I wasn't sure whether to make this a Wardrobe Wednesday or a Project 2011 post. Since my original WW plan didn't work out, and I've got other ideas for Project 2011, WW wins!
You all may remember that I am learning to sew this year. I think I may have started on a little more challenging of a project than I intended. Thanks to RasJane, who came over and walked me through the sewing steps, I was able to finish Princess' nightgown a couple of weeks ago. RasJane has been sewing since she was a child and really knows what she's doing.
I believe my next projects will be much simpler . . . things like gift bags, aprons and pillows. Then maybe I'll move up to something just a little bit more challenging. I may also steer clear of the cheap patterns. It seems the more expensive ones are easier to follow.
Still, all in all, I am very pleased with the nightgown results.
And Princess was more than happy to show off her modeling moves.
The bottom line . . . Princess loves her new nightgown and I made it long enough and big enough that it will fit her for at least a couple of years.
Now head on over to our Wardrobe Wednesday sponsor, Aliceson, at Feet Off the Table to see what all the cool kids are wearing.
