Hi, I’m new here and fairly new to sewing too. I’ve always had a sewing machine but have only recently got serious about it, so I’m hoping I can learn lots from everyone here. I’m currently struggling with a dance costume so will post for some help when I work out where best to post!

A big welcome from me too @Abi !  Grab a brew and a slice of cake, and jump right in!

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Hi @Abi what kind of dance costumes do you make? I have delved into the world of tutu's and other costumes but always steered clear of leotards  :laughing:

As it neared the top of the grade, it went more slowly. However, it still kept saying, "I—think—I—can, I—think—I—can." It reached the top by drawing on bravery and then went on down the grade, congratulating itself by saying, "I thought I could,  I thought I could."

Hi BB! Up until now I’ve only made easy skirts but I’ve just made this Clara costime for my daughter’s production of The Nutcracker. It has an integral leotard and has given me no end of grief!
