While I personally didn't get much sewing done this past weekend, my overnight guest did.
Using an Amy Butler cotton print (fuchsia martini) and a vintage 1972 sewing pattern (Simplicity 9927) she sewed herself a summer dress.
A few hours of supervised sewing time and "Ta-Da!" she was busy modeling her fabulous retro halter mini.
She was thrilled with the dress - as well she should be. She looks adorable and she did it all herself.
She hasn't done any sewing for more than five years and I think she did an awesome job for a fairly new sewer.
I sure hope she remembers to add a lot of sunscreen before wearing this one outside for any length of time.
See? She's already busy contemplating what her next sewing project will be. Hee, hee - she's one of us now!
I've invited her to be a guest blogger here to tell us about sewing this dress from her perspective, so watch for a future post regarding the sewing adventures of a beginning sewer.
