I made this practice dress about a week ago. It was mostly so I could see how the new pattern I bought worked for my daughter's body type. Of course, it needed to be tweaked, but it's easier to buy a pattern and then tweak it, then to try and draft my own pattern. So I needed to start with a practice dress.
Maybe one day I'll be good enough at design and sewing to draft my own patterns from scratch. I'm self taught, so I learn something new with each project.
I'm an imperfect adopted child of God and the wife to a man who belongs to his country. Before I had all my blessings (children) I was an Emergency Room nurse. But now I'm a home educator and domestic engineer. When I find the time, I knit, sew, and read to further my own education. My constant ambition is to make the best decisions for the health and well being of my family.
