As you all may know, my Sweety bought me a sewing machine for Christmas. It lived in the box for what seems like an eternity. One day, I was brave enough to take it out of its sleeping quarters, and give it a new home on my sewing table. It lived there for a while, untouched. I started watching YouTube tutorials for “beginner sewers”, such as myself. It literally took me an hour to figure out how to thread the needle & the bobbin. After I finally got it all threaded, the machine sat again for a few weeks. So one Saturday, I sat down and played around with stitching. After much practice, I finally got the hang of it. So you know I thought I was a professional seamstress at this point, right? LOL! Well, I bought this “project dress” below. All I wanted to do was shorten the hem & make me a cute little mini dress. Disaster!

And me finally having to finish it by hand
I present to you……my first DIY mini dress romper!!! Unfortunately, I cut the hem too short, so it would not have been a mini dress, but more like a tunic/shirt! So I relied on my trusty YouTube tutorials again to teach me how to transform a skirt into shorts….and here you have it!
Let me just say that you will NOT be seeing me wear this. It is now too small! FAIL!
So how do you think I did for my 1st sewing experience? Do I get an A for effort?
