When sewing comes easier it is very likely that the result will also improve significantly!
So I get a discount on my daughters' ballet lessons in exchange for sewing some of the costumes. I mentioned to someone tbucket I haven't sewn any tutus even though I've been doing this for three years. Mostly just fancy leotards.
