Sew-Back-Thursday's

Hi Everyone!!!
I know today is Thursday, Throw Back Thursday that is..
I've officially claimed it as Sew-Back Thursday..

Here's a few pictures of garments that I've sewn in 2012. This is the time when I really started showing my work and feeling good about it.
I have certainly come a long way baby..

I purchased this fabric from Walmart and loved it soo much.
I used a Dana Buchman's shirt to trace, mind you, I didn't know how to read patterns or have a dress form.



I was soo happy with my dress form my hubby bought me. I started teaching myself how to read patterns. I was on YT all day and night..

I love this skirt soo much, she looks fabulous on me too.
Sad, I have yet to wear my skirt anywhere.
