I wasn't planning to make anything that day, because usually I would have been at work. So the only material I had was left over from making our table runner and faux roman shade. I'd been researching pillowcase dresses via Pinterest and You Tube (also googled to figure out measurements). So I went for it. I went into it just for practice. But guess what... it actually turned out! Here are some shots of my girl. Oh and she decided she needed to wear the crown with her pretty new dress. She even went hunting for it just so she could put it on for some pictures.
(sorry for the poor quality, these were taken with my phone.)
Here she is showing off her sparkly shoes.
So to all who are considering sewing but are thinking... I've never really sewn before, do it! I've never once sewed anything on my own. The projects I listed above were mostly done by my mom. I think the key to sewing for beginners... Don't be afraid to just try it. Just dive right in and see what happens. In my case, it actually worked out!
