My husband taught me how to thread a machine over 10 years ago. His biggest mistake ever! Or not ;-)
Since then I worked for a sewing store and learned all I could about sewing, machines, Sergers and embroidering! I have created coats, bags, hats, dresses, and clothing.
I have lots to show, so stick around!

Candy Cane Dress
This is my favorite dress that I made for my daughter. I call it my Candy Cane dress. As my lil girl wears it I see how it flows around her and layers so nicely. I give myself some props on this one cause it's cute as hell!
This dress is an upcycling of two tshirts to create this one. The neck line was kept as I cut the pattern because I liked the trim. Sewing it up was so easy and keeping the neckline eliminated the step of needed a neckline. Lining it up at the shoulders was easy enough.
Cutting the stripes I measured out 4 inches width and tiered the layers and lengths so that they complimented them.
I kept the last layered finished commercially stitched hem to keep it looking "store bought".
The sleeves have a rolled edge for a flare and it's been something I have been utilizing lately and well.. I like it!
So as you can see, she's back in her favorite boots! But this time it works with the dress. Like I said, I really impressed myself by mashing up two tshits to make this one dress. It's uber comfy for her and she really likes it. That's all that matters!
