Hello there, so as the title if this post says I’m still here and still sewing away. I am currently waiting on a computer ( this post is being typed up on my phone…. Let’s see how it goes) I’m hoping to have a computer real soon, I’m missing blogging a lot. And have heaps to share!
I have a new sewing machine to show you (thank you Santa) It’s a brother FS-40, it’s my first computerised machine and we’re still getting to know one another! There are lots of argh moments, that being there are heaps of ahh moments too.
So what have I been up to…. I’ve been doing a lot if alterations as ever. I love alterations I get to work with different fabrics and a bit if problem solving too. This dress needed its sleeves removed, it’s vintage and I decided to go with contrast bias binding for a finish.
When I was ripping out the seams of the sleeve I was a bit heavy handed…. I ripped the dress by about an inch. I decided to use my French curve and cut the rip out!
I decided to go with the contrast binding as it emulated the trim on the neck line!
I used blue thread from the stash…. It’s like a spaghetti junction in my box, how do you store yours?
After some pressing I think it’s turned out well…. I would even go as far as to say I would wear this vintage lovely!
TAH-DAH here she is, I wish I had taken a full view. It’s a lovely dress!
I’m hoping to have a computer up soon, I don’t get too many edit options. My general layout for posts would not be the way this has been published, but I so miss blogging that I had to give the phone a try!
Please do bare with me!
I hope you’ll all be glad to see I’m back! Say hello in the comments if you fancy, it would give me a wee boost!
