As soon as I saw this daisy print from Sandi Henderson's Meadowsweet I wanted to make a sundress for my daughter. I have never sewn clothes before, but I saw Heather Ross do it on the Martha show and I wanted to try. So many firsts occured while making this dress...
* first time using elastic thread
* first time using a hem tool
* first time attempting (and conquring) a blind hemstitch
* first time poking daughter with a pin (ouch! Sorry!!)
I read through this tutorial from House on Hill Road and this one from Heather Ross's blog as my starting point. I started it in June and I finished it today! I kept putting it off because I made it a little too big and it needed to be rehemmed. Lame. Mother Nature extended summer with a crazy hot week. A perfect excuse to finish if you ask me. Now excuse me while I put my iron away. : )
