Sew What!

so i am already making progress on my summer goals! aren't you proud of me? maybe it is a good thing i wrote a post about my goals, because now i'll feel more accountable to actually follow through! 

i had to borrow my mother-in-law's sewing machine and haul it to the house i am staying at. i actually have two sewing machines of my own--one is a super new machine with all these fancy gadgets and the other is a very old machine built into a mid-century modern desk. but i have no idea how to thread either of them! here is the machine i ended up using:)

 i tried to make a tank top using another tank top i own as a pattern.

i used a vintage tablecloth for the material, with the cutest little tassels along the edges:)

everything went swimmingly until the actual sewing part...

it was not a total disaster, but my technique needs some work. this is the face i made when confronted with my mediocre sewing skills:)

my mother-in-law gave me a few tips that hopefully will help out--i will perservere! wish me luck!


ps--i don't know what is up w/blogger and why i subsequently have different font sizes on my posts, just in case you were wondering:)


  1. good work on getting your summer stuff done! looks real good! xx

  2. It is definitely frustrating trying to learn. A seam ripper is your best friend lol. Keep trying!
