Summer Day Dress Tutorial!

Remember the Girls’ Tee Dress, modeled after THIS at Target ? Well, I finally got around to putting together a tutorial on it! It’s a large pdf, put together by literally cutting and pasting the pictures and directions onto actual paper due to some pretty severe computer issues (like, buy a new hard drive computer issues.  Aaack!). The file itself is very detailed and intended for beginning sewists with instructions on how to gather, how to make a simple hem, etc. I hope you enjoy it, and please comment or email with any questions you have!

    You’re welcome, Dana! Let me know how it works out for you. It’s really pretty simple, the hardest part is the very first step — figuring out the fabric measurements. The rest is pretty intuitive. One of these days I’m going to actually buy a word processor that doesn’t crash every time I try to open it, so my tutorials won’t look so ghetto. 😉

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of
    websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

    I think that everything published made a ton of sense.
    But, what about this? what if you composed a catchier post title?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t good., but what if you
    added a headline that makes people desire more?
    I mean Summer Day Dress Tutorial! | Everyday Chaos is a little boring.

    You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write news titles to get people to open the links.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might make your website a little bit more
