Sure, I can alter an existing piece of clothing:
(Dahlia sweatshirt for me)
(gnarled tree sweatshirt for father-in-law)
I can repurpose clothing:
(drawstring t-shirt backpack for Donald)
(memorial t-shirt quilt from my dad's shirts)
But to MAKE clothing from scratch!?! I wouldn't know where to begin! Then I saw this adorable skirt tutorial at Moda Bake Shop and the seed was planted. Perhaps I could make something for my niece...
It wasn't easy, but I DID IT!
Why I chose to make something with a drop waist and pleats and lots of topstitching is beyond me...
