Alright so I've played around with making pillows, sewing buttons on and little things like that, but this is the first thing I've ever sewn from start to finish using a pattern. And it wasn't terribly hard! Just a little tedious and time consuming at most.
When I first pulled out the pattern I almost stuffed it back in the envelope and walked away from it. I was just so over stimulated with it all, but then I sat down and took one step at a time.
I started by cutting out the pieces that went with the skirt that I chose to make from that pattern. (Skirt C) And then began pinning the pattern pieces to the fabric.
Here's where I almost stopped again. Pattern lingo is so simple that it's confusing to a beginner! I didn't know what the heck "Cut 2 on Fold" meant. I called my mom (the master seamstress) and she didn't answer. I tried her 3 times! I even tried calling my dad to see if he could put my mom on the phone. Then I finally Googled it.
So here it is. I can't believe that I didn't mess anything up. I almost did a couple times, but I kept my brain on and here it is! My creation. And my beautiful daughter posing in it. It's a little longer than I thought it would be, but I'm still proud of it!
