Middle-aged newbie sewist

I bought my first ever sewing machine in July, having not done any sewing since I was 13. I’m now 50, and I was not good at sewing at school – it took me two whole years to not complete a simple blouse! Thanks to YouTube, and ancient Reader’s Digest manual, plenty of time and space – and of course some beautiful fabric and a fairly simple pattern (Butterick B6703) from Fabricland, I have created a dress that actually looks like clothes! I am really proud of what I have made.
