aph-SuFin (My Art) 2

My First Attempt at Sewing Garments....

Please note, I have never sewn ANYTHING in my life, unless you count 6th grade Home Ec class where I made a pathetic laundry bag 25 years ago!!!
I've had a sewing machine sitting in the garage for about 10 years and it was so bloody dusty I had to spend 2 hours just cleaning the darn thing.

But I said to myself, I'm an artsy farsty person, I spent several years in the SCA watching others making my garb and if cavemen can develop this skill surely I can use basic reasoning and make a simple Chemise/Tunic.

It didn't come out half bad either.
