People sew in my family. My Grandma was a quilter and my mom made us clothing. Bravely letting Amy and I pick any fabric we wanted at Joann's for our stirrup pants and jams. I can only hope I'm as open minded someday. The 80's were not kind to apparel fabric.
I came to sewing late, but I have not been deterred. First up. The internet famous Wiksten Tank for myself and the Emerson Tunic Dress for Amelia. At this stage in the game it's safe to say I do more things wrong than right. Like running out of scotch tape and switching to a decorative blue.
Box pleat! I have no idea what the proper way to go about this was. But the pins helped me.
I may have sewn the entire thing only to decide it wasn't quite right. I may have ripped out every stitch and started over. And because I can't leave well enough alone. Let's appliqué a bird on it.
