Visible Monday

 Here is the dress I was working on
for my latest sewing project. 
I used this vintage McCalls  pattern.
Unfortunately this may be the last thing 
I will so for awhile as my machine died!
It started making a plastic burning smell,
and than it just stopped working!
I'm quite disappointed as I haven't used it that much,
and now this.
 Dress: made by me
Vintage blouse and denim jacket: thrifted
Tights and boots: Target
Pin and purse: vintage
Linking to Visible Monday!
Bye for now!

Oh no! Time for a replacement sewing machine then. I love the dress, and pairing it with the yellow blouse is genius, aren't those cuffs fabulous? Of course I love the denim jacket too, no surprise there! xxx

Pretty, pretty dress! Sorry about the ailing machine. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, you look great.

I think that outfit is quite lovely! So sorry to hear about your sewing machine, though--I was just using mine today and I would be very sad if it died on me!

I love this dress...and I hope you get the machine situation figured out soon.

Thank you everyone, I'm afraid that it may be awhile before I can get a new machine. Money is pretty tight right now.

Very cute dress and I love how you've paired it with the pretty yellow top and the denim jacket.

Thank you Sacramento and Lisa, I really love that yellow blouse because it brightens up any outfit! :)

Oh no, what a catastrophe! at least it made something incredible before it died! That dress is gorgeous, love the yellow blouse beneath it, too! xxx

Laurie Duncan said...

Ah, thanks Vix! that makes me feel better! I was relieved that it waited until my dress was almost finished to die! All I had left was the hem, and I'm used to doing those by hand! :)

Love your dress - especially with the denim jacket. Sorry to hear about your sewing machine!

Laurie Duncan said...

Thanks Lana! I'm pretty happy that I finished it. Hopefully I'll be able to sew again someday soon! :)

Love brown, blue and yellow. Every time! So cute, but such sad news about your machine. I see a new one in your future soon. You will only have to lean hard on your loved ones just a little! You need this.

Laurie Duncan said...

Thanks Jan,
I hope your right, I sure miss sewing! :)

You always make me smile when I stop by for a visit! Your sunny yellow blouse adds the perfect pop of color with the rest of your look. Really cute!
