LOOK WHO CAME HOME WITH ME!!
Isn't she lovely?
I am totally in love. She is much more adjustable than the more modern Singer one I had my eye on in my local sewing shop. See how the two chest pieces look uneven in the photo above? That's because they are individually adjustable (not that I have uneven boobs or anything but it's still mega cool...).
The super adjustability comes from it being held together by these adjustable slidery screw things (technical term there...they must have a real name?). That means I can make it have enormous shoulders (just like me!) as well as adjustable chest and hips and so on. You can have a broader back and narrower front (or like me, ginormous both).
I haven't looked into the make much, but she will be called Jessie (as she is labelled Ese-Jane or Esse-Jane).
Imagine all the exciting sewing adventures I can embark on now!!!
