frock star


So as you all learned in my last post, my career as a professional knitter has come to a screeching halt. I'm not giving up and will enlist the help of two lovely ladies who I hope will patiently guide me through the process again (and again). Luckily for me I have about a million other projects at the moment so I'm easily distracted. 
One of these distractions is a dressmaking class where yet again my impatience always shines through (seems don't line up? who cares!). Despite all of this, I am in love with my class. I can't read patterns or grasp how to use my machine for the life of me but it doesn't matter.  Each week I come home bursting with ideas and energy that will hopefully, in a few weeks time, transform itself into a wearable garment - a dress (or frock) to be exact. Now isn't that fancy?  I've decided each week to post my progress, mostly as a way to hold myself accountable, but also to document the process...

oh, how this is reminding me of the sewing class i took 5 years ago. i made a skirt with an elastic waist and a khaki shift dress that had no zipper (so you had to pull it over your head and squeeze into it). although my finished products weren't "ready to wear", i learned the basics on my machine, which is all you really need to get started. this reminds me that i started xmas stockings 2 years ago that are close to completion....i need to get back on the old singer. good luck and stick with it!

Keep plugging along Jaclyn, you'll master it but it'll take some perseverance! Thats why i like my age old singer machine without all the fancy gadgets!
