Frilling tales of frockery

The weekend involved stays, rufflers, frills, glue, scissors, paper,
rulers, fabric, sewing machines that failed and those that worked, and
lots of wine.  The wine happened after most of the sewing...

Just looking at your pictures made me tired!  Goodness at the work you two,
plus the guys, got accomplished!  Just think of the work you all could have
done if the machines had cooperated!  Love the teal!

Giggle...  It takes me a day or so to recover from these frantic
weekends, but they are SOOOOO much fun!  Sewing buddies is good!

The sewing machines weren't a problem.  We had two working sergers and
several working sewing machines threaded up in different colours.  I do
have more than 20 in the house to choose from...  ;)

That teal is wicked, isn't it.  :D

Oooohhh, that makes me want to play with my ruffler.  I
don't think I have ever even installed it on the machine,
but it looks like it would be delightful fun and games.

As for your Naughty Machines:  Behave!

HTH,

Slap that ruffler on your 401, and get yards and yards of scrap, then
play.  You'll be amazed at what you can do with it, and get perfect
results.  It's a marvelous piece of engineering.

Yeah, yeah, I'll get to that right after you run off some
designs on your XL6000 (It's a marvelous piece of
technology). ;-D

I don't currently have any work requiring yards and yards of
ruffles, it was probably wonderful for making those cute
ruffled curtains of yesteryear. http://deloresruffles.com /

*Pfffffffffttt!!*  I've used mine to sew ruffles on the bottom of
nightgowns.  I like long, sweeping gowns made of light-weight cotton,
and a ruffle at the bottom just adds to the sweep.  ;-)

I just signed up for a webinar in September to go through the workbook
for the XL6000.  So there!

Indeed.  I imagine there is still a demand, otherwise the
web site would not exist.

Hmm, finally something we *don't* agree on.  I wear pajamas,
ruffles around the bottoms just would not do.  ;->

Those pajamas are so cute for younger ladies, like the two older of my DGDs;
one married last year and the other is 22-YO.

My youngest DGD is 19-months old, but I still think the older ones would
like them.  I imagine I could make some similar for them and the 12-YO.

  We call them "baby-doll pyjamas."  I distinctly remember Beverly being
told that she is a doll.  So if the PJ fits, wear it.
