My sewing machine came

I picked it up this week. Tonight, Lucy and I decided to give it a test drive.


Behold, the pocket skirt!

I used two kinds of stitches! (You can't see the zig-zag; it's on the inside of the hem.)

Lucy put it on and said she wanted to wear it for the rest of the day, and possibly to bed. She then commented on how it didn't twirl like her twirly skirt from Nana. But she likes it anyway. I told her I'd try for something more twirly next time.

It's lined, hemmed, and I made it in about an hour and a half (and that included figuring out how to wind the bobbin). The machine behaved quite well; I even think Nana will like using it when she visits :)
