Project Thursday - sewing

Yesterday, I mentioned my new friend Joy who has gotten me involved with Bringing Arts to Schools. In our initial 'getting to know each other' session, I discovered that Joy was a fashion designer... in New York! I mentioned to her I was attempting to sew my very first dress from a pattern and was already getting lost in the vocabulary used in the instructions. Joy, being the giving person that she is, offered to giving me 'sewing lessons'. eeee!

I received my first lesson this week. I have all the pieces cut out and I'm heading to Carson City today to find a coordinating zipper and some interfacing.


  1. Thank Joy for me. Putting a zipper in your first project is ambitious, but you can no doubt do it. Look forward to seeing the finished dress?
