This picture is blurry and silly, but I made a dress! I used this tutorial from Talk to the Trees, but because I don’t actually know how to use a sewing machine beyond how to sew in a straight line, I couldn’t figure out how to adjust the setting to make the ruffle. So I did pleats instead.
The belt part hides how wonky the stitching is at the join of the tank top and the skirt, thankfully. It still looks pretty bad if you really look at it up close—the pleats are uneven, etc. But I told myself that since I’ve been “taking a break from school and work” (aka doing nothing) that I needed to be productive in some way. So I’m happy to have produced at least one crafty item.
