As it turned out, I had to take the buttonhole foot AND the sewing machine into the Bernina store today.
For a mere $175.00, they will service the machine and fix the feed dogs. It seems that after using the machines for so long, the feed dogs get scwooshed or something. Thankfully, I was able to return the $115.00 buttonhole foot since that wasn't the problem.
This was a really nice day. Phylly, Margaret and I went to lunch at TGIF. We now have our "own" table in the bar. The place was busy one day, and we had to sit up there. Ever since, we always go to that same table. The three of us could sit and talk all day long, but Phylly always has to go back to work.
I have started what I HOPE will turn out to be a really special project. I am trying to COPY that Marfy pattern I showed you a few days ago -- remember?
I am using my Sure-fit Designs Dress Kit to duplicate this style. I am making a BLOUSE -- not a dress. I worked on it all afternoon.
I wanted to call Glenda SO BADLY, but I made myself try to figure it out.
What I wasn't sure about was IF the white part is faced and top-stitched onto the pink part,
OR is there a seam down that princess line including the pointy parts,
OR do the buttons actually work and hold the thing together,
OR is it a wrap dress and the pink part goes all the way to the other side?
I have both sides drawn off, and I will cut it out of something tomorrow morning. Wish I had that piece of bright green fabric that matches the green daisies. It is, of course, at the other house.
