Designs By….Me!

Remember the sewing machine that I purchased a couple weeks ago? Well, my sister and I decided that this weekend was the weekend to learn how to sew. My mom came over and provided some much needed guidance and after working on it a bit Friday, Saturday and Sunday, here is my finished product!

And here is my precious model!

While it has many faults, you can’t see many of them at first glance and I’ve learned a lot this weekend! I think when I start my next project, things will go more smoothly and I’ll learn from the mistakes I’ve done with this one.

But for now? This will be the dress she wears to the pumpkin patch!


  1. I think you did an AWESOME job! And what a pretty model, too. 😉

  2. I am so glad you posted a picture of Karys in the dress on this blog. I was hoping you would. She looks darling!

  3. So cute. She loves it, too!

  4. So cute!! You did such a great job!

  5. Great job! That dress and your little model are so cute!

  6. What?
    I can’t even sew a button on.
    You are one talented woman if you made a dress.
    Didn’t that require a pattern?
    I am not sure what is cuter….
    the dress or your model.

  7. I don’t do sewing at all. Not because I can’t but because I just don’t see the point. You did a great job. Keep it up. Just don’t do matching outfits for you guys. lol

  8. Aww..cant wait to see her pics in the patch!!!

  9. i happened upon your blog..and I think your sisters too as she blogged about sewing..which is why it caught my eye..I have been wanting to learn. My machine has been collecting dust waiting for me to learn..but I am impressed that you created a dress in such a short time of learning…now can you teach me??
