When I came home for summer I started work and never seemed to have time to spend a whole day sewing. Finally, after our trip to Chicago to get my visa, I had an extra day before going back to the kiddies (I spend summers working at a huge hospital day care). We washed the fabric, ironed it, and laid out the patterns. Surprisingly the whole dress making process didn't take nearly as long as the first time I tried it. The best part was that I sewed my dress while mom sewed hers. My mom has always said she hates sewing and doesn't think she's good at it, but I am here to tell you that she is wrong. Sure, she didn't go to 3 summers of 4H sewing camp like me (laugh all you want but I can sew anything now!) but she did a great job! Here's a few photos from the process!
