To clarify today’s earlier post, the above is what I’m curious about: when you’ve reached the bottom of attaching your lining to your zip placement and you have to bring the two back skirt seams together at the bottom. Do you just leave a gap in the handstitched sides and start the seam that continues down? Or is there something I’m missing? Something more … sophisticated? Maybe not. Who knows. I don’t!
‘Why are you holding a seam ripper, Karen?’ Well, I’ve been blogging about irons. That produce heat. Hot heat. Temperatures that burn things. I decided to gently press my inserted lining tonight. I looked at the iron – saw that it had last been used at full blast. Turn it down, I told myself. Duly did so. Then I GAVE THE IRON 0.5 SECONDS TO COOL. That’ll do, I thought. No, actually. I wasn’t thinking at all. Just picked the iron up and started using it. This happened:
Inserted Lining, Now Scorched
Thank the God of Sewing, this is a section that I can rip out. Plus, I have enough lining fabric to replace it. There’s a reason why we should always order an extra half a metre of fabric.
Because if a person sews when she has a cold, she’s a b****y idiot!
