This is my first attempt at the exposed zipper and it was a success (thanks Professor Pincushion for the tutorial ).  I will not use the hem tape again. Using hem tape for this project let a weird gluey residue that needed…See More

Hooray I Made ItHow exciting!! Right,  I was 1 of 56 chosen to move onto Round 2 of this contest. Not a bad deal when you consider 140 sewers were in Round 1.

I love the dress you made for the cover of your local magazine, how were you chosen for this magazine? I'm sure it was a very exciting happening!
