In the meantime, I've made this:
And this, the dress from my last post:
And some nice bright stripes and printed batik, with pockets incorporated into the princess seams and stencilled jacks, just for fun. Like it wasn't a fun dress already.
And I added the shark to this shirt which has been returned from Miracle having sat there unsold for quite a while.
I used today's bright sunshine to get most of these photos taken, and since I did I was able to put off the last detail needed on this coat. Keyhole buttonholes. Making them on scraps of denim is one thing. Making them on a garment which I hope one day to sell is something else. Somebody (sorry I didn't respond then, I tend to get a little distracted) asked about using a buttonholer on zig zag machines. It's even better - it'll work on straight stitch machines! I guess these type of attachments were developed in the days when machines pretty much only did a straight stitch.
