Before I got started on Christmas presents I was distracted with sewing for the Georgia-Florida game. I decided to make a red dress for myself. This process included making and adjusting at least two “muslins” before even attempting the final product. I came to a couple conclusions through this process…1.) Traditional patterns have lots (lots!) of sizing issues and 2.) I didn’t really love sewing for myself. Since then I have made a few more things for myself, but they were from simple tutorials and much smaller projects. At this point I would rather do my “real” sewing for other people.
Here is the red dress…
The other project I did was small and really an excuse to use my new serger. I cut two onesies in half and serged them together to create a couple Gameday onesies for Dinah. Too cute!
