So I'm new to sewing. I did a little as a kid in school (the mandatory gym sack) but next to nothing since then. I got a sewing machine for my birthday a few years ago (sew a blanket for my rat at the time), and suddenly had an urge to play with it a couple of weeks ago. After looking at several tutorials online, these are the first two items I made, both took about an evening. This is my very first attempt on sewing clothes.
Gather skirt with elastic waist.
The second was a dirndl skirt where I put in my first zipper.
