Lessons Learned at Sewing Class

     So I've been sitting here, off to the side, while my girls have been attending sewing class for the last several months.  It's been interesting, they've sewn a few items, learned how to pin up pants correctly in order to hem them right and have been working on tracing out, pinning up and cutting a pattern of their choice for their actual first outfit.  

     They've learned that a proper fitting undergarment can make a world of difference in the way your blouse looks on you, you can go from frumpy to fabulous.  

     They've come to recognize that though some colors may look good on the rack, the wrong ones will make you look like death warmed over.

Today they are actually cutting out the fabric for their outfit.  They're learning what they need in order to be able to make their own clothes.

Other lessons that they've learned through sewing class are :
  • to pay attention to all given instruction, don't suppose you know and walk away
  • ask questions, the only dumb ones really are the ones you don't ask
  • to see yourself the way God made you. 
  • to realize there is nothing wrong with you.
  • you don't need to try to look or be like anyone else
  • to stop finding fault with your body instead learn to dress the body that God gave you
  • to allow others to see the true beauty inside of you by dressing modest but with a perfect fit

I guess when you get the right teacher 
you'll learn so much more than you expect.
