This past week, I have taken a sewing class for the first time. For two hours a day I was Project Runway-ing it up while some curmudgoenly old lady screamed at me. Surrounded by seven year olds, I took 8 hours to make a simple looking shift/jumper dress. There's one thing I learned:
Making clothes is hard.
I now have a greater reverence for the Project Runway contestants who make really complicated garments without patterns.
I made a plaid jumper. I figured it was simple enough to make and that it probably wouldn't be sold in stores at my price range. I am really happy with the results. At some point if I figure out how to upload a picture from a camera, I will put it in.
