Thanks for the kind comments. It is sloppy. I tend to be a perfectionist, so sometimes just making something quick is good for me - no one in the family this goes to will notice it is any different from the other outfits! (Notice I have not shown you a close up- the stitch in ditch foot is very good, but the learning curve is a little steep for curved seams)
Lyra I don't get Sew Beautiful regularly. It is very expensive here. However, when I go to a big town, and it is in the newsagent, I always have a good look, and usually end up buying one! I love featherstitching, and used a lot of it on my son's clothes when he was a baby, because bullion roses just did not look right on a boy
. I used it so much that my Mum said to me - the featherstitch on your machine is very good, much better than mine, which was really funny, and a bit dispiriting, because it was all done by hand. Imperfection is a good thing! However, not having done any for a few years, I have lost the knack. I will have to look out for the current issue of Sew Beautiful for a few tips.
