Good news/bad news….
Good news first:
I’ve updated my free peasant dress pattern. Yea! All the sizes are on one page and the pattern now goes up to size 8. (I updated the link on the original tutorial page here: Peasant Dress Pattern. I do recommend downloading the new pattern if you haven’t already…) Also, have you made any dresses with this pattern? Be sure to share the finished dress and/or blog post links on my facebook page. I’ve been wanting to do a round-up of reader’s creations.
I’ve been putting together a new tutorial for a shirred play dress to go along with the launch of the updated pattern. Here is a sneak peak:
And a little screenshot of the new pattern look:
Now the bad news…
My sewing machine broke!!! I’m so sad… I took it in a few days ago to be looked at. (Most of the sewing shops around here use the same repair guy. He travels around town, picks up the machines, fixes them and returns them to the store. Good gig for him, but very slow repair service for us…)
So over the weekend, I started thinking, maybe this is my opportunity to upgrade to a higher end machine. I began to look at reviews for babylock, janome and a few others only sold in stores. Of course, these stores are closed over the weekend, so I was going to start looking today. (Monday)
Then Murphy’s Law applied itself and the AC went out in my car…
🙂 To the tune of $600.
So, I guess I will just have to wait a few weeks for my old machine to be fixed.
Once it’s fixed, I’ll finish the tutorial and get it posted. In the meantime, I can still sew a bit with just my serger and coverstitch machine. I’m also updating my legging pattern, so I’ll be posting that update soon too. I just bought a some new coordinating fabrics for a few more dresses and I will be getting those cut out and ready to go.
Now I just need a little cheering up… Are you working on anything fun? I would love to hear about what is on your sewing machine right now.
