This is the first time for a sewing project in a few weeks. However, I haven't been absent from the sewing world. I purchased two vintage machines. I have been busy oiling, cleaning, researching, and adjusting them.
The first one is a Free-Westinghouse model 52f. It uses a vibrating-shuttle. I have been wanting a vibrating-shuttle machine to play with, and I like this one very much.
The second is a Singer 404. I have been wanting a 404 for a while, and this pristine example came along.
I will blog about them in the future. The blog for today is about some lounge(pajama) pants for Joe using McCalls 5511 for the pattern.
I am making them with some soft cotton-blend material I bought at the thrift store. I am using my Brother machine and Pfaff serger. I used both flat-fell and serged seams. All they need now is the elastic-casing, elastic and to be hemmed. I'll need to take a few measurements of Joe and then I will be able to finish them.
Here is a peak at them.
Here is the team used today.
Thanks for stopping.
