Sewing Dresses

With my mom here this weekend I thought it would be a good time to learn to use a sewing pattern. I only like to sew things that are square shaped and don't require a pattern (that would be pillows). My mom however is a sewing expert, without her I would have taken one look at the pattern and chucked it (seriously...nothing makes me feel more incompetent than when I'm trying to sew). So here are the finish products, a dress for Ry and one for Sophie.

Little nervous for them to actually wear them, I think I will bring back up clothes in case the dresses suddenly fall apart

I am impressed! Sewing is way too intimidating for me. I guess I will have to find talents in other areas. The dresses turned out so cute!

You did great! Good for you for wanting to learn. Sewing is always intimidating for me - I end up with a finished product that is less than identical to the picture!!

look at you domestic diva. I tried sewing from a pattern with my mom and I gave up, way too complicated! Now I leave the sewing projects to her or Annette. Good job the dresses are cute.
