I am finally sewing real seams! There has been so much prep work with this project, I was beginning to think I might be working on this in July. That is a tad dramatic…having a couple of Saturdays without major events got me back in my sewing room, and making some real headway. Have I mentioned how much I love working with wool? Amazing stuff! Pressing seams is so satisfying because they behave so well; no springing back and causing trouble. I love it!
My first pocket is looking great….that is until I started to attach it to the side seam. I have four layers of worsted here, and I’m feeling quite humbled at the moment. That, and the need to work on wedding gifts has stopped me in my tracks. First I considered that maybe I needed to sew the facings, separate, but now I’m thinking I need to stick with my original plan so sewing through all thicknesses.
I have scowered the Internet looking for any instructions for a similar pocket application, and I’m finding nothing. I guess I’ll think about a few more days before I try anything. If anyone has ideas, I am all ears!
