      Thank you Mary for the lovely comment ! I’m sure you still are good at top stitching you’re sewing constantly.
      Btw Tom did half the top stitching, he’s really good at it.

      No , he still needs my help, but he’s good at cutting out the pattern , scared of zippers, but he made this one except the top stitching, curves are not he’s cup of tea. He also shortened the zipper, took out the teeth with pliers and put back the stoppers.
      Yes Mary, I agree, there’s quite a few men sewers on this site, and they are great.

    Sometimes I like to use those finger protectors, so I don’t burn them with the hot steam.
