Its official - the word is out!

Recently, I moved from quilting and craft sewing to garment sewing. 

My first project: a circle skirt for Olivia

My second project: Olivia's fairy costume

And now the word is out.  My sister called me last week asking me to make a concert skirt for my 10 year old niece.  A few phone conversations, mailed fabric, and a couple hours later: 1 black concert skirt, made to order:

In this project, I completed my first zipper (hidden), first braided hem, first waistband (non elastic), and I got to play with the button measuring and auto button feature on my Bernina.  I am loving garment sewing, learning lots with each project, and getting more and more confident.  I'm so glad I took the plunge a few months ago.  I still have yet to complete a project with an actual pattern.....
