#1 Project Per Week

This weeks project is a birthday present for one of my best friends whose birthday was yesterday. Its a Sewaholic Gabriola Skirt.

Gabriola SkirtThe fabric is a beatiful Blackberry blossom print cotton lawn that is from our website so it drapes beautifully.

Sew-alongs and #1ppw

This week I decided to take part in not just one sewalong, but two! I joined in with the Sewaholic Belcarra Blouse sew-along and the Colette Mabel Skirt sew-along.

I have also signed up for the 1 project per week sewing challenge that fellow blogger bernieandi has organised so this outfit is my week 1 for that too, ticks lots of boxes!
