What is your history with sewing?

I started sewing when I was 12 because I wanted to be able to make my own pajama pants. I'm self taught and have dabbled a bit in garment construction, quilting, embroidery, and cross stitch.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I own a Janome sewing machine and serger.

When you make a mistake while sewing, what do you do?

Curse and grab my stitch ripper. If I don't understand what I did wrong or my list of mistakes is mounting for the day, I'll set it aside and come back to it later.

What's your favorite thing you've ever sewn? Can we see a picture?

A vintage vogue dress. Blogged here: http://rosiewednesday.blogspot.com/2013/03/vintage-vogue-2903.html

If skill, time, and resources were no issue, what would you sew right now?

That list is long!! I am hoping to tackle a tailored jacket this year for the first time.
