Some fabrics speak to you and tell you what they want done with them. This one didn’t want facings, nor ribbing for edges. Just a simple trim in the same colour of the main wool

Mechanically speaking, fellow seamstresses may be interested in the ease and beauty of buttonholes made on a machine with a 9mm stitch width. Making the keyhole buttonholes was a pleasure with the 9mm stitch width. Nonetheless, a 5.5mm stitch width machine was necessary to apply the woollen trim in an even manner. The narrower feed dogs and foot are simply more maneuvreable and allow for more control. Tell me what you think about the two. … And when you count the overlocker as well for side seams, shoulder seams and finishing the raw edges (before applying the trim), that makes 3 machines to pull this ‘simple’ looking garment off.
