Before trying dresses, I thought I start easy by making some bags first.
And I guess I can sew too! :) My first attempt (fabric from Ikea) was already a great success and I even managed to get a zipper in the lining.
The first day I used my bag, I got 2 requests from friends to make a bag for them as well.
So, why not? It was great practice:
After these smaller handbags, I wanted a bigger one for myself, so I created a pattern for a big handbag (or small beachbag). And ofcourse, a pouch with zipper in the lining (to keep my purse safe!).
Next will be a bag with zipper closure, because I noticed that I do like a handbag which I can close completely (to keep my possessions even safer :))
Now I have enough experience to start trying out dress patterns!
