I was starting to get a bit worried that I couldn't! I bought a new whizz bang Janome sewing machine last year and all I ever sewed on it was straight stitch! To make matters worse, I accidentally threw the manual in the recycling!
This what the pattern looks like. The frock is to wear to a ball tomorrow night. I figured that what I saved on the frock, I could spend on shoes..... so I bought two pairs. Just in case.
