My First Sewing Creation

This is a somewhat blurry photo of the first garment I ever sewed and actually wore.  My grandmother helped my cousin and me make these halter tops when we were about 9 and 10 years old.  I wore this to school as often as my mom could get it laundered because I was so proud of it.  It is completely hand stitched.  Of course, the only stitching to it is all around the clean finished edges and the bias binding for the neck and tie..

How right you were to be so proud of what you had accomplished! Look at the lifetime of enjoyment you've had with this and your amazing talent. It all started with one single top.

That is such a sweet idea to frame your first garment you made. If I did that I'd have to have a really large frame to capture a super full red and white polka dotted half apron I made for my mom. haha Good Luck on the CSI Challenge. Following along now. Pam @ Sallygoodin
