Hi Peg. I can't seem to find how to ask a question to anyone. I'm making a top using fairly sheer material. I'm thinking of adding a lining and am wondering if I still need to add the neck and armhole facings if I do? Thank you.
Hi Peg, I seen at one time someone making slipcovers with a hand held sewing machine. It been several years. But I found the handy stitch sewing on Amazon. I researchd Singer and a couple of other hand held Machines and decided that it was not a good buy or could be able to make the slipcovers. The Rex brand is suppose to sew over layers of fabric but it looked too flimzy. I'll have to wait till I get a real sewing machine for I gave mine to my sister, she lives in Maine. Anyway Thank you, Alice
As the years pass we all develop our own ways of working that, through sheer repetition, become a efficient successful means for producing a beautiful product. I've become so dependent on the mat and rotary cutter that I rarely use my scissors for cutting out patterns. However, a pair stays in my work apron for notching and clipping curves.
These three photos show how accuracy in cutting produces perfect flanges and the rear hidden zipper case. I've never been successful using scissors on the cut-out (although I'm sure it's possible!). I remain a faithful fan of the rotary cutting for home-decor sewing for its speed and accuracy.
Hi Peg, sorry it took so long for me to respond. I didn't see your message until today. Keep in touch and let me know what you're working on. Also, visit my website and let me know what you think www.jashandbagcentral.com or visit my blog jashandbagcentral.blogspot.com
