Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Vogue 8853 Link to website or photo voguepatterns.mccall.com/v8853-products-44613.php?page_id=866&search_control=display&list=search What are you most proud of? Making a fun, funky top for less than $20, and "making it work." What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sliver is a fun topstitching thread, but it is notoriously tricky to work with since it stretches and breaks! It's like sewing with cellophane. There are special home sewing machine needles that help, but they don't exist (as far as I know) for my commercial machine, so I used it in the bobbin. The silver did not break once! An edge stitching foot makes topstitiching fast and accurate, too.

What you will need

  • Rayon challis
  • Silver Sliver topstitsching thread.

Q&A with Barbara Deckert

Kuby asked:
Beautiful top! Did you hand wind the bobbin?
Barbara Deckert answered:
No. It wound fine on the machine.
