This summer my 11 year old decided to learn to sew. She wanted a dress like the costumes in Sense and Sensibility. We found a simple pattern and a fabulous gold cloth. But 15 minutes into the project she was done! She was just fine with Mom finishing off the dress in her spare time.
True to her word, she made supper on each day that I had time to work on the dress. It wasn't till Christmas break that I finally got it done. She is thrilled with the dress and treated me to a fabulous photo shoot.
