but a dressmaker as well. I use to make every scrap of clothes for my family, including undies! Since I started serious quilting, I have hardly made a scrap of clothing, and almost forgot some of the basics.
I had an idea about making a shirt of patchwork fabrics, and teamed up 5 different prints from Moda. The fabric is beautiful to work with, and it drapes really nicely.
It is not totally finished yet. I need to sew down the collar stand, and work on the button holes. In the past I have made button holes manually on my old Bernina machine. I have not done any serious dressmaking since I have had the new Bernina 230. According to the instruction book there are about 3 different ways to do them, and there is a fancy attachment as well. I will have to do lots of practice I think to see how it all works.
Bright, isn't it? You will see me coming in it. I just chose fabrics I liked, not bothering about where they would be placed. Nearly forgot - there is a pocket to go on LHS as well, so that might break it up a bit.
