I set aside my latest knitting project for a while and decided to try something that I've wanted to do for a VERY long time.
Like my skirt...?
Beeeecause... I made it!!!
All on my own, in a single evening, with the help of Brett Bara's fabulous Sewing in a Straight Line.
Her book is beyond easy to understand, and the projects are clothes that I can actually see myself making and wearing. Some that I'm definitely planning on making include two great skirts (one of which I made tonight!), a cardigan, a dress, and some cute home decor and gift projects.
I can't tell you how accomplished I feel! I'm totally wearing my new skirt tomorrow. :)
