I'll admit that I was very scared to take on this project. I feel comfortable making pillowcases and baby blankets...easy stuff. But I had never made a dress...or really any kind of clothing. I told her I would try my best and worried about it for a week before I finally cut into the fabric.
Now that the project is done, I have to admit that I really enjoyed it! I had some frustrating moments and do-overs, and had my first experience with sewing elastic, but even I was impressed with how cute it ended up!
Nilma says she likes it even better than the one she first saw on Etsy, which was being sold for around $90. We figured that the actual cost of the materials for the one I made came out to about $20.
Now that I know making clothes isn't too scary...I finally have the confidence to start on some of the clothes I have been planning to make for myself.
