I have been getting Eliza's closet ready for summer and realized I don't have much for her. I am sure most people think I have plenty, but I like to have a lot of options for her, and the more I have, the less often I have to do laundry.
I started looking at tutorials on how to make her a Pillow Case dress and it seemed so easy. All of the YouTube tutorials tell you how to do it, but not the sizing and pattern. I decided to grab a pattern while I was at Jo-Anns picking up some other things.
The sweetest lady helped me, she showed me how to pick out a pattern, how to read the package for the things you need and pick out my fabrics.
I got home, put Liezy down for a nap and got all of my supplies ready. I pulled my pattern out and OH MY WORD, it is so overwhelming.
So here I sit, with a pattern, fabric and supplies and no clue how to read it. I am incredibly overwhelmed and already frustrated. I have folded the pattern back up and slid it under the couch. Maybe that will be a project for a different day.
Since I am unable to show you the best way to make it, here are a few great tutorials on how to!
Sorry for being lame this week, I just don't have the brain power to figure it out! Hopefully in the next few weeks I will master this!
UPDATE: Well, after laying around in self pitty I picked myself up and attempted to follow the tutorials myself and BAMN:
It might not be boutique quality, or even leave the house quality, but it is made! I definitely learned how to do some things, and how to do it different. I can't wait to try and make another one, with a little more time, patience, and RUFFLES!
Don't mind the picture, she refused to stand still for me so I had to go outside the door and have her stand and watch the kids next door play.
