Back to sewing again!

I have finally used my sewing machine for something other than repairs. The very popular Vogue 8184 made up in a light cotton from the Fabric Store (sorry Tessuti!) though it is fully lined with your "lemon voile". I like the band at the top of the bodice but next time I will cut it on the straight grain as the bias has caused it to pull which I rrealy should have though about properly before cutting. The pattern did take some fitting for me but it was worth doing so. My partner was very impressed only having seen his trousers being fixed on my 10 year old industrial straight stitcher. The pink shoes (I NEVER thought I would wear pink shoes) were $10 at Myers.
