Easy sewing project and a great gift idea for little girls! Made the Playgroup Dress by Fresh Stitch Patterns as a birthday gift recently – fun and easy sewing pattern suited for beginners.
At the beginning of this year, I made a personal pledge to stop buying clothes for myself and instead making anything new I wanted.
Sewing up the Rebecca Shift Dress by Sis Boom patterns – sharing my two versions (including one Lilly Pulitzer inspired dress) and what alterations I made in between.
When I need inexpensive, cheap fabric to use for wearable muslins (or toile as the UK folks say it), I go shopping… Big box stores like Target and Walmart are great for finding bed sheets in the clearance sections to use for dressmaking and garment experimentation.
That’s right – if I want a new shirt, dress, or scarf, I will be sewing it myself instead of heading to the mall.
