Look what I found in my local charity shop
Although I haven’t read all of it just yet, I have looked at the sewing bits and think it’s fairly interesting on how things have changed and how things were made and fixed back in the day.
All I can say is thank goodness for the sewing machine button hole function.
Just imagine having to sew button holes by hand 😐 I think I would of had a full on melt down
I love the N.B. Tip
It says make horizontal buttonholes for coats, jackets and all fitted garments, for looser things like shirts and blouses, the buttonholes should be vertical. Who knew ????
Thank you 🌸🌸
Finally Finished her and Oh My I’m so pleased with her ☺️
Please let me know what you think???
Thank you 😊
This is the method I use to hem a circle skirt or anything that needs hemming that has a curve to it, it helps if your pattern requires you to cut with your grain on the bias, I know this is difficult as the skirt is almost circular but if you have some of it on the bias this helps by giving you a less lumpy edge 😊
Zig-zag your raw edge using regular zip-zag or using your edging foot/overlocker foot or your overlocker
I have a overlocker foot which since I don’t own a overlocker machine is the one of the best sewing machine feet I own.
I think it gives you a nice neat edge and leaves you with no stray threads that will need trimming of.
Sew a straight stitch about 1cm from the edge.
Iron along the line of stitches
Sew next to the zig-zag stitch trying to keep as straight as possible as this will show on the right side of your fabric.
Iron you skirt and that’s it
You can also do this method for a double fold you just don’t zig-zag your raw edge.
Thank you 😊🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸😊
