With a week and a half left until school starts and being home alone all day I felt like I was going stir crazy last week. I realized there wasn't a better time to learn some of my favorite hobbies because when school starts back up next week, I know I will no longer have the time or luxury.
I got my very first sewing machine last Christmas and in the last eight months and a zipper pouch was the only thing I have made. I already felt like that zipper pouch was a bit ambitious for someone who went into the project only knowing how to thread the machine. Well I did the very same thing this last week, took on another ambitious project for a beginning sewer. I have been head over heels crazy about the A-line pleated skirts I have seen all over the internet so I found this tutorial and gave it a try.
Don't get me wrong, that sewing machine was at its slowest speed the whole time and I had to seam rip a few things but other than that, I was so happy with how it turned out. I think my best moment though was getting the invisible zipper on my first try! I'm pretty sure my fabulous seamstress of a grandmother would be proud right now.
