No, the title of this post isn’t some sort of personal disclosure. It’s how I feel about my sewing machine. You see, one of the ‘selling points’ of my sewing machine is all the feet that came with it (and all the variety of stitches, but that’s a whole different post!). One of my favorite is the narrow hem foot. I worked on my tank a bit more yesterday – it requires a narrow hem on each of the layers of the top. If I didn’t have this foot, I probably would have given up on this fabric since it’s the type that just doesn’t want to cooperate.
However, with the narrow hem foot – I was able to finish off the edge of each layer fairly quickly and without any problems! If your machine doesn’t come with this foot, I highly recommend getting one – it sure does make sewing easier!
As for the tank progress – I still have lots more to go. What’s left: attaching the bow and both layers to the bodice as well as inserting the zipper, whew!
Today’s must read: Dress A Day’s post on “How To Buy Fabric” – I even sent it to Bret since Erin summed it up so perfectly!
