I have learnt by my mistakes: Sewing machines now are Bernina 720, Bernina 1008, Bernina 801 from 1981, Brother overlocker, ancient but works well

No need to wait for someone to take you out @Iminei wear it asap and as often as possible. It's lovely.

Possibly a bit late @Iminei, but you won't go far wrong with the Janome Blue Tip needle on pretty much any fabric unless it's very thick. I use them 99% of the time and saves the bother of changing the needle. My overlocker (Brother) doesn't like them though..... Just do a test if you're unsure.

I generally keep a set of microtex needles in for any fabric that is a bit dense.  They are a marvel.

And sure why the face re quilting cotton.  I love quilting cotton for summer skirst and dresses.  Fab job on the topstitching and the dress really suits you.

Oh @Iminei  that looks wonderful on you!  I love that pattern!  I've made at least three and have another in mind.  You'll look great in Tescos esp with the slippers ;) xx

That’s a lovely dress.  And the pink slippers just sets it off right! :thumb: :laughing:
