refashion this

Once upon a time there were two jumpsuits.

Those jumpsuits reconnected with their dear friends, Ms. Sew-a-Lot and Ms. Hemmingway, after a time apart.

Ok, let’s get serious now πŸ˜’

I love the polished look a serger gives to handmade clothing. So I was ready to put my fabric in it but the seam width dial got stuck and I couldn’t get it to move.

So I just did the zig-zag stitch and moved on.

The Roscoe pattern is really simple to make. Proof that we don’t need crazy patterns to make beautiful pieces of clothing.

When I got to the part where I needed to sew around the neckline to gather the fabric, I chose to hand sew instead of using the machine. Everytime I sew with the machine and pull the thread, the thread breaks.

Hand-sewed seam to gather the fabric

I followed every step of the pattern instructions and I’m really happy with the result.

I can’t wait for those spring days

I liked this blouse so much that I decided to make one for my mother’s.

For me, I don’t mind if I look inside the blouse and see zig-zag stitch. But for mom’s I didn’t want that. I needed my serger back.

My husband was able to get the jammed dial to rotate again. Though I’m pretty sure I was the one who relieved the pressure.

Don’t you dare to move

After a quick yet joyful sewing session this was the result:

Oh, spring time πŸ₯°

I’m not done with the Roscoe pattern. I want to make the longer version of the dress. I just need fabric!!

I need fabric SO BAD!!
