My Mother Will Be So Proud

I have fond memories of mom sewing and she was so good at it.  And she did a great job of teaching me to sew.  I have clearly stated here more than once that I just don’t really like to sew.  Mom taught me so well to sew that I really have no excuse; I know HOW to sew; I just don’t like to.  And then comes Caresse, and she is all talented and loves to sew, however, she needed me to teach her some basic things.  So I thought that the easiest way to do this was to sew a skirt for me and teach her from that.  Well, one thing led to another, and the wonderful book that we got, Sew What-Skirts, really motivated me and I bought fabric for 4 skirts - 2 for me, 1 for Caresse and 1 for Kalyn.  Above is the 1st one...a VERY simple but cute skirt for me.  
Did I do O.K.?

  5. Nice!

    I am in the same boat with you with my mom being a great seamstress.

    My daughter has recently got me started a little too, but not on clothes yet.

    I wish I could sew- never could. I was also so nervous I would make a mistake- so I just didn't do it.
