“Can you help? My daughter need to sew a Civil War era dress for her history project.”
How could I say “no” to my baby brother? In the past few weeks, I’ve spent an astonishing amount of time teaching my niece how to sew. Most people start with an easy project (like a pillow case). If this was supposed to be a learning project, it was successful. She now understands why people had one Sunday dress and one everyday dress, not the closets-full that most people have now. Wow! Didn’t she do a great job for her first sewing project?
