This is my very first (major) project ever. Since I turned 19 a few days back, I decided I would do something different and teach myself how to sew, and such a novice that I youtubed “how to set up sewing machine” (I was that bad!). You can’t actually see it because of the crappy Photo Booth camera quality, but I added elastic to the skirt part. My only regret was to cut off excess fabric from the top part and ended up cutting too many off that it didn’t have that bubble effect I was aiming for. Nevertheless, I made it through, got this done and received praises for my finished work!
