Caitlin's long awaited blouse
In my past post on this blouse, I wrote how terrified I was to sew this fabric and to use the new Bernina machine.... Fear no more the machine, or the paper thin silk organza fabric. I finished it!! It fits her perfect and I think she looks cute in it. I really don't know what my problem was. There were some tricky bits to it though, like the piping on the neck line and other small details, but the worst were the hemming of the sleeves. It was such a full circle, that it was not wanting to be folded under. I managed to make it look OK, but not as perfect as I would like. I have now fallen in love with this machine,and I'm on to new adventures with it.
