My first D.I.Y top & skirt (=

Hello ,

I am so sorry guys school has officially become the only thing I do all day! Although I love home school , it really shows how behind I am in the material , so I just have to work extremely hard. Anyways guys , have you ever had a really close friend leave you to either pursue there dreams or go to a college in another state half way around the world? I just experienced this for the first time and hopefully the last. My family friend / best friend just got the opportunity to play both baseball and basketball at Post University in Connecticut. We hang out alot so it really sucked to see him leave, but everyone has to pursue there dreams and I am sooo proud of him ! He is really awesome at what he does  and I just know he will succeed! So that being said Good luck to you buddy!Lol (:
 
 
On another note , I have the greatest mother  in the whole wide world. Friday , September 14, 2012 She took me to Joann's fabric and crafts store & bought me my first Sewing Machine , its a Singer Talent , and im just soo absolutely inlove with it. I got to pick my own fabric , elastic , patterns , ect. and I will never forget it. I was so eager to sew I couldn't wait a day , as soon as I got home I asked my mother to explain how to use it , & I immediately started ... my mom said I should practice doing straight lines & learning how to control the peddle. Saturday I made my shirt using a McCall pattern, that was kinda of time consuming , but not really that hard , and sunday I made the pencil skirt following my moms tutorial on youtube , and that was super fun especialy using elastic. I absolutely love to sew , and I will keep you guys posted on the clothes I make! <3 xoxo
 


 
Love, Lexi G.


The first outfit I made!

  11. As they say, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." But, truly, you are a style diva in your own right. You have done a wonderful job. To me,it is very rewarding to see a young lady, such as yourself, being able to create her own clothes anytime she wants. Keep up the great work!

  19. Great job Lexi! You're motivating me to stop procrastinating and just make something...always come up with an excuse there's no time. You got a good fit on both of these as well.
