I've overlocked all the edges on my lining fabric, ready for my Abbey coat. I wasn't sure of the sewing etiquette for finishing edges on fabric that will be enclosed, so I've made up my own rules :
If the fabric frays whilst you're handling it, then it's probably sensible to finish the edges.
If the fabric behaves itself and doesn't seem to fray much, then leave it.
My wool is perfectly behaved so I've left it alone, my lining fabric, although not as badly behaved as some I could mention, still frays and sheds fibres everywhere, so all edges were overlocked to within an inch of their life.
What else have I been up to this morning? Oh yes, (she said casually), I made five bound buttonholes.....
|The light was playing tricks today, the actual colour is more green than blue|
And just as my day couldn't possible get any better, look what arrived through my letterbox this morning.
Happy Thursday everybody. x
