First things first:
I am NOT a “natural seamstress”.
In fact, this is the FIRST thing I have ever made with a pattern!

Sure, the applique stuff is easy enough…cut out fabric, pin it or “stitch witch” it to the shirt and then zigzag stitch around the edges.

The skirt, a different matter.
Last summer, I found a bunch of patterns at a garage sale for $0.25 each. They had NEVER been used and were up to a size 8 for girls.
I was optimistic and grabbed them as they looked like simple jumpers, dresses and skirts.

After all, they said right on them “It’s So EASY…” 
My first step?
Connecting with someone who does a lot of sewing — as a mentor.
Cindy LIZ! (Goodness, never blog with a Migraine, ya can’t remember anything!) was great and helped walk me through it.
Cut out the pattern
Prewash the fabric
Cut out the fabric
Read the pattern instructions
Make sure to measure and iron as you go.
That was really about it!
Now, we have a super cute outfit to surprise Miss Sarah with – when we go to Disney this summer!
