How to hem a bias ruffle edge.
I've had some failures...big time. And because of those failures, I nearly ditched an entire project.
Then a light bulb lit. The heavens opened...a chorus of angels sang, "Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!"
My sewing machine feet! I remembered somewhere, in the back of my obsessed mind, that my machine does overlock edge stitching, and that there just may be a special presser foot for that purpose.
See that? That is an overedge foot. And it's been living in my sewing room for two years....sort of like a guest...you're glad to have one around, but they don't really do any work. It's designed to fold and roll your fabric and overedge stitch all on it's own! Who knew?
So got out the book, I practiced for two days, and finally took the plunge on that bias ruffle edge.
And by golly, it works! So while it's not a Merrow edge, it sure does the trick for me!
So, My Cabi reproduction blouse is well on it's way to being completed. And I've learned something new.
