I started out the lesson by having my daughter hem the skirt of the dress and the sleeves first. She is getting much straighter at sewing, either because this is her 3rd project or because of the rubber band I put on her machine to guide her. (yes she has her own machine)
I am not really sure why she wanted blue and pink thread for the purple fabric but she was happy. After putting together the bodice I gathered the top of the skirt and she sewed the pieces and finished her first dress.
After the kids were in bed I ironed on some Velcro.
