A huge thank you to Grandma for helping her through the steps of sewing her first skirt. Grandma is an amazing seamstress, a wonderful teacher, and has incredible patience. A perfect combination for teaching beginning skirt making!! She pinned up the pleats and then had Jessi sew them all in. I was blown away with how perfect they look for her first time doing pleats. (I have never done pleats so it is something I will have to TNT as well :)
Jessi sewed in the waist band, which the pattern didn't originally call for but she is such a twig that the original wouldn't stay up. She got a little off on one of the seams but recovered well :) (And just if in case you are curious, no she didn't put in the zipper, Grandma helped with that part :)
And she finished it off by sewing the hem along the bottom of the skirt which she kept pretty straight. She is quite the little seamstress already!!! I am so proud of her!!!! And I am so excited because she absolutely loved sewing and especially with her Grandma!!
She already has 2 more skirts planned. And I hear that Grandma has 2 more granddaughters requesting to make their own skirts as well :) Good thing Grandma just bought some new sewing machines. Looks like she will soon be hosting classes for all her granddaughters ;)
So that is what my Daughter, Jessica, has tried new this week. How about you?? Link on up :)
