My Mom and I pooled our money for Christmas last year and bought one of my nieces a sewing machine. Well, I knew she'd use it, but I never expected this. . .
She has made her first dress for herself!
And not only did she make it, she did it without a pattern at 11 years old. She just decided what she wanted it to look like and did it. She wore this to my sister's wedding reception in Saskatchewan. We couldn't be prouder.
