New machine and plenty of clothes!

I bought a new machine yesterday! YAY! I got a Kenmore 19110. About a week ago, I watched my friend Melody use her machine to make one step buttonholes, and i've had machine envy ever since! lol So, last night I went and bought a new machine. So far, I love it! The stitches are beautiful and the one step buttonholes are a DREAM! It has 110 different stitches, although, I doubt i'll use them all. I would also like to point out that this machine is reviewed rather favorably on
Pattern Review.

I've also been a fairly busy bee sewing lately. In the last month i've made 4 dresses and a top for me, and 2 dresses for DD. Now, you might argue that her two dresses and two of mine don't really count because they are made from that pre-shirred fabric from JoAnns, but the fact that I had to sew a seam should count for something! lol Seriously, if you want something fast and easy, this stuff is for you. YOu just buy your yardage, then sew the seam. Yep, it's that easy. It really awsome if you have young daughters. They love these dresses!

Here is a pic of Burda 8377. Along with my getting-bigger-by-the-day belly. I don't understand how I look so big. I've only gained 6 pounds so far!

Last but not least is Simplicity 3762. This is the third time i've made a garment from this pattern. It is so easy to make. If you need maternity patterns, I highly recommend this one! For the dress I added 13 inches to the length, and it's perfect! The fabric is from Fashionista Fabrics

Oooo...a new toy! Congrats on the new machine! I love that YOU love it!

Your dresses are really nice, too. I see the pre-shirred fabric at JA all the time and always wonder how the final garment looks at the end. Nice job, T!
