Easy Peasy Top

This is probably the easiest pattern next to my dress pattern.
I made this shirt and its from a butterick pattern 5463
Only 4 pieces! the above is the facing for the shirt

And here is the front and back already sewn together!
And here I am sewing the facing to the shirt. 
Then all you do is make your sashing and finish the bottom hem!
That is my kind of sewing!
I have had the hardest time trying to get a good pix of this shirt!! Sorry, that furry blur is my dog. He would not get out of the way and my daughter would not get out of her chair.

So this is the best picture I could get...I even started paying my daughter to take pictures! Does anyone else have a problem finding someone to take pictures?

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.
