I also bought some of the Sour Apple Green and I really like the feel of this fabric. Orginally I was thinking about a sporty outfit with pants. But I am still working on the red slinky dress. Luckily I had enough fabric to re-cut the top pieces and try again. So far so good since I tweaked the directions that were not working for me before.
A triple layer of this fabric due to the "narrow hem" plus a seam allowance with elastic inserted will NOT go under my presser foot. Hence the direction tweaking.
Also, I have ordered a gathering foot and hope that it arrives soon. I noticed another blogger purchased one and fell in love with it. OOOOhh, and there is an Estate Sale in my town tomorrow--with fabric and yarn!
I leave you today with 3 photos of Dog 1 and Dog 2 in the sewing room. Notice the great drafting table that was given to my honey. It is the perfect height and width for a cutting table. Yep, oak drafting table-FREE!
