I did it! I created a dress on my sewing machine. I have been searching the 1/2 off bin at my local fabric store for 1-2 meter bits that I can use for practice. I found this beautiful fabric that I used for the skirt there for $3 and I only used half of it on this dress. After a lot of trouble with the fit of the dress I decided to use no-sew snaps to make it easier to get in and out of. I hope Sage and her mommy love it.
