Today was a big enough deal I made sure to secure a (borrowed) camera: I got my new sewing machine, a Juki HZL-E80. And I popped its cherry right away, whipping up the underskirt for Suse’s dress (both from Ottobre’s 01/1007 issue):

Silver Tights, Underskirt, Old Tattoo
The underskirt took about twenty minutes.

Sophie Knows Dance Ettiquette
P.S. No pictures in this series indicate how very, very much Nels wants to wear this dress. And dance /sing to Justin Timberlake’s “Summer Love.”

Taffeta Dress for Suse
Darn flash makes dress look bright. Dress is actually rather subdued.
