Before Sugar Pop was born I taught myself how to sew. Thanks to Pinterest I was able to find lots of tutorials and adorable projects for my daughter-to-be. As a result I was able to make cute little onesie dresses such as this:
(Didn’t she used to be so little?) They were cute, relatively simple, and quick to make. So with Halloween around the corner, I decided to make her a little candy corn onesie dress. No problem, I thought. I’ve done this plenty of times before, I thought. I don’t need to review the directions, i thought. (See where this is going?) The good news is that I did remember all the steps. The bad news is that I didn’t really bother to measure. So, while it looked fine in theory, when I went to put it over her head, it looked like this:
Oops. It wasn’t even close to being able to fit over her head. Measure twice, cut once? Turns out it’s really good advice. I think in the future I’ll be sure to follow it.
