Vintage Sewing

Yes, August is over…but

September 6, 2006

I’m still plugging away. A few work and school things pulled me away but my August projects are nearly done.

fabrics were cut out

zippers were installed

and the facing has been sewn in for the red skirt.

However, after having a very frustrating time with the red skirt’s zipper I decided to put in the gray zipper differently. I was flipping through Wendy Mullin’s book Sew U at the bookstore and decided that instead of doing the lapped zipper that the pattern asked for I was just going to do it the easier way, as a centered zipper.

So by doing the zipper, then the facing on the gray skirt and a few hours (maybe days) of watching TV and hand sewing the hems, I should definitely be done this week.


  1. Looking forward to seeing them done, good on you finding a way to sew in a zip that suits you, I hate the things!

    I’ve still not finished my dress and probably won’t this week so you’re not alone in your finishing up.
