Today is day one of construction in the Jackie sewalong! It's time to put all of your sewing practice from last week's post to work. For today we will be applying interfacing and preparing the back facing for construction. We will be creating our button loops, which involved turning out a tiny tube of fabric right side out. You'll learn tips on how this is done, and how to apply beautiful rouleau button loops to your facing.
If you had any idea how long this pattern has been in the works, you’d be very happy for me today! This pattern has been on a bit of a journey with me and has taught me a LOT! In the early days of her conception, this poor girl, along with my computer, was hijacked by a car washer named Dan, she’s been re-drafted, re-written and made into more muslin’s than I’d care to say. She’s waited patiently while I tended to write a book, she’s trekked to Australia and back, twice. After all of this, I’ve wanted to give up on her a few times, but I just couldn’t because, well, I’m stubborn and I just really love her! She’s taught me patience, perfectionism and the importance of simplicity.
