The one hour dress!

Posted By Lena Kantis On 30 September, 2011 @ 09:22 In Design Collection,Embroidery,Inspiration | 6 Comments

To have an overlock machine is the best thing in the world, that is because it is faboulous to create quick projects. I made a dress out of a knitted fabric (second fabric from Stockholm) within an hour. I used the Husqvarna Viking® Huskylock s15 [1]for the construction. My daughter took the picture of me in the finished dress, and she told me to make a fun look, so I did!


A skirt is what I am sewing on today. It is a terracotta colored fabric, and I am lucky as I did also get to try out the new Husqvarna Viking® Embroidery design collection # 243, Handlook Needlework II.


I  did work with several  kinds of threads but if you want to have the “thicker” look of the stitches you should of course select to have the 30 weight cotton (or Rayon) thread. I will finish the skirt during the weekend.


I did also embroider one more 5D Card, using the Husqvarna Viking® 5D™ CARD SHOP [5]to send to the United Kingdom.  I used the monochrome linear, which is one of my favorit features. I think it does look astonishing!


Greetings to all, and have a Happy Sewing!
