On a side note... the cake was delicious.
I am attempting to improve my sewing techniques and be able to sew clothing instead of things for around the house. Most of the items I have made have been very simple designs. But I had this great Amy Butler fabric and I wanted to make a dress out of it.
So I purchased a simple pattern and went for it.
I still have to install the zipper but I have to say I am very impressed with myself. I was able to cut the pattern and sew it together all while taking care of a sick and teething infant and baking my carrot cake.
I will post the final product once I have it done.
