My sister-in-law AJ, has inspired me to start sewing. She helped me find some super cute and easy patterns for some sun dresses. Here's my first attempt. Not perfect, and a little too big, but still a good start! :) I'm hoping to make Emma a few cute dresses this summer, hopefully my skill will improve as time goes on. I hadn't used a pattern to make something for like 10 years, I had to learn how to do it all over again. So much fun!
Yesterday evening, while I was sewing away, Shane was so sweet and did a bunch of the dishes for me. He could tell I was excited and didn't want to break my concentration, so he tidied up for me.
So, here's the dress. The fabric I chose was a little retro, but in the picture it looks hideous. It really is cuter in person and in better light. Here, Emma just looks like a little Hippie.
