One of my Christmas gifts this year was a sewing machine. I have never used a sewing machine, and every time I even tried to figure it out I was filled with anxiety. My mom came and stayed with me for a few days and gave me a little help. I can barely sew a straight line, but I'm getting there!
One day while cruising Pinterest I found this picture of this little girl wearing this cute white maxi dress, I loved it, had to have it. The lady sells on etsy and has some really nice stuff, but the dress was very expensive. If it were for maybe a special occasion I could understand, but just for me to have because I thought my daughter would look cute in it...no way.
I dropped it, and moved on. Then the other day I was going through my closet I grabbed this white skirt that is to big for me, and I probably have worn it 3 times in the 2 years that I have had it. I put in on the ground to make a give away pile, I look over and see Ava with the skirt around her as if she is trying to put it on. Then I got a crazy idea...
Not to shabby for only sewing one pillow in my entire life! It also withstands the test of a toddler, I put it on her to check for adjustments, and she was kicking and screaming, I thought for sure it was going to rip.
This is before it was completely finished. This was also the ONLY picture I was able to get of Ava wearing the dress. All that hard work and she doesn't want to wear it!
