Who Wore It First...


Daughter & Mom were spotted in New York gliding across Fifth Avenue sporting a lovely animal print. Of course, the ultimate question was asked - Who Wore It First... and after much ado... the Answer - Mom wore it first... b/c she made her dress first....LoL... After completing the garment I was left with 3 yards of this lovely fabric and my dd grabbed it up with a swiftness and did her no-sew move. She loves to wear sarongs and Presto!!! she had whipped up this lovely gown.

After causing an all-time disaster of 3!!! not 1, not 2, but 3 dresses, I licked my wounds and worked up this quick and easy garment. But, will say the reason for my disasters were not wholly my fault....lol. My sewing machine was going on the fritz, and I continued working on the garments and finally after the 3rd dress horror, I knew I had to send my sewing machine to the repair shop.


Well what is a destined sewist to do without a sewing machine.... Well I tried to fix my very first sewing machine, but it was so archaic, that I just put it back in the sewing case and tipped toed on over to Sears and purchased a Kenmore 19233. A gurl's gotta have a back-up ya know....lol.
and my baby girl just celebrated her 20th Birthday Day!!!


Ok... back to looking for my knit project.....

You both look fabulous (I can't believe you have a 20 yo daughter!). And if you didn't mention that your daughter's dress was no-sew I would never have guessed... very clever.

It doesn't matter who is first! You both look fabulous! A no sew effort too! I would have never guessed. Fabulous! I just had my sewing machine fixed and I am too happy. I hope you get yours back soon.

I love both dresses! They both look great on you two! Too fun! I think sarongs are so neat, but I have no idea how they work. And, of course, a backup machine is needed!

You both look amazing! I am in the market for a sewing machine. I am a totally new sewer so I am looking for something that's easy to use but is still good quality. Any recommendations?
