Domestic Day Camp - Sewing a Skirt

Yesterday, at our Domestic Day Camp, Jane and her sweet daughters taught us how to sew a skirt without a pattern.

It was a pretty large group of moms and daughters, which kept our 'instructors' very busy!

Jane has devised a method of how to use your measurements to make your own pattern.

They showed us how to look at store bought skirts, analyze them and then make them.

Once you get the hang of it, making your own fashionable and modest clothing is a piece of cake! How often do we struggle with finding clothing that fits correctly and is the right color for us?

Just as all of the other skills we have taught this summer during our Domestic Day Camps, they take practice and patience. They take determination to embrace our callings as wives, mothers and keepers of our homes (Titus 2).

It is a matter of learning to be fond of home life and domestic affairs.
