I got a sewing machine for my birthday this year. My first set of dresses that I made for the twins came out ok but a little big. Because of the startup costs (sewing machine, thread, scissors, fabrics, notions, trim, etc....) I figured that $25 girls dresses cost me about $150 a piece!!! I now have to commit to this hobby to amortize the cost of my investment. I'm loving sewing but not too great with fitting garments!!! Any advice from those seasoned seamstresses?????
