Hi everyone! I’ve been plugging in search terms for forums, discussion boards, blogs etc…to find help and I finally (thankfully) came across this site!
I’m a newbie to sewing and have a couple projects under my belt. Nothing too substantial yet.
Today, I was working on a camera bag and had a complete memory lapse as to which side (needle vs. bobbin) is the “top”. Unfortunately, I was concentrating so hard on following the pattern that my mental block didn’t really surface until I was just about finished w/my project and was working on the final stitches.
After thinking and researching, I reaffirmed my initial thought in that the topstitch is on the needle side…right?
For some reason, my machine (Brother CE5500PRW) seems like it’s sewing the topstitch on the underside of the fabric. Tension is set at 4. I’ve rethreaded both the needle and bobbin several times and I end up w/a sloppy mess that doesn’t look at all like the type of stitch I selected on the top and the bottom looks like what the topstitch should be.
I have pictures if that helps, but can’t seem to figure out how to post on here. :-(
Thank you in advance for any advice you may have!
I would spread the hemline wider then the neckline though as it doesn’t look too gather…
Hi, boning would be good. You have a zip on the side so you only need boning in the sea…
Usually the facings need to be sewn together before the facing is sewn onto the garment…
There’s a burda member here that does that. Her profile is called sassy. it’s a picture…
If you pop up a window to the dress it will be easier to find :)
