My boyfriend is picking up HIS sewing machine tomorrow for an art project he is working on. I have had it for about 3 years and have used it about a handful of times. Of course, I see these dress patterns available at burdastyle.com. They are Elizabeth Taylor inspired which inspires me- but the reality is that I probably won't use the sewing machine. I am always cutting my clothes but I don't tailor them- I don't want to take the time.
