I have to help with a few of the steps, but they can handle most of it. After you learn how to make this basic dress, there are a lot of options to change it up for a totally different look.

How to Tuck Serger Threads into the Seam

Wordless Wednesday- Christmas

December is always a pretty slim blogging month for me. Other bloggers are sharing all of these awesome Christmas craft tutorials and I am usually just stuck at the idea stage of any Christmas craft projects. I get all of these fabulous ideas, perhaps even purchase the supplies, and then we just get busy. That is life. I have been trying to simplify Christmas as much as possible. I don’t want it to be a…
