Sewing Class

I took my second sewing class at Sauder Village last night. I was exhausted before I went and forgot the manual to my machine. Our teachers are so patient. I couldn’t even remember how to thread my machine, but they both helped me out all night long. I also purchased the wrong pattern size. Lesson #1 of the night…even though the back of patterns tell you how much fabric to get for 8 different sizes you need to look at the front of the pattern because it really only works for 3 sizes. So I bought fabric for a size 2, but bought the pattern for a size 6,7,8.  Hoping I can still make it work.Calico_Fabric-Kleo_Pink
I’m making a little sundress dress with this Alexander Henry fabric.  I’ll be finishing it at the next class and will post a final picture.  Does anyone have a little girl that wears a size 6? If it turns out, it’s all yours!

See you back here on Monday when I’ll announce the Black Heels to Tractor Wheels winner! You can still enter by commenting here. Trust me, you want to enter this giveaway. It’s the best novel I’ve read in a long time.

  1. Hey Megan. Lauren is a size 5/6. If you can't find anyone else I am sure she would like the pretty fabric. I will pay you for the cost of the materials and your time.

  2. Perfect Tara, although no need to pay. I just want someone to be able to use it. Lauren will be adorable in it. Again...if it turns out.

  5. I think you know a little girl very well that wears a size 6 and would love this sundress! However, it appears Tara beat me to it. Darn!
