First sewing project of 2015
I was given some lengths of cloth for Christmas one of which was just right for a blouse pattern I have been saving. This was a free pattern on a magazine from an "Indie" (independent) designer ie not one of the main sewing pattern suppliers. I am adapting it a bit, shortening the sleeves and losing the bow tie! The sewing method was new to me - so I am experimenting! In this method you overlock or zigzag the edges before sewing the seams which are 1cm wide. In my old fashioned methods I would have used french seams. Will be interesting to see how this works out.
