A couple days ago I went to stay with my mom and got some sewing lessons. Might as well learn from the best right? I mean really - she made my underwear until high school!! I am soooo tired of buying clothes and having them shrink short and wide – or the fabric is too thin – or it fits everywhere but just one place (hips, or bust, or butt). So we had some sewing lessons! Here are the results -
A simple, feminine t-shirt. It has a tie at the back of the neck that might have to be replaced with a little button or something – but cute!!! Now, my mom made this one all alone as I was off visiting other relatives – but I think I can handle it, especially since I have this one to refer to. Here is the other one -
Now, this one is called Prairie Girl and it has a tie in the back at the waist to give it shape. And yes, the neckline is down to there – but you can either sew in a dickie or wear a tank – it is really cute!! I have the ties pulled back in this picture but it is really boxy shaped – it’s gonna be comfy! Why didn’t I learn to sew when I had access to my mom’s brain and natural talent everyday??? I really don’t know, cause in just a few hours she taught me what would have taken me many tries to eventually figure out! - And she makes it easy for me - explains everything so clearly!! (mom, now would be a good time for you to leave a comment and tell the world how I didn’t have any time cause I was too busy farming). Well, better late than never – thank you mom!!!!!
So far he likes them! (Maybe if I keep making him things he’ll see the need for a serger?!)
