If you look carefully, you can see three pairs of shorts, just waiting to be cut out and sewn up :) One pair for each of my boys, and a dress for my goddaughter. That's the plan.
I haven't actually done my one hour of sewing yet today, but I still have hopes of squeezing it in before bedtime.
I did go shopping this weekend, and that counts for something, right? That part was fun, I'm good at fabric shopping. I've been honing my skills in that department for a few years now. With some experience under my belt, I can puruse bolts of cotton with the best of them, confidently laying my selections on the cutting table. "I'd like one yard of this & this, a yard and a quarter of that, and two-thirds yard of this" just rolls off my tounge with ease. Yup, I was feeling pretty good leaving Joann's.
Today I opened up the dress pattern. I'm in trouble. Call Mom kind of trouble. (I've had alot of over-the-phone sewing lessons from Mom.)
It makes no sense to me, in any of three languages, and I keep seeing something about cutting the lining?!? All I can say is, I hope it still looks like a dress without one, 'cause I didn't buy lining fabric, and the shopping is done. lol
