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.
