This weekend my challenge was to finish off all those incomplete niggly little projects and I got a few done - Air Punching! Here is one of them ....
Miss S is quite partial to a cute nightie but we are finding it harder to get nice nighties in sizes larger than a six. For this one I have used a Make it Perfect girls dress pattern (Wonderland,) - Toni's patterns are in my language. This is my first foray in sewing with Jersey Knit and I must admit it has taken me about three months. I started it full of enthusiasm but every time things got a bit tricky I put it to one side. I did go and buy a double needle and had good intentions of sewing properly but buying the bits and pieces is always easier than using them, don't you find?
|Anyway I ended up hemming with good old zig zag and left the sleeve edges raw which leaves the new needles in their packet. Miss S said she liked the sleeves this way and that they felt nicer so everyone is happy.|
|I need a course, Knit Wit evening courses were all rage for the 80's House Wife. I remember Mum doing the Knit Wit sewing course, all of us kids got new togs that heavily featured zig zag. Did your Mum do the course, what did you get?|
