Got another maternity dress and a maternity tunic done for my client (www.julesfordmaternity.com) just in time for her to swing by on her way home from the L.A. garment district. While I was busy packaging up the two garments, my Sewing Assistant got busy getting to know her 11 month old son. That was a riot - Neko had never seen a human that was his size before, crawling on the floor. They were both really curious about each other, and then they mutually decided that a (slow) game of tag was just the ticket to celebrate making new friends. His mother and I were laughing so much that I forgot to go get the camera. Ah, well....with my sadly incompetent photographic skills, the most you would have seen was a blur, similar to this:
|The Sewing Assistant, racing to his next assignment.|
Apparently making a comment on my photo skills.
Or lack of.
The dress for today you've seen before. The tunic I sent her home with was this one:
|This is called a Lulu tunic. Name seems fitting.|
|What the.....HEY! Someone got my dressform pregnant!|
The Sewing Assistant has a lot of 'splaining to do!
|Narrow hem! Way better than the narrow hem foot on my machine does it -|
that often leaves part of the raw edge hanging out - this method is more
time-consuming but leaves a much better finished edge.
Here is a tutorial on using the narrow hem foot for your machine:
Personally, I've been using them for years and STILL haven't mastered them.
Maybe next time....
