Learning to Sew

I was so proud of my 9 year-old, Abby...she made Little Lizard King's Garden Party Dress for her little sister!  Liz was updating the pattern, so Abby & I reviewed & sewed the revised dress.  It turned out great! 

This was Abby's second sewing project.  She did great at following the picture tutorial and sewing straight seams.  We used a large rubber band to mark her seam allowance and only had to tear out two seams that went wonky.  Tutorials like these from Little Lizard King are how I learned to sew apparel and are a great way to learn!

Awe. What a great job. She should be so proud of herself. And you, too!
