My new nightdress. Formerly a linen shirt belonging to my husband. I’ve been hanging on to the shirt for ages but now seemed like the right time to use it.
I’ve extended it with a leftover piece of linen table cloth. Both fabrics are very soft after long years of laundry. I bought the lace trim to try to tie it all together and make it look more feminine. I’ve replaced the plastic buttons with shell buttons.
I’ve got a fair size collection of shell buttons taken off old clothes, found in charity shops or donated by kind friends.
It’s been an interesting project for my “new” machine
I did French seams to avoid having to start on the zigzag attachment yet. And I put a lot of the trim on by hand because I couldn’t get past the lack of a free arm.
Any advice on how to cope without the free arm please let me know.
Next time’s project has to use the zigzag attachment. It doesn’t have instructions so I’ll need to do some research. Maybe YouTube?
I’m pleased with it though.
Thanks for dropping by.
Enjoy your week
