Lori knew how to sew. Watching her sew this dress was my first experience with wanting to actually sit down at a machine and learn my way around a machine and learning about how to sew with a pattern. I can still remember cutting out the tissue thin paper and pinning it to our fabric pieces! Sewing-wise, I really didn't pick up very much at this point. In fact, I could BARELY sew a straight stitch, but she made me this awesome dress (& a matching one for her daughter... sorry we never actually took a picture together, which I can't believe).
Thank you, Lori, for beginning to teach me how to sew! And for making me such an awesome hand-made garment! It's so fun to wear!
