I dug out the old lace curtains I have been hoarding, and finally made something. No pattern. I draped across my body and just... winged it. As you can see, the fit could use some work, but as it was entirely hand-sewn in about a day, I'm pretty pleased. I wore it out the day I finished it. How could I resist?

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

I love it!! Now I need some lace curtains... btw: I made a skirt years ago from a ruffled curtain. Super simple... just sewed up the side, put elastic in the waist... I've worn it for years now.

Oooh, good idea!  Is it a wrap or do you have it sewn all in one piece?

It's a wrap. (Although at that point I did not have fasteners sewn on, so I had stitched it together so I could wear it anyway. I had to cut the stitches to get out of it. Sssshhhh.)

That is a fantastic job! Plus you did it by hand! That takes patience!  Keep it up! 

Next thing is to start haunting the thrift shops for an old Singer sewing machine and go on youtube to learn how to clean it and use it.  The Singer web page has pdf manuals of all their sewing machines.  If it's black, it's probably pretty simple to fix up yourself.  It all started with just one old Singer for me, and now I won't admit how many old machines I have.

Hmmm...maybe you should stick to sewing by hand. Just joking, buy you are AWESOME
