My 2nd-hand Necchi sewing machine died recently.
Which left me with material and a zipper for a pair of concert pants and no way to make the pants.
Even worse, I made this nice pair of pencil pants in May…
And was extremely proud of the fact that I modified the waist so that the look was less Mom-style pants and more “hip” (in both senses of the word.) But my modifications resulted in a problem – waist gap. And even though Kate Middleton has made showing off her (lack of) underwear a somewhat “in” thing, I’m not comfortable going that route.
Fixing the waist band means taking it off, re-cutting and re-sewing, so I splurged and bought a NEW sewing machine. It’s a Pfaff Smarter model and I was assured that this basic version will do pretty much all I need.
(Besides, it goes with my decor…)
Learning to make your own clothes…what could be smarter than that?
Yes, I’m officially a year older today!
Which doesn’t mean I’ve gained any more wisdom…
(But then again life wouldn’t be as much fun, would it?)
