Will tell you the circumstances surrounding my loss after showing you these dresses.
Found this fabric and it was screaming 'Get me for the girls'!! so I said OK.
When I gave the dress to them they just fell in love with it.
Decided to eliminate the step of putting in a short sleeve so I decided to use this Tutorial by Marnae from the Powell Family when she guest posted on Project run and Play to add capped sleeve to the pattern I used.
By the way I used Simplicity 2828 for the top bodice, the sweetheart neckline version.
Used a navy blue velvet ribbon as the belt and four purple buttons at the back of the dress.
Only the top bodice is lined.
Made this dress for my sister. Using a simplicity princess seam top bodice pattern.
OK about the sewing mojo. So somewhere along the line I decided my bernina (personally don't know what the hype is all about with this machine model) and my other sewing machines wasn't keeping up to speed with me, and I might break them from overuse since I am always on my machines. ( I might be well wrong but thankfully wont find that out) because I started researching industrial machines.. Yes you read right.
One faithful day a little over a month ago I visited a machine dealer and tested out different industrial machines. My sewing mojo to get on my domestic machine at home was lost immediately. It was a 'wow moment' for me.
Now in the process of getting my new industrial machine delivered. Will be doing a blog post on this machine.
My husband even allowed me my own sewing space since my new machine will be needing its own space.
I didn't just go for any industrial, I went for a high spec machine costing more than twice my 'expensive bernina'
Stay tuned and I might be able to convince you to go get one.
Anyone with an industrial machine out there, what do you think?
Thanks for dropping by...
