This is a MCBN post
I love The Sewing Workshop Patterns. They have just enough difficulty about them to make you think, but are not impossibly hard even for beginners. They are edgy and just that bit different. I have made several of their patterns and wear each garment lots of times, I use the patterns more than once too.
For this design I chose a Boiled Wool Fabric in cerise pink. This fabric is easy to cut and easy to sew and the best news is that as it doesn't fray you do not even have to worry about finishing the seams.

This post is all about my Overlocker - and rolled hems
The Brother 3034D from Jaycotts
An overlocker is used to finish most seams very neatly, it can be used as a hem, it can be used instead of a regular sewing machine to stitch stretch fabrics together. It can be in a matching thread or a contrast.

Vogue shirt Dress
A Minerva.com Blogger Network post
This fabric is absolutely perfect to brighten any day. With its vibrant tropical flower digital print it will bring summer into the room whenever you wear it.
I just adore shirt dresses too - without a belt they are cool and easy to wear on a warm summer's day, with a nice belt it can take you out in the evenings too.it is so versatile and fashionable!

I look forward to seeing your interpretation of this pattern and fabric

A Jaycotts post
What else can I do with an embroidery machine other than embroider clothes?
"An embroidery machine is an investment, so what else can I use an embroidery only machine for" is something I get asked a lot and I know Jaycotts have the answer!These are a few of the items I make on my Brother embroidery machine.
To view the range , this is the link Embroidery Machine
If at all possible it is well worth a visit to try a few and to discuss options
I have to admit that once my embroidery machine comes out, I never want to put it away, I find it addictive and before I know it I have been sat at it all day long.
So I hope that by sharing some of the things I use it for will make you realise that they are a really good investment. There are so many ways to use it and even when you think you have tried everything you could purchase the software needed to make your own designs!
Fascinating to watch, no matter how many times you have used your machine
