Profile Information

I am an awesome:
My first sewing project was a bean bag, I made when I was six. I started making my Halloween costumes after my moms sewing machine up and died. So for five years I made everything by hand, and no pattern. For my 18th birthday/graduation I got my sewing machine. I got a dress form when I was 19, and had no idea how to use it. And now after trial and error (and Project Runway) I can use my dress form, I have started pattern making. I have only copied one, and drafted two skirts. I hope This site will teach me more.
My sewing interests are:
garment, quilting
My sewing machine(s):
MY machine is a Singer. I have named it Marla. But I have inherited two antique machines from my great aunt.
I am interested in patterns such as:
Mine. But if I need to Buy one I just look for what is closest to what I have in mind. I'm not picky.

I would say yes to your question "getting a little mifted". It is okay to be irritated with a comment like that. Just don't let it get under your skin.

Hi Kelly Rae!

I love your green dress... more interesting is your dress form. I often do the same thing...add my bra to my dress form. I got teased for it, but I'm glad tosee I'm not the only one. :)
