Selfless Sewing …

I finally have my overlocker back, after two trips to the sewing machine repair shop, all is finally well.  It turned out that the stitch finger had bent, and then it broke off when the repair man tried to straighten it.  So I have a new plate.  Tension problems have been traced and rectified, and the presser foot has been screwed back on properly.

So this afternoon I hammered out two skirts and a top for my mum.  Selfless, that’s me. The top is another Maria Denmark Kirsten, this time with elbow length sleeves.  The skirt is a simple elasticated stretch knit affair, with a nice lettuced hem; mum’s favourite style of skirt.  Times two

Tomorrow, I’ll sew something for myself 🙂

Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend!

    Well, naturally, I think so!
    I’m sure she would have her own view 🙂

    looking good!
    are you going to make that style of tee for yourself in the original short sleeve version?

    Thanks Helen. I actually made this t for myself last year, or perhaps it was the year before, in the largest size available at the time (XL) but it was way too small. I don’t know if she has expanded the size range. It might fit me better now I have lost weight.
