I am trying to get over my weirdness regarding my serger.
So on Tuesday, I made up this little outfit for Ahnalin.
Leggings pattern was from an old Ottobre , Winter 2007.
And the dress was just something I drafted based on her measurements.
She LOVES these leggings and play dress outfits and they really are
a breeze to sew. But this time I sewed nearly the whole thing on my serger.
The polka dot fabric is a yummy cotton lycra knit I ordered on line from Chez Ami.
The cherry hearts knit was something I bought from a friend on Sewing Mamas.
Yes, she insisted on posing next to the Chinese lantern statue thingy in our garden.
So, the outfit "plays" well.
She refuses to wear jeans and wants to wear dresses
every day. So, the legging/play dress option really is the best for her.
Oh, and notice the snow is melting! Wahooooooo!!
Just a little bit left but she can still ride her bike.
My only frustration right now, regarding my serger, is that it needs a tune-up.
So, when I get paid from my next sewing job, I will take the serger into the shop.
NOT THE SAME SHOP THAT KEPT MY JANOME FOR 6 MONTHS!!!!
No, this time I will take it to a local lady who works out of her home.
She is the one who taught the class I attended on Saturday.
I need the tensions all recalibrated.
The rolled hem that I did on the bottom of the leggings has already come out partially!
And the serger is running too slow.
But other than that, the seams are nice and even.
I sewed another pair of leggings and a long sleeve top last night. I will post them as soon as I get the jumper done that she will wear on top.
Melissa's sofa is still in progress but our schedules have been crazy.
Next week I hope to get more done on that and will hopefully show you a finished slipcovered sofa.
Now, if only my sinus headache would go away so I could see straight, I hope to
get more sewing done today.
