Just had to share because I think only a fellow sewist can understand this joy.

I was at Starbucks the other day wearing a loose top i made from a scarf my sister-in-law gave me.
The lady behind me said "you look really great. Where did you get your outfit?"
I was thrilled to say "i made it"...
And she asked me if I sell them somewhere!
An ultimate compliment for a sewist!

Another thing, off the topic...
I just got a new iron since my last one burned my chiffon dress I was working on for my SIL.
I got Shark, and so far I'm loving it.
I don't know what it is, but I think the tip and edges heat up well that it's easier to press even the small hem.
Another joy as a sweist to find a tool that works!

Congratulations! It is always a thrill when someone thinks your work is lovely enough to comment on.
