Who did you learned to sew from? A mother, grandmother a teacher? My mother was my teacher! I never wore a bought dress, outfit nightgown till I was in high school. She made everything. She also made Bridal gowns and bridesmaids gowns as a side job. When my mom sews she put every bit of Love she has in her body into what she making. She just completed this Scarlett O'Hara dress for my daughter to attend the 150 Anniversary of the Cival War in April! Why I think Elaina will be the bell of the ball in this!
