I have been working on my Vogue 8842. First thing I did was to wash the material. I wasn't sure if I should because it is half wool and half polyester. To my surprise, it came out of the dryer even more soft and luxurious. There was a big ball of lint in the filter however.
I am sewing this with my Kenmore 100 stitch.
My welt pockets turned out quite well. If you recall, I added the welt pockets, this pattern did not call for them. Also, I made more of a regular collar. The pattern used a single piece of material with the lining on the inside. I didn't think I would like that.
The outer shell is almost done. The only thing left are the cuffs. Then I will start on the lining.
In other news:
I purchased a Bernina 530 sewing machine. It is a cute machine with knee operation instead of a foot pedal. Here it is next to my 731.
That is it for now.
Thanks for stopping.
