Here she is sewing at my new Janome 6600:
She was funny...talking about how the sewing machines weren't this advanced at school...and she loved the automatic thread cutter. Then when I showed her how to use the serger, she was beyond herself because they don't have sergers in their classrooms at all. Okay, I find this hard to believe because there was an industrial serger in my home ec room when I took sewing classes so I can't believe they don't have a home version of a serger in the sewing classes in high school now!
A few stats...
She used a polyester knit print from the collection and this pattern:
It's an OOP Simplicity from my daughter's pattern collection that she generously donated. My niece plans on wearing the top as a vest with a turtleneck or alone when she goes out to party.
One final shot of her in the top...
Oh to be 17 with a skinny body again! *LOL* Anyway, I am working on my second SWAP dress...so more later!!!
