Sewing and the Janome 1100dx




I'm super excited to introduce you all to the new love of my life. She's 1 foot tall and about 2 blessed pounds: Janome 1100dx (She came pre-named). She's a beaut, and fits in with her Kenmore cousin perfectly.





Here's my newest project. It was so fun to design, vintage fabrics and the only thing matching is the the non-matching. I'm guessing there are many that will say, "Oh... cute, it's a Stephanie dress" rather than just "Oh, cute!" But, I'm in love anyhow. Does the stripe fabric look familiar? Your grandma probably still has one of these old sheets hanging around.

I am sew jealous! Get it, sew jealous. Man I'm lame-o.
I would love one of those!
So if yours ever goes missing it was not me who took it...
Out of curiosity, email me and tell me how much it cost.

Your awesome!! I love it too! I was wondering, I remember seeing an apron you made a while ago, was there a tutorial with it too?

Very cute Stephanie. I'm also impressed with your piles and piles of fabric in the background. Lucky girl. Love your new machine too.

I love the dress you made! It is so fun. It just makes me smile to look at it! You would be great working on a movie set designing the outfits the starlets would wear. Of course you know I'm a special feature geek and I love when the costume designers give their insights to what inspired the look. You would be great at that!
