holy tarnation!!! i did it!!!! i followed a pattern and i made a skirt with a zipper in it!!!! (the skirt was made from the thrift store find sheets that i got for $1) if i wasn't a good girl who goes to church regularly i would be swearing like a drunken sailor out of jubilee! i feel like i can actually *try* and make that cute little dress for the little one that i've been holding onto the pattern for oh i don't know how long because i would get hives and start getting the sensation to hurl whenever i thought about following the pattern...but i think i can attempt it now...i mean it says "easy" on the pattern... oh dear heavens where's the trash can!!! i can do it i can do it i can do it...can i do it?
