple of years ago, and last year explained the 3 steps of the skirt construction for a doll skirt in a child's sewing lesson.  
        This magazine is chocked full of sewing ideas & projects.  If you'd like more information about this great magazine, please go to the Sew it All  supporting site which offers patterns for the magazines projects for free.  My article doesn't require a pattern.  You will find the cutting directions in the article.
         Yes, I made both skirts in the spread.  I think the models made them look better!
        I hope I have the opportunity some day to write another article.
        Also, thank-you Maggie for helping me proof the article.
