Em is keen to make a skirt too, a bit like her sister's, so rather than schlep all the way to the nearest fabric shop and fork out a fortune, yesterday we had a poke around in a local charity shop where she found a size 16 skirt with a ton of fabric in it to cut up and use to make one! It even has a good zip and at £3.99 that is a pretty cheap way to start off learning to sew. She is busily unpicking bits of it now. Han spent a number of weeks looking for something to rehash and in the end we bought her fabric, but next time she may be lucky and find the right thing.
