Mormor’s waist has expanded since she was a sweet young thing…

…the button on her favourite hand woven skirt can’t be moved any further over!

Luckily Mormor is a dab hand with scissors and needle…

Satisfying

…and a new waistband was easily made…

Mormor’s best skirt is comfortable again, and she is ready for the festive season.

  1. I believe some of us can sympathize with Mormor and her waist issue! Happy that she was able to resolve the issue so handily! that is a lovely skirt.

    • We are glad too! The shawl is the “Lonely Tree” a free pattern on ravelry – the Quimper Hittys make it a lot, but this green one is special as it is hand-spun silk from a friend!

    • Yes! I think we could learn to go beyond “Make do and Mend”, but then I spent 30+ years in the textile conservation business, so I have seen the value in a well-made garment made from good cloth!!
