What are you most proud of? The thing that I'm most proud of is that this project inspired Alaina to start sewing. She liked it so much that she bought different fabric to make a dress for her best friend's birthday. Alaina never made a garment before and her creation turned out fantastic. She even used my serger for the 1 seam on the dress!!! (I did coach her, but she did the stitching.) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Choose a light - medium weight woven or knit fabric. Decide what length you want to make your dress, skirt or top. When using the elastic thread in the bobbin, stitch more slowly to prevent jamming, etc. But the dress is so easy (and inexpensive) to make, you'll make a whole bunch of them. For laundering, wash on gentle/cold cycle and air dry to keep the elastic fresh.
