Recently I bought a new sewing machine. I couldn't bring mine from home because of the voltage issues and different outlets, so I bought one here on Gumtree, which is like Craigslist. I made a few dresses for Lois last week--my first dresses with Sleeves! Granted the sleeves are with elastic, but still they are SLEEVES! It was so much fun making the dresses. I used Liberty fabric for this one and followed a pattern from Little Fish in a Big Pond on etsy. I bought the peasant dress kit a while back and made a variation of it for the Liberty dress. I can't wait to make more. Sewing is so neat!
