At last I have completed the summer collection. This is the final piece; a light weight jacket made from a crinkled blue and white cotton and heavily topstitched. The pattern I used was “By Popular Demand” from the Cutting Line Design range. I had been concentrating on these patterns to create a relaxed mix ‘n’ Match Simple Summer collection that I posted about earlier. I have sewn 3x shells , 2x skirts and a Relax Little Vest.
This was the most complex/time consuming piece because of the topstitching and changing of the thread…..so I set up my old machine with the topstitching thread and swapped back and forth. Relatively easy to sew and tried out my new ‘button sew-on foot’ which made sewing on the buttons (with the machine) a little easier.
