Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

If you want to master dressmaking, you have to learn some basic techniques and how to cut the fabric correctly. Sewing is fairly easy, because you can use modern machines (in order) to save time. Yesterday I finished a cardigan and I really like how it turned out. Besides, it only took a few days and the whole process was quick. I am going to make more clothes (in order) to give to my friends.

I'll be right with you...
