My Son made his Girlfriend a Dress

He called last week and asked me to bring my sewing machine.  Did he have some mending?  No.  He wanted to make his girlfriend a dress. 

“Why?”

“I just do.  Will you teach me?”

A hesitant, “OK”.

Friday evening, we went shopping.  He found a  pattern, a simple wrap dress.  The fabric he fell in love with was a shiny polyester.  Not a good idea for a first project, but I couldn’t sway him.  We also got interfacing and thread and headed home. 

Saturday, we cut and started sewing.  My son is 6′ 5″.  It was easier for him to sit and cut.

 

Even Biscuit was amazed at his progress!

And, here we have the finished dress.  He was rather pleased with himself.  And I cannot say that I was not proud of him.  OK.  I will admit that I did some of the harder parts, but it’s mostly his work.  We only had two days.  And, you know what?  He wants to do it again!
