I can’t sew. I mean, I made a teddy bear when I was in 8th grade. I’ve stitched a straight line to finish some Ikea curtains. But when I’m poking around the internet, looking at the cute clothes I often think to myself, “I could make that!” Now, it is very likely that I could not make that. But I have inherited the “I could make that” gene from my mother. Only problem is that she – my mother the Home Ec teacher, and master crafter – CAN indeed, make that. I DO own an amazing sewing machine (that She-Who-Can-Make-That bought me). But so far, just looking at it isn’t getting anything accomplished. Shocking, I know.
I could make this, right?
I probably couldn’t make this. But doesn’t she look just like a beautiful little giftie from Tiffany?
Important note: these companies don’t know me, but I love their clothes, and they shouldn’t worry about me actually copying their designs, unless simply looking at a sewing machine somehow magically creates a garment – and as mentioned previously, no luck there so far.
Second important note: Mr. Pickle Pumpkin is a boy. And gestating plum baby is an unknown. Does drooling over dresses mean we’re looking at double XX chromosomes this time around? Stay tuned…
