I copied a dress I recently bought by tracing it on pattern paper. Then I went to the market where I bought a lovely heart print fabric and made myself a dress. I even sewed my first pocket.
You should never underestimate the importance of pockets. You see, I don’t like dresses or skirts without pockets, because then there is no place to leave all the junk I normally carry around. Being able to sew a pocket might seem like a small step for mankind, but is a big step for this girl.
