We got home a bit ago from a quick overnight trip to visit my husband's family in Coulee Dam. 2 cousins graduated from high school yesterday, so we went to join in the eating and visiting.
While we were there, my sister-in-law asked if I would make the dress for my 5 year old niece's come out as a tribal powwow dancer next month. A dancer's first dress is supposed to be created with love by family members and I'm honored to be asked. I just have to make the basic skirt and top, other family members will decorate the dress and make the rest of the regalia. I do the most sewing of anyone, but I SO don't make clothing. I know I can figure it out, but I'm nervous as heck about it. I'm going to have to be on the phone with my expert seamstress mom the entire time. Wish me luck!
