    Beautiful! I have also used my sewing machine to make Alabama Chanin garments with the reverse appliqué and stitched the seams wrong sides together for the exposed seam look………. :-)

      Thanks, Tessi! Yeah, I’m planning on doing the reverse stitching with some nice organic cotton fabric I just picked up. Didn’t work for this one sided material.

    Beautiful. I have bought the Alabama Chanin books and wondered if you could use the sewing machine. Thanks for answering my question.

      Yes, you certainly can. The patterns are simple but very classic & elegant. Fine details by hand to follow ;)
