It was 2004, I was 12 years old when I started sewing. I made a fit and flare kinda dress for my 6 months old cousin along with matching PJs. It was baby pink in color with a contrast fabric of navy blue, just like the “Sew Some Stuff” logo. Yep, pink has always been my favorite color.
The dress and the bottoms were both cut by my aunt.
And, you wouldn’t believe what fabric it was!
I have no idea how I managed to sew it, but I remember my patient aunt guiding me through every step… A LOT of times.
Those were the days I made my first sewing projects under an adult’s supervision.
After that, it was all self taught.
I first got into sewing my own dresses in 2007, when I was 15 after getting inspired from all the lovely dresses worn by Blair Waldorf in gossip girl, but they turned out pathetic because of-course the fitting wasn’t right.
If only, I had access to these amazing lessons back then.
But, you don’t have to be in the same state as me.
