I wanted something special to wear to my cousin’s wedding. I already had this pattern. The material is the only one I could find at Hancock’s that I thought was the right style and gauge for the pattern and occasion. Cut it out less than two weeks before, and finished it the day of the wedding. Broke two sewing machines in the process. Finished her on my grandma Aleta’s Singer treadle ‘machine’. I use the term ‘machine’ very loosely here. I didn’t manage to break the treadle. I think the “motor” is stronger on it. Ha! 🙂
Update: My machine went back to sewing normally after this project. I think it hated the fabric.
