Embroidery, knitting, sewing, spinning, weaving…

Adding finishing touches to my daughter’s dress…


I’m thrilled to say that my daughter’s dress ensemble is finished.

I used my Coverstitch machine to finish the hem. I’m sewing through the fabric and horsehair braid.

I decided to secure the hem (where the horsehair braid is attached) with my Brother 2340 CV Coverstitch machine. I love this machine!

Understitch- stitching close to the seam on the lining/facing side of the fabric.

The bodice has a lining and I decided it would be a good idea to understitch on the lining/facing side of the fabric.

I can’t wait to show you an up close and personal look at my daughter’s outfit, but I can’t right now since she’s at our Lutheran Church’s Middle School dance. I will say that she was all smiles when the outfit was completed.
