That's right... I did it. All by myself. I only asked mom 1 question and the rest I did all by myself.
I was officially informed by Roy, my kind sweet loving husband, that a ratty old tank top and faded pair of boxer shorts do not count as an appropriate swim suit coverup on a cruise. Well, then what do I do. It's not like I can just run out to Wal-mart or Old Navy and pick something up!! And I haven't exactly found a sewing store here to buy a good pattern. AND we still haven't gotten our sea shipment yet, so no sewing machine even if I DID have a pattern. But.... I had a need. So, I thought if pioneer women could do it, surely I could. I went to the market on saturday and bought some fabric. Then I took that old ratty tank top and used it to trace a guide/pattern thing. Then I got really brave and CUT! (No going back now.) I spent each day this week sewing, by hand, and ironing and looking and adjusting and looking again and sewing some more. And NOW IT'S DONE!! It's not the best little dress I have ever seen, but I think it will pass for the cruise. And once we are back from the cruise and I have my stuff (aka my sewing machine) I will go back and reinforce every seam!! LOL!
