Sewing progress

Oops, I was supposed to sort the sleeve in the lime blouse before I got into anything new - bad Ruthie.

It's so long since I made the blouse (a whole month) that I had sort of forgotten about it.

I will hang it from the shelving in the sewing room as a big hint that I need to sort it out. Then I can actually wear it which will be wonderful.

The problem with the sleeves is that they are too big for the armhole and I have lots of puckers, so I need to remove them, trim them down slightly and reinsert them smoothly (ie not a single pucker).

The PJ pants are almost done, though will need a press as the serger thread is pulling rather - perhaps a tension problem?

I'll also need to get to grips with my Coverstitch machine. I bought it online and have never seen it demo'd and so have not really used it. The once I tried it unthreaded itself and after that I was stuck.

Not many of us that have purchased our Coverstitch machines have seen them demoed. Check out the great threads a Pattern Review http://sewing.patternreview.com/SewingDiscussions/forum/43

That's how I got started.
