A while ago I purchased this wee sewing machine from John Lewis and i couldn’t be happier! It’s light enough to save me carrying my Brother machine to class and back and and it fits neatly into my bag too.
This morning I was practising making button holes for my skirt. Since the JL mini doesn’t come with fancy attachments I quite literally just drew a line with chalk on some scrap material and sewed round it in a rectangular shape. I was quite happy it turned out pretty well even if i say so myself and saved myself a few bob plus a trip up to the attic/hobby room where my Brother machine is stored.
Now here comes the nerve-wracking part – sewing on the actual pattern piece. I’m just going to go slowly on that part as I really would like a neat finish!
For the skirt, I’m using easy pattern and I’ve picked “skirt A” with pockets. It’s been fairly straight forward, mind you the pockets were a bit of a drama as the instructions should be a little clearer. I’m using the lovely hydrangea cotton fabric, designed by Fabric Freedom, leftover from the “Dahlia” dress.
