Now, onto another dress!
I had so much fun making this dress because it was EEAASY!
I just wish i could get a good picture!

Here is the pattern..The whole "Fast and Easy" is what caught my eye.
The back of it gives a better picture of the shape of the dress.
as you can see there are just a few pieces. The front bodice, back bodice, straps and the skirt!
I actually used a skirt from my simplicity pattern 2443 because I wanted the bottom to be fuller.
So here I am drawing the lines for the pleat for the bodice...
 And I hate that I don't have a serger...urrr. So i always try to cut the bottom right next to the selvage that way when I hem it it is nice and clean and there wont be any fraying.
Oh..and then I added ruffles to the top of it.

So I am linking this to  The Summer of No Pants
Just click on the link for details..

(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.

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
