I know I've said again (and again) I can't really sew. I mean, I can sew a straight line--
a simple blanket, a simple skirt, a simple bag.
I have been wanting to push myself a bit, and when I saw this pattern on Melody's blog, I asked a friend if she had a pattern similar to it (or the actual pattern) as she has a large pattern collection. She mentioned that Joann's was having a pattern sale and grabbed it for me, along with a few others for me to try. She knows me well and looked for patterns that did not include buttons, zippers, or anything beyond my simple sewing skills.
This is a tunic pattern she picked up and the night I got it, I stayed up way too late finishing it... but I am happy to say that I followed the pattern and it actually turned out!
It has gotten me excited to attempt a dress for myself... I'll keep you posted!
