As you saw in the last post I have started sewing together NL6808 and keeping with my schedule that I made, I got the beignet skirt cut out. I’m using red twill from fabric.com, I didn’t get the fabric until tuesday so I couldn’t have it cut out last week. The twill is so lovely and lightweight, I decided not to line this beignet. I’ll serge the insides and also leave off the pockets. I do love a nice pocket but I want to see if the skirt has a more slimming look without the pocket bulge. I might serge this before I do the new look blouse because this fabric was only $4.98/ yd and I have plenty left to cut out new pieces, and the AMH voile was bunches more expensive and I only have a little bit left (that I’d like to save for something else!)
Serger class starts tomorrow! I’m very excite to finally learn how to use this wacko machine. I picked it up from my parents’ house a few weeks ago but I forgot the power cord/pedal. So last night I called home and asked my mom to grab it for me so I could pick it up Friday afternoon before the class…it wasn’t there! So my mom and I have spent the last day going through our respective dwellings searching for this pedal/cord and neither one of us found it. Tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn (which is 8 am to me) I’ll be calling a local sewing parts warehouse to see if I can pick it up there. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Posting may be a little slow next week as I have 3 tests and engagement party #2, hopefully I’ll have some pictures from Serger 101 to share!
