So I had an idea yesterday.
I get a lot of email from people who say that they wish they could sew clothing or they'd like to try. I tell them it's not as hard as you might think but I suspect my claims are unconvincing.
I'd like to help.
Would any of you be interested in making a dress with me?
I would post a detailed diagram of a couple steps of the dress every day. You would have the same pattern and 'make' the dress with me as the week went on. By Friday, we should have a finished dress. If a dress was too hard we could start with something simpler. We could use one of the 'free' patterns off of the BurdaStyle website. If a dress sounds like something you might be interested in, I thought this one below was a good start!
Get the free pattern instructions here and pattern here.

Let me know if any of you might be interested. If a large enough amount of people would like to try this, I'll give it a go. And if you got stuck along the way you could leave me comments and I could try to answer them for you.
