Hiya, hope today's been a good day for you.

I am totally new here!  Only discovered The Sewing Place over the weekend.  To introduce myself: I'm Sarah.  I like dressmaking - mostly exactly that, dresses for myself.  I've never been brave enough to agree to make anything for anyone else, with one notable exception: a cape, with a duffle coat hood, made as a gift for a friend for his wedding.  It was pink felt on the outside and had a turquoise velvet lining, as well as five squid-like tentacles.  But that's another story...  ;)

But now I have a little niece and the temptation to make teeny tiny dresses was too much.  Sewing for other people starts here!!!! (Here-ish.  One or two ongoing projects to finish first)

So, that's me :)  Looking forward to being a part of this community and talking to (and learning from!) you all.

Have a good evening,

Sarah

Hi Sarah - welcome to TSP from me too. Sewing teeny tiny little dresses is great fun, isn't it? I sew little shorts and skirts as well - all for charity but I love doing it. Would love to see pics of what you're making.

A big welcome from me too Sarah!  I love sewing for littlies - they love everything you make for them!  It's only as they get older that they get picky about lables!

Has someone got you a brew? piece of cake?

:drink: :cake:

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.
