That is gorgeous!  And with that lace inset...SuperSexy!  You look great!  I had to look twice to see what you made that from because I couldn't believe it could look that good.  Did you finish the edges of the knit?  If so, how?

I wish I could say I was fancier with the edging, but I just turned it under a quarter inch and then again and ran a straight stitch to hold it in place.

IMO, with that design, simple is best and it didn't need anything else.  It's gorgeous.

Me too!  I haven't owned a machine in years, but just ordered myself my first 'new' one last night!  Sewed on old 70's ones before...looking forward to automated plastic fabulousness.  :-)  I LOOOOVE this forum!
