Creative Sewing – Chapter 5


In a perfect world this post would have all the shots of creating the trim and attaching it.  But this is not a perfect world and I try not to sweat the small stuff.  The camera battery died in the midst of me taking pictures as I create the trim for the evening gown.  The battery charger has been missing in action for a couple of months.  My clutter-phobic husband placed it somewhere out of sight and since he’s never been known for having a strong memory, can’t remember where.  Yesterday, I broke down and ordered a replacement charger.  In the meantime I’ll post the pictures I do have. Once I have a fully charged camera battery, I’ll take the rest of the picture and post them.

I started sewing when I was 11 years old, and had my own clients when I was 12. I graduated from the H.S. of Fashion Industries, majoring in fashion design. I expanded my technical background by attending evening classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology and working many years at a major pattern company. I have been creating custom wedding gowns and evening dresses for more years than I care to count. I LOVE WORKING WITH FABRICS. I love fine sewing techniques. I love creating beautiful dresses.

  1. Such a pretty stitch. What type of foot did you use? I don’t recognize it.

    • Hello Faye:

      I am assuming you are referring to the foot with a single hole in the middle. It is a grooved piping foot for my industrial machine. It has a groove on the bottom to make it easier to create and install piping because the piping fits in the groove. Some are available with two grooves for either right or left applications. Similar ones for the home sewing machines are either metal or plastic.
