On Tuesday I took all the terrific advice I've been trying to apply — and completely blew it all off. I was cutting, ironing and sewing for four hours straight. It's now Friday, and I can still barely move. But honestly, it was worth it. I'm finally making something for myself and being totally carefree about it. No exact measurements, just cutting, pinning, taking it over to the sewing machine and stitching it up.
So much fun!
