Do the bathrobe for your mom, then the capes for Laura and Kirk. That way you have at least SOMETHING to give each of them for Christmas. After that, it's up to you. I say capes because I know from experience that they're fairly easy and quick to make, but if something else on the list is quicker to make then do that.

OH i'm doing kirk ,mums and laura's things first kirks extra bits going to the bottom of my list as he's actually just just getting me to help him/i do the sewing he learns to do it next time and my overlocker and sewing machine stay intact.

i think i'll do the sewing on the bath robe tonight as i've just got te new light bulb today(kirk broke the last one) i'll cut laura's shirts and skirt tomorrow. and kirk wants to cut out in his room (don't ask me why) and that won't be clean for a few days so thats all sorted.
i'll just have to figure out which of my things top do now and in what order.

Lace things sound tricky.

I once made a pair of trousers, and I've adapted blazers (a type of smart jacket, I'm not sure if you have that word in the US) into coats a couple of times. Sewing is fun but very time consuming!

What fabric are you using for the bathrobe? I ask because often fleece is easier to sew with then terrycloth, and it's warm. AND made out of recycled plastic bottles. Will wonders never fleece.

The rag skirt sounds fun. I'm currently making a shirt entirely out of old ties, which is difficult but entertaining. Good luck on everything!

Yesm, we do. One of my favorite articles of clothing is what used to be my mother's brown velvet blazer from the 70s. It's smashing.

I'd do the bathrobe (that sounds like it'll take some time), then the capes and skirts. Skirts are fast and easy, so are capes.

And so am I ...I mean...erhm...

That sounds cool, I'm always interested to see what people get up to in their spare time.

Just post pictures of all the stuff you make, or of the fabrics, or something. I think we're ALL too lazy to explain what velvetine cloth, polonaises, and stay-ups are. rolleyes.gif

::note to self, meet with Narth and teach her how to sew next time I'm in Illinois for a tedious family gathering:: tongue.gif
