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:)
