Dear Fashion Girl:
I've had a sewing machine for about 4 years and it was only this year that I started to use it. I thought I'd start out with an apron, which is what I'm currently working on.
This summer I decided that I was going to do a fashion show. I have plenty of help and support from my mom. I would like to do the show in June of 2014. I have about two full outfits to make, but I have not completed a single garment yet.
I wanted to know if I should keep that show at the current date or postpone it until I have all of my outfits made and all of my participants. I really hope you can help.
Dear Fashion Flower:
Keep the date! You can totally do this by June. I have so much confidence in you. You have the desire and the ideas. All you have to do is work on the clothes.
Making an apron as your first project is a great idea. Why not also make some drawstring shorts and a simple sundress. I've recently started sewing, too, and once you get started you just can't stop. It's so fun! Have you thought about making any accessories? Maybe a tote bag would be fun. Do a google search for free sewing patterns and start brainstorming.
Please let me know your progress in the first part of the new year. I'll be your cheerleader!
