Sewing with Friends part 2

We met again and finished cutting out the pattern and started to sew!

We explained all the details like the graineline and “on the fold” symbols. From there we tested the tension of the machine and started to sew the first pocket in the side panel!

We finished it with french seams!  We are going to finish the second pocket separately and get together to work on the bodice.

Also, there was a moment where her machine jammed and she mentioned it was getting really tight in the bobbin area. I looked at the bobbin, then looked at the top thread holder that moves up and down. The string had popped out of there!! Just like my epic sewing jam of the past. I fixed it like a pro and tried to explain how I only new how to do that after so much research when it happened to me in the past.

This has been so fun to do with a friend!
