A Colette Pattern and a Question...
My first Colette Pattern - I have a bit of a thing thing for wrap dresses (or just things that wrap in general), I own three and in this horrible sticky Sydney weather, being able to just throw on a quick cotton wrap dress during the weekend is a god send.
David bought me this pattern for Christmas and I am eyeing up a few different bits of fabric from my stash to make many of these lovely little things. I'm looking forward to an easy sew too - no buttons or zips.
Also, a question for all the sewers out there - what type of machine do you use? I'm thinking about upgrading - my Brother and its problems with tension is really starting to effect the quality of the things I'm making. So much so that I have to double stitch everything!
I'm eyeing up a Janome and thinking about buying an older machine mostly because they just seem to last longer and seem sturdier. But I would love your thoughts and opinions on other brands and specific models if you'd care to share.
Thanks so much in advance,
