can you sew?
sew can i.
without a pattern.
and with many mistakes.
i will finish one day.
and in that same post,
i mentioned the shirt dress.
(scroll down to the end.)
i'm going to get to that as well.
but a few other quick sewing projects i've been wanting to try
are a simple skirt and
a pillow case dress.
(i made both yesterday!)
here are a few pictures of the skirt i made.
(if anyone is interested in learning how to make one
~without a pattern~
i'd be happy to show my process.)
my friend liz made this skirt and swore it was easy.
and i think she originally got a free pattern from oliver + s.
a place where real sew-ers(?), seamstresseseses(?)
(what do i call you people?)
it's a super cute site...
but like i said, i have an aversion patterns. ;)
i had two fat quarters of this:
abigail's skirt that i used for sizing:
an idea for adding another fabric at the bottom:
and the skirt:
(all of which cost me about $6 and two hours of time.)
and my reward was a happy girl:
swirling and dancing
and looking so sweet.
especially with that special smile she's wearing these days!!
she's wearing the dress i made today!
i'll post pictures soon.
happy st. patrick's day!
