In the wardrobe / Top stitching thread for denim.
« on: Today at 15:01:38 »
I’m about to cut out a denim pinafore dress and want to top stitch it in gold/yellow.

There is no thread in the stash that is suitable and as I am self isolating it will have to be bought over t’interweb.

Has anybody got any that they could check the number of.  I usually use Gutermann thread but anything I can get on line would be fine.

Most satisfying job of the day so far, clearing the paper jam in my shredder.

Careful @Bodgeitandscarper , it was thinking about cleaning windows that sent me into my current paralysis.

Windows are my worst nightmare. Some people seem to have the knack, I don’t. Mine usually look worse when I’ve done them than before, I can never get them streak free.

Happy Birthday to you both, hope you have lovely days.

Technical Help / Re: Stretchable Flat Felled Seams / Reversible Jumper

Hi Lalu, sewing a sleeve with a flat fell seam is easy, you attach the sleeve flat before you do the side seams and then stitch the sleeve and side seams in one pass.

I’ve never tried a flat fell sea with a knit but it should be possible. How stable is the knit fabric?  A really stretchy fabric will be harder to sew.

It’s worth a try, let us know how you get on.

If she can stitch clouds like that she can stitch quilt binding. Both projects are lovely.
