Bernina!

Shoes: Doc Martens
Necklace & Earring: Babil & Bijou
I wore this dress to go to my friend Angie's house and get a sewing tutorial & have dinner. I LOVE these skater dresses from ASOS! I think they are SO flattering on me. However, I am not a fan of grey, so this was a one time wear for me. I was pretty excited that I had a star necklace & earrings to wear with it. I don't think I have any socks with stars though...can that really be true? I *know* I have some heart socks somewhere, but I'm not that organized. 
Angie is letting me borrow this amazing Bernina sewing machine for as long as I actually use it. I took a 5 minute video of her giving me a tour of the machine, but here is a photo of it in action a few days later. I am making curtains for Super Boo's office. This machine is sooooo relaxing...it just hums along and sews through 4 layers of this heavy fabric without hesitation. Very different from the frustrating sewing machines I've used in the past that would clog up or break a needle every 15 minutes. 

Years ago, when I was in my 20s & people still used answering machines, we came home to a message from a woman that was looking for a walking foot for her Bernina. I thought it was the funniest thing because I didn't know what any of those words meant  & I kept telling people about the message until someone understood it & could explain it to me. Now, I have a walking foot & a Bernina! Though I still don't know what to do with a walking foot.
