What are you most proud of? I'm very thankful to Jesus - who gives me the creativity, resources & ability to make lovely dresses for my little granddaughters! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure your pleats are even, put a lightweight, fusible stabilizer on the wrong side of the fabrics, and sew the decorative stitches on the wrong side. My Baby Lock Sewing Machine came with a bobbin designed to accommodate heavy threads & yarn. Ordinary bobbins can work if you loosen the tension on the bobbin case. Generally speaking, I don't like to mess with the tension on the bobbin. If you plan to do a lot of bobbin work, I would suggest getting a second bobbin case that can be set to the looser tension.
