Featherweight project #1

12 Apr

OK, it is a bad photo, but I was happy because I could take it outside on a beautiful day.  A lovely raspberry “sueded outerwear” fabric picked up at Dressew for $3 per metre, and it makes a lovely, lightweight garment bag.  The zipper has some wonky stitching and there are a few other issues that are also operator error, but Shelby the Featherweight came through with flying colours.  What a lovely machine to sew with!

Features on the bag include a side zipper so it can be unzipped and unloaded while hanging on a crowded rack and a loop in the center of the bottom seam so it can be picked up and looped over the hook of the hanger.  That serves a dual purpose of making the whole thing shorter and easier to carry plus it takes the weight of the dress and helps keep it from stretching out.
