Bodge, I let not so nice fabric marinate in the stash until an idea pops up.

Cat has decided it's hibernation time, so if I sit down, he is on my lap, and if I lie down, then it's a warm mattress tummy, right??

I haven't seen these, but if they are original dress copies, beware that they had very tight armholes.

Can your wife post her sewing requirements?

Technical Help / Help please- tunnelled waistband anyone
« on: October 04, 2019, 15:04:13 PM »
This is a tailor trouser waistband,  with a flat front and an adjustable elastic back. The elastic is not sewn in- it is covered. It comes out at side slits and the ends are covered by pieces of the fabric. The elastic has a buttonhole at each side. The front has two buttons at each side, depending on how big a dinner the gentleman had eaten!
I suppose I can figure this out for myself, but does anyone know an easy way?

 I like the look of a lot of these patterns, but I don't have that exciting lifestyle.

Don't know if this helps, but I usually cut my way out.

Off to Cribbs Mall for new clothes (maybe).
Thinking of you Manuela.

Off out to buy antihistamines - when everywhere I go smells of sweaty feet, then I am in for a bout of hayfever. The Russian vine is the current nuisance.

I tried a honeycomb stitch to hem a fairly stable knit, when I was tempted by a coverstitch machine. It was good. (Thank you, ejvc).

I have some crepe navy I am thinking for trousers. It was bought a long time ago, and might also be a mix.
