Happiness is when the length between the length/short line, and the waistline is the same one inch you need to adjust. 😊 #sewing #simplicity1534
Treated myself to a few things from #simplicitypatterns . A tea towel (made of light scratchy fabric), and a sewing planner. Video of planner at second swipe.
Hm. This could explain why we Americans have a 5/8 seam allowance on patterns. #metricsystemrules #vintagepattern #simplicity1534 #sewing #sewingpatterns
Let the #frankenpattern begin! I start by measuring the waistline, and subtracting the darts between the 5/8 seam allowance. Spreadsheet maths tells me this size 14 pattern has a 1 ease, and how much I need to adjust each piece to fit my 31 cinched waist. #simplicity1534
Went on a #1950s #vintagesewingpatterns shopping spree. Gonna #mrsmaisel the heck out of my wardrobe, and got a couple for the #1940s hangar party in May. I may have to size up most of them, so expect many #frankenpattern pics in a couple of weeks.
Had to pause playback to tell you Viceroy's House is on Netflix.
Thanks for making my first year on Instagram so much fun. Wishing you a healthy, happy, and creative new year. #best92017
Video of the motor in action! I bought the 1amp motor on eBay for $17.60 plus $6.50 shipping. Comes with motor, pedal, cords, belt, and screws. Look at her go!
Water decals are easy to work with if you use MicroSet and MicroSol. Start at the back right end (under the wheel). Use warm water to soak the decals. Add as much MicroSet as you need to move decal around, but once MicroSol is applied to the decal there is no going back. It turns the film into wet tissue paper that will tear and curl as soon as you touch it. I had to order another set of decals because I learned this the hard way.
