Sewing a Dress

My best bud talked me into taking a sewing class. I hired a babysitter (wish you lived closer, Mom!) and the four hours in class zipped by!  Basically, we bought a shirt and cut it then added the skirt and apron.  I still need to hem it, and I'm thinking I will embellish the apron with gros grain ribbon.  It was really fun - I love having a little GIRL!!!
Last night I went to the mall to buy a shirt for the class and found these super adorable shoes for $6!  Caroline loves them.

HB is an amazing seamstress.  She made TWO dresses for her twins in the time I made one.

I learned some new techniques and grew more confident in my fledgeling sewing skills.  I will be making more of these dresses.
