Can It Get Any Better

I featured this gorgeous fabric a couple of hauls ago.  I loved it sooooo much – just couldn’t figure out what to do with it.  It’s the second one from the bottom.  Unfortunately, I don’t think they have any more but here are some alternatives.







I decided that I would make a basic dress.  No frills – pockets – loop da loops or doo dads.  But before I show you the dress – you need to see my fancy skills.  I amaze myself sometimes.  I wanted to give the twin needle a go because my dress needed the perfect hem.  It took me forever to thread the damn thing but once I was done it was on and crackin.

Twin Needle










Behold…. the most perfect double hem you’ve ever seen in your life.  Make sure you zoom in so you can see it. 🙂  Guess I should get around to showing you the dress….well okay.  Here she is in all her glory and Yassssss Honey – that’s a peek of my new studio.  I cannot wait to show you the entire room….it’s divine.

Finished Dress











I need to take pics and do a pattern review but it’s too cold. I haven’t seen the sun in 2.5 weeks.  What I will say is that this was the easiest thing I’ve made in a long time.  It’s just two pieces a bit of seam binding around the arms and that’s it.

Thanks for stopping by.
