Wonderful use of using things from your own stash- I hope that when it comes each of our times to leave this earth, I am hoping we each will have put our stash of materials, threads and notions to a far better use than compared with some relative's desire to dumpster all those items. Hearing someone has those kinds of plans makes me almost panic. Hoping you will live long enough, to stitch the very last piece of material yourself. Not sure that would even be a possibility for some of the stashes I have heard about, but it sure would be fun to try. Thank you for sharing another great project. It is wonderful when we can create and give to someone who genuinely appreciates the gift.
Wonderful design for a young person and the colours blend so well. You are so very clever Martine. Love Chris
Sew nice! "Drew the pattern on the go", I can only wish. I've done a few simple things without patterns, with only so-so results. I'm very impressed with your sleeves and collar.
I just love it and your sewing. I am afraid I still don't know how to hem on mine. How do you set your machine? I am sure the first thing is to disengage the knife/cutter......
Toogie I am in a luxury position, I have a separate coverlock machine (a Brother). Which does a great job on these hems. The seams were done using the serger, the zip, attaching the pocket and topstitching on the sewing machine" Quite a lot of machines for this project. I must confess the coverlocker mostly resides in a cabinet, which makes me feel a bit guilty, but when I use it it does a good job.
I'm not familiar with a cover locker . How is it different from a serger?
I too have many machines......
You did a great job, I with you I need to reduce my stach also.
A great way to use some fabric up
I think that there is a song bout "Wonder Woman". Do you wear a cape?
Very nicely put together - matching stripes and everything!
One side has a few mm's shift - did my children complain in the past about stripes not matching exactly. And next blouse they bought did not match at all. When I dared make a remark about that they said I knew and could do better...
As my son now frequently says: You get so much in return. :)
Your sewing skills are awesome and the stash reduction as well.
Thank you. The stash does not reduce visibly, so I'll have to go on to make a dent :)
Beautiful job...you are so very talented and especially to be able to make up the pattern on the fly!
Creative and resourceful and productive...just a few words to describe what you share with us! Amazing, too!
Thank you, you make me blush.
OMG, Martine, this could be sold in an upscale boutique, it is gorgeous and so comfy looking.......I so envy you sew'ers........
Thank you. If I did not know how busy you are I would say give it a go and you'll be surprised. I envy your knitting - maybe not the ability but certainly your speed!
Another victory against the dumpster our children threaten us with. You have a great stash!
So do mine! But I'll have a long way to go to beat them to it!
You really have talent! The inserts etc. are just like the items being sold in stores here. Excellent work!
I have been sewing for as long as I can remember, so experience comes into the equation, and a bit of dare-do. And do I love my serger and coverlock. The latter gives such professional hems, much nicer than a twin needle.
