As you may know, I want to be a fashion designer.
I don't have much sewing experience yet.
In fact, I just started learning the sewing basics a few weeks ago.
For the past year or so, I have been sketching clothing designs, but I have never actually done anything with them. Until a few weeks ago, when my friends bought me a sewing machine for my birthday.
I was so excited, and immediately started practicing the basic seams and hems. Today, I sewed my first "shirt." If you really want to call it that. If you can't see in the picture below, the shirt is only about 4 inches wide and 6 inches long. But, it was still so fun! Even this small step makes me so excited.
I can't wait to keep practicing so one day I can make a shirt that I can actually wear! And I better get going, because I'm going to need some pieces to put in my portfolio for college.
Wish me luck!
