Moving Days?

I bet you think that because the moving company is packing us up to move to Canada that I’d have been frantically clearing out on the weekend, right? Well we were but of course there were some last minute sewing projects to finish! Moyna, my lovely apparel guru, came back on Friday and I finished up a custom corduroy skirt. Didn’t have enough material to do a waistband so did a facing with lining. Also, we experimented with a lapped zip which you normally wouldn’t do with this type of waist but it worked out fine…

Oil cloth is a bit sticky to sew with, to say the least, so I took some internet advice and used masking tape on the foot. It helped a lot I think. I also tried putting tape directly on the area I wanted to sew and then pulled it off afterwards, that worked too…

Packing in full swing now and I’ve had to say goodbye to my extraordinarily lovely UK sewing room…
