What do you think of the Rosie Shorts I made? This was officially my first ever full garment piece that I can actually wear. I'm pretty happy with them! The roses pattern is so lovely and it goes very nicely with the white lace. For another example of DIY sewing projects; check out Pink Penguins blog, she made a lovely floral skirt that I definitely would like to make myself.
P.S: The pattern I used was by McCalls. It was just a simple pyjama pattern.
