One of Melissa's goals for this year was to learn how to sew, so I offered to give her a lesson while she was up here last weekend. She's a shortie and always needs to hem her pants (incidentally, I've never had that problem!), so we decided to make her lesson a practical one and hemmed some too-long jeans.
She did great!
I think she's well on her way to being able to make that shirt. Just needs to keep up the practice. :)
