    Thank you so much!! I adore your Jackie Kennedy inspired dress, by the way… and I’m totally jealous that you live in Munich. I spent a week there once and I LOVED it. I’m an engineer as my “real”…

    Thanks!! They’re my first set-in sleeves, so I was very nervous putting them in… one is a tiny bit off, but it’s not in a noticeable place, so no one needs to know, right??? :)

    Hee – thanks! The photog is my husband. The towels are my mother-in-law’s. We were making her a garden for mother’s day… um, I didn’t actually do any of the work in the dress, though! ;)

    Another great way to get a vintage machine is to inherit it! One of my most treasured possessions is my grandmother’s Pfaff, which I think is from… the 50s or 60s? I’ll have to ask my grandfather…
