and then to this...
Yes, the head is cut off deliberately... it is the DRESS you are looking at, not me!
Oh, all right then- I will admit to being me!
and just for good measure, the next couple of shots are what goes on after midnight, when your self timer on the camera is maximum 10 seconds!
For the record, I cut most of the fabric out, all bar the black sections, on Friday night, and worked on Saturday 'morning', so after I had had lunch, I started sewing. There is an invisible zip in there, but I do not have an invisible zip foot, so I checked out the Burda tutorial for fitting one with the wrong foot- hey, it worked!!! and that took some time, I took a break for supper of about two hours-ish, and I finished sewing about ten past midnight. I reckon I took 6 1/2 hours to complete it, down to hems and everything.
I used my walking foot for a lot of the seams, and also my overlocker, ( serger for the American element) so most seams are sewn twice.
On that showing, I reckon GBSB is safe from me, don't you?
but the walking foot was a dream for sewing the jersey fabric. and I would definitely use it again!
