Recently, I wrote about a treasure trove of presser feet that I received for my sewing machines. Although I was really after only a couple of the feet, I am discovering how to use some of the other feet in the collection. My latest learning experience (Who says you can’t learn something new after 70?) is using the pintuck foot. The new set had three different sizes of pintuck feet. I had to label them so I can tell them apart
My photographs are not professional and, as we used to say in my art classes, I am using the “starving artist’s model”. But then, who else would model clothes I make for myself? Recently, I bought a mystery fabric box. In it was 4 yards of fabric that I thought I would never use. It is really far from my usual mostly neutral wardrobe. What do they say, step out of the box? Well, here it is:
It turned out well, I think. I used this pattern:
I did have to make a few adjustments to fit it to myself, but I am happy with the way it turned out. I made the sleeveless version because it is always warm here in Florida. I had cut out the sleeves but decided not to add them. What did I do with the sleeves? I made a matching bra. No, I am not going to model that!
I still have a relatively large piece of this fabric, so I guess I will be making something else from it. I have to think about that!
Until next time,
