I’ve been cheating on yarn with fabric…

Thanks to the amazing sewing machine my boyfriend’s mom bought me for Christmas, I have been having a blast experimenting with various sewing projects. I made an apron, a knitting bag, a few knitting needle cases (and have sold a couple as well), throw pillows, and place mats. Can’t get enough!
My sister, Julie, takes sewing classes at her high school and is quite the little seamstress. She was over this weekend and gave me a crash course. Together, we made a dress. I picked the pattern and she taught me how to cut out the pattern pieces properly, sew darts, gather a skirt, and install an invisible zipper. Julie is the best!

Here’s our final product:
