I made a couple of outfits for the 10 year old before our Disney trip. Here's the deal though, I'm terrified of patterns. There's lots of tiny print, and foreign words, and little points, and all sorts of things I don't understand about them. So, I just wing it. That doesn't turn out too well in the end. The above yellow skirt didn't hold up very well in the wash (apparently I don't know how to hem properly). And the below white top I completely screwed up (it was supposed to have an elastic top...at some point I sewed too much over the elastic and it's REALLY tight now, haha) - it will make it's future debut as a bag :O). . .
The pink top and the green skirt both turned out great, AND washed up well. I guess I should go take a sewing class and learn how to do it. . .but, that probably won't happen anytime soon! I think I'll stick to what I know :O).
Thank goodness my momma gave me all this scrap material to play with.
