Hey Loves.. I finally completed the "You Can Make It" Sewing Series via The Sassy Sewer. Yay Me!! It took me a little bit over a year, but I am extremely (over-exaggerating) confident that I can make anything... from a pencil skirt to a blazer, I can make it.. even a pair of jeans. :) I've learned so much over the past few months so I thought I should write a blog post highlighting each level in the sewing series and what I've learned. Keep in mind that My first day in sewing class, I didn't know what to do with a sewing machine, but now, you can barely pull me away from it. I hope this inspires you to learn to sew or at least think about it. Sewing is very rewarding.
