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 😒
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.
I followed every step of the pattern instructions and I’m really happy with the result.
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.
After a quick yet joyful sewing session this was the result:
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!!
