 So this is the conclusion of my dress using the cynthia Rowley Pattern...
I don't know why these came out so blurry, I must have had my camera on the wrong setting....
And I woke up this morning and it was snowing!! So i had to try to find good lighting in my house and my daughter will only take so many pictures before she runs out of patience.
Anyways...after my last post listing all my frustrations here is what I got...I still don't think it's worth 3 days of sewing!!
but throw a cardi on it and it works for work!

Here is a shot of the zipper, can you see how I had to sew more fabric to the midriff? Yeah..that is another mistake that was made. And I think that since the pattern adds the zipper then I don't have to use knit. (because the pattern says "knit only")

And here is a close up of the collar. I didn't follow the directions on this step. I actually finished the collar part then sewed it on top of the bodice. The previous post goes into detail about this.

In conclusion...its not bad for $2.00!  I bought the fabric at Hancock Fabrics and it was on sale for .95/yard!
Thanks for looking!  I'm going to participate in

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
