I got my husband to take the sewing machine out of the attic and she came over the next day to teach me. She was here for about 2 1/2 hours and in between refereeing our 3 small children, I learned to sew and made my first project! Isabella was in a horrible mood yesterday and would not stay still for me to take a picture. She kept pulling at the ribbons and didn't want to have the dress on-this was the best shot I could get.
It's far from perfect, but I'm proud of my little pillow case dress. I used some clearance fabric that I found because I thought my first project would turn out awful, but it really wasn't bad! I look forward to learning more and using cuter fabric to make her some of these dresses.
I'm now in search of websites/blogs with great sewing ideas/tips and if you have any suggestions, please let me know!
