When I was looking through all my clothes on Sunday to find something to wear, I stumbled upon a floral pencil skirt that had been shoved to the back.
I pulled it out, excited to see it. It is the first article of clothing I ever sewed! (Ok. Technically, I sewed a pair of pajama pants for Ezra very first, but the pajama pants were a tutorial I found online where you just slap down a pair of pants and trace around them to make a pattern and then sew the pieces up. I knew absolutely nothing about sewing at the time-I couldn’t even wind my own bobbin. Jon had to show me! I cut the pants out wrong and all kinds of stuff. So those don’t really count. The skirt was the first real deal.)
I put the skirt on and thought about how happy I was when I made it. It involved sewing my first darts and putting in my first invisible zipper.
Oh, yes. I am such a lady.
