BUT. . . I have to brag about my 8 year old anyway
H. has been so patient. We gave her the fabric and pattern for Christmas. And then our family got sick. . . again and again and again. Blech. So many advantages to having a large family but it takes F.O.R.E.V.E.R. for a sickness to make it through the whole family and by then the next illness starts. Nasty sicky winter it has been too.
The pattern is from Simplicity. They have created several patterns for people just learning to sew with extra instructions and simpler patterns. This pattern didn't have a set in sleeve for example, rather it is kind of like a short kimono sleeve that is just cut out as part of the bodice. Great for beginners.
So, yeah I'm proud of her.
