She loved it and wore it a lot. I learned a lot with this dress (how to hem!) and she pretty much wore it out! I need to redo the seam. I used my grandmother's vintage sewing machine to make both of these dresses and really old thread so I'm not suprised the seam came out.
I was given a wonderful Mother's Day gift of a brand new sewing machine and bought myself thread. Things have gotten much better since.
I'm still making a lot of mistakes but I'm getting better at fixing them, measuring, using the right tools and taking my time.
I'm really enjoying sewing for my kids. I love it when someone compliments them on what they are wearing and my kids can say, "Mommy made it!"
