Sewing Machine Broken boo hoo ...

Disaster has struck, my sewing machine has broken ... well gone a but wonky.  Time for a service I think, sewing backwards when every it likes and messing up my fabric.

Oh well this lovely dress I had almost finished will have to wait a while to be completed.

Summery little dress with fancy horizontal pleats

2 hour dress

I have just finished making a pretty simple dress for me.  Not made a dress for myself for about 20 years and so glad I did. It was so much easier than I was expecting. I will be making more now I know I can do this design.

I chose a striped fabric to have a little challenge to match up the design and I think I've done ok.

Just need the summer to show its face now.
