Confession time...

So I have always liked to sew but I wasn't always that good at it and I would say I have gotten so much better in the last year and a half.  My goal is to be able to sew prom dresses for my 4 girls.  I asked a friend of mine who is an amazing seamstress if she would take me under her wing and show me all the little details I need to know.  She agreed and I have learned SO much from her.  Nothing really huge but that all the little things that make a huge difference in the way something looks when it's done.  Well I figure if I'm gonna make a prom dress I need to practice with that dang slick material that scares me to DEATH!!

So I found this pink taffeta for $2 a yard and I figure if I screw it up I won't be out too much money since the dress only takes 2 yards.  So wish me luck as I take on this new endeavour.  I'll keep you posted as if I finish it or not!

  1. That stuff scares me too. Minky is the other thing that I can't get right. Tried it and will never work with it ever again.


Love all your comments, keep them coming!! :)
