  1. I've been following your adventures in dressmaking and I'm finally nearing the point where I want (and need) to get back into sewing! I used to love to sew and made a lot of my own clothes, especially dresses and skirts, so they would fit perfectly in high school and college. The last thing I made was a dressy long skirt for my mother-in-law. She wore it for many years.

    And after interacting with you and others, including reading through expert reviews, I realize my 1971 machine is so old that it will be cheaper to buy a newer one with more features than to even recondition it. I liked it because it's a cabinet model, and makes sewing very easy. My mom always preferred portables, because they were easy to transport and store. She was a master seamstress, and I'm sorry she's lost most of her vision so she can't enjoy this hobby with me any longer.

    Anyway, now I'm looking at sewing machines, and I'm amazed at what they can do! I remember when doing a simple button hole was a BIG DEAL! I never learned to sew with super stretchy fabrics, so that's something I want to try.

    Love your creations!
