Lesson #1 ~ It’s harder than you think to photograph and blog every step of a project!
Lesson #2 ~ Take your time and do it right the first time, because undoing is time consuming!
Lesson #3 ~ If you have a ‘model’ use them. (such as a daughter the same size)
Lesson #4 ~ When measuring your child, measure not only their height, but shoulder width, waist, bust,etc. Because after you sew a dress you don’t want to re-sew an entire new one!
Lesson #5 ~ Button holes are frustrating and even more so when you undo them!
Lesson #6 ~ When attaching Pockets, ensure they are on the right side of the dress!
Lesson #7 ~ Take pictures for your blog before gift wrapping them, because then you notice you sewed those pockets on the wrong side before giving them to the person as a gift! (Luckily this is the step I just did!).
Lesson #8 ~ Practice does make perfect.
Lesson #9 ~ It’s easier to do everything right when you don’t have distractions (such as kids around).
Lesson # 10 ~ Just Sigh. Shrug it off and keep trying 🙂
Ps~ as soon as I unattach and reattach the pockets I will upload pictures.
