I am currently working with the most beautiful Hide And Seek Italian silk poplin, recently bought on a trip to Ditto Fabrics. You can just glimpe in the photo below dressmakersocial wearing some of the silk. Seeing her top inspired me to invest in a metre!
I am using my beloved Bernina walking foot to sew the silk, but I’m coming across a problem I’ve encountered before. Often, I pause my sewing to reposition the fabric in the machine. When I start sewing again, the foot’s dual feed causes a stitch to jump to one side, as below.
I have no idea how to stop this from happening. I always pause with my needle piercing fabric. Is that part of the problem? Am I interrupting my sewing at the wrong moment in the foot’s feed cycle?
Answers on a postcard, please!
