After spending the afternoon glued to my sewing machine, I finally finished my dress!! This is the first piece of clothing I have ever made so it is a very exciting mile stone for me. It is not perfect but I think I will be able to wear it to a lot of different events. There are still some little things that need to be done like put a hook and eye on top of the zipper and some hem work but I am happy that it all finally came together. The only problem is now I want to go to Jo Ann’s tomorrow and start a new project but I’m trying not to spend a bunch of money! I probably will anyways though because I really want to improve my sewing skills. My goal is to one day be able to design my own clothes rather than using another person’s pattern. I have always had the ideas in my head, why not turn them into reality?
