Default I actually sewed this...LOL

I've had a sewing machine for 10 years and havent used it since the day I bought it....after a very LONG day of trying to understand a pattern, a few choice words and a small tantrum..,etc. SO, I decided to get it out a few weeks ago and try to use it again. I made a few baby blankets, burp cloths, stuff like that but I really, REALLY wanted to make a pillowcase dress. And thats what I did. I actually made 3 in the past 2 days. I wanted to post a pic of the first two and see what you think!! (I took them to work and forgot to take a pic of the one I made last night) My dress form has no arms so it looks kindof funny on it
And please ignore the HUGE mess in the background! When I start any kind of project, it always looks like a tornado hit!

Wow!!! I'm still too scared to try a pillowcase dress

Thanks for sharing

I honestly think that once you learn to sew, you never forget...just like a bicycle
