It’s no secret that I positively adore sewing cute dresses and outfits for my 2 year old little girl. In fact, I was selling little girls boutique style clothes for awhile (hoping to get back to it once my kiddos are in school!).
Nothing really fulfills my creative desires like spending a few hours hunched over my sewing machine with a yard or so of fabric and turning out an outfit that would net $70+ at an uppity overpriced boutique.
The truth is, most people have the capability to sew and to sew well. It requires patience, the ability to use Google (a lot in my case!) and really good patterns. Now when I say really good patterns, I am NOT talking about tissue paper patterns from McCall’s or Simplicity. Try to start sewing with one of those patterns, and you are likely to abandon your newfound sewing hobby before you even get the entire pattern cut out!
Make the process easy on yourself by starting with a quality pattern/tutorial
