Last week we got the first snow! It didn’t stay for long, but made as all aware of the coming, winter season. Time to make sure we have winter tires on our cars, hats, gloves, and winter coats for the whole family.

I sewed a second dress using the same pattern as you saw last week. This time I used a heavy knit. The fabric is looking like it has been hand knitted. I wanted to use the HUSQVARNA VIKING® HUSKYLOCK™ S25 overlock to sew it, but found out that it was very difficult to sew as it was almost too heavy to feed the fabric into the overlock. I solved it by using a cotton ribbon, and added that in the seam. There is a small hole on the front of the standard presserfoot, which is meant to be used for adding ribbons in the seam. I added the ribbon on the shoulder seams, and on halfway down on the side seams. It made a big difference, as the ribbon makes it much easier to feed through and more stable. (Also on the HUSQVARNA VIKING® HUSKYLOCK™ S21 and S15 standard foot you can add a ribbon in the same way.)

Here is the fabric, the ribbon and how to apply the ribbon while sewing.

Here is my second dress:

I will need to sew some more outfits as I will be out travelling soon. I have been looking at a new HUSQVARNA VIKING ® Design Collection # 228, “Cutwork Tecniques”. Wonderful three-dimensional cutwork embroideries, I love the new Tip- Embellish your embroideries with the cut outs for a 3D Effect. I simply have to try, I’m “sew” excited.

 wish you will all have a great Halloween weekend!

Happy Sewing
