A Sewing DisasterI've just tried out McCall's 7130 skirt pattern, Size L. All went very well until I pinned it together, then it started to stretch bigger, and bigger. I think it had ended up more like a XL. Otherwise it's a great pattern and I'd use it again definitely.
What a surprise for me I made most of the skirt on my Elna 745 overlocker with no problems at all..In fact it was a dream to sew with.
|Finished skirt hanging on the line looks more like a coffee sack and not really|
true to colour...it's much brighter.
So much for my three thread cover-pro. By the way I have never ever had success with using 3-thread stitch on the Janome the thread always breaks. What a mess my hem became, it was it was just plain ugly and chewed up... Don't you hate that?
|What a mess! No I'm not unpicking it, much too hard to do...I'll have|
to cut it off!
|The finished hem...and a plain stretch stitch hem using the Juki on another|
skirt. The other skirt look much better. I knew I should have just used a
plain stretch stitch and not bothered with the Janome Cover-pro.
|Behaving themselves for once...they love to be where I am, just watching.|
|Perfect! Do you find that when you set your machine up to sew in a couple of|
days/ Then when you use it, it seems like Gremlins have been at it and all the
tensions are changed. The numbers no longer work...
