Day Off

NL 6898: Sewed in sleeves – flat. Tested edge finishes on serger; nothing worked. Tried turning and stitching, but it wasn’t neat enough. Lycra binding is the next option.

Went to the local Joann’s. Did they have black lycra seam binding? NO!!! I decided to try lace seam tape. It’s almost invisible, and it has produced a much nicer finish than the lycra binding.

While I was there I bought
2.875 yards of embroidered denim $9.33
5 yards of navy cotton lycra twill $9.89
12 yards of 3/4″ no roll elastic $11.56
1/2 yard of black bear “fur” $1.71
3 Vogue patterns $14.80
3 packages of flexilace seam tape $4.51
3 yards of navy cotton thermal knit $ 9.74

NL6898: hemmed sleeves, sewed sides, sewed tape to bottom, front and neck.
NL6143D: I’m a size L; traced front and back pattern pieces.
KS2946: finished snaps.
