Then one day I had an epiphany. If I didn't like sewing clothes I didn't have to do it. So I stopped trying. Then as Sophie's 8th birthday approached I started looking for a baptism dress for her. If I wanted to pay an arm and a leg I could get one. Then I found an affordable site, but they were all way to poofy and fancy.
So I got my mom to help me make Sophie a dress. She bought the pattern and supplies. She showed me how to do things step my step. She did some of the harder parts for me and in the end we had a dress.
Then a friend asked me if I wanted to make an Easter dress with her. I told her NO! But some time went by and I am not sure why, I changed my mind. I went to the store with Sophie. She picked out fabric and a pattern. And then...I made a dress. All by myself. I tried to call my Mom several times and she wasn't home and I was forced to figure things out on my own.
Here is the end result. It is full of imperfections, but I did it!!!!
