Sure, I've made it of wool, but spring is a bit cold here too, eh?
Now, I love this book...
(not just because it's a great reference full of stuff I don't know, but partly for it's 1970s content, and because I actually kinda want to make a room full of foam furniture,
but not so much this hat),
|Prepping for Blind Hem|
Fortunately, the first couple of searches worked, and I now have something in the way of a blind hem on my new skirt! I didn't use a special foot or anything (just the zig-zag one), and it seems to have gone OK except that I should have relaxed the needle thread tension back to what I had it on for straight stitching. I had guessed at tension to be what I had used for zig-zags, but it caused a bit of a pucker.
A bit of tugging, smoothing by hand, and pressing with steam made it look alright in the end, and I suspect wearing it and or washing it (as one washes woolens, of course!) will make it all turn out fine.
Just a bit of hand-stitching to go today, and I hope to wear it tonight to the Wolfe Tones Quiz Night!
