Last night my husband and I returned home from a weekend trip to Bergen. Bergen is the second largest city in Norway. It is “sea port” town. Traditionally life has been centered on trade and the ocean. It is surrounded by lots of mountains, a very scenic area.
I don’t think many people carry a sewing machine and serger when they go to a hotel. I got some interested glances as I carried my “equipment” to our room.
I brought a couple of outfits I have been working with for my son’s girlfriend. She is always cold, so I knitted some wool yarn on my knitting machine and used my hoodie pattern Kwik Sew 2993 and sewed her a nice warm, underlined wool jacket for winter.
The second project was Vogue 8648 , my project for the craftsy class “The Couture Dress”. You might remember I have had some problems with this dress. See my earlier post (listed bellow). After watching another Craftsy.com course “Adjust the Bust” by Kathleen Cheetham, I realized what my mistake was. I had shifted the bust point of the pattern by moving the seam of the center front too far in. I took the seam apart, moved it out and, IT SOLVED MY PROBLEM”. I am so happy, because I am now ready to add the silk lining.
