  • Just wondering if any adjustments have been made to the pattern to address the sleeve hem problem some people (above)had?
    Thanks!

    So Liesl got back to me on the Facebook page and explained that you don’t have to finish the seams when they are enclosed.
    Thanks, Liesl!

    Beginner question here…
    When you are sewing together the inside and outside jacket pieces, are you supposed to finish the seams?

  • Nancy replied to the topic First garment in the forum lullaby 3 months ago

    When you’re sewing the inside and outside parts of the lullabye jacket, do you have to finish the seams?

  • Nancy replied to the topic First garment in the forum lullaby 3 months ago

    For the lullabye jacket, what size bias binding Have you found to be best?
    Is 1 1/2 inch the right amount?
    Thanks.

    Hi,
    I actually finished my lullaby layette pants and shirt but I couldn’t manage to post it here so I put it on the Facebook page. I want to thank again everyone who shared their experience with me. I ended up pretty pleased with my result and am now embarking on the jacket. I got a patterned double gauze for the outside and solid voile for the o…[Read more]

    Ok..to follow up on the above post…
    I studied up on binding vs facing and figured it out. I’m going to finish it up by hand and move on to the sleeves. Inspired by Lightening McStitch I’m doing French seams on the sleeves/side seams. Close to the finish, I hope!

    Hi,
    I sewed my placket today (which is better than it could have been but not perfect) and started the neck finishing. I think it’s supposed to be a bias binding but it is much much eassier for me to do as a bias neck facing. Has anyone else had difficulty with this? Am I correct that it’s supposed to be a binding? I have read the pattern a lot…[Read more]

    That is super helpful. Thank you! I have been on vacation. Back to the project today!

  • Nancy replied to the topic First garment in the forum lullaby 5 months ago

    Thank you! That really helps!
    Thank you again to everyone who has responded to me. I’m going to order now…take the plunge soon! Feels like diving off the high board…to be overly dramatic about it!

  • Nancy replied to the topic First garment in the forum lullaby 5 months ago

    Thank you!
    Your input is so appreciated.

  • Nancy replied to the topic First garment in the forum lullaby 5 months ago

    Thank you! Since I made a practice placket, I will be able to practice on it which is good. (I was surprised that it didn’t call for interfacing on the shirt but does call for it on the bodysuit.) Do you use the 3 piece plastic applicator or the pliers?

  • Nancy replied to the topic First garment in the forum lullaby 5 months ago

    I am happy to say I finished my lullaby layette pants and today I did a practice placket for the shirt. It was challenging but I got it.
    Tomorrow I will add the placket to my shirt.
    Then the snaps situation is looming over me. I have read or heard some negatives about Snap Source saying sometimes they dont go in well and taking them out to redo…[Read more]

  • Nancy replied to the topic First garment in the forum lullaby 6 months ago

    Ok! Thanks for your thoughts. I think I will go for Snap Source.
    I agree the pants might be the least thrilling of the pieces but perhaps a good way for me to get started. Then I was thinking of the shirt next. Building up to the jacket!
    Next I have to figure out my fabric!

  • Nancy replied to the topic First garment in the forum lullaby 6 months ago

    That is so, so beautiful!!!
    You sure do prove it. Your workmanship is wonderful!

    I’m in San Francisco, CA, by the way. Thanks for inspiring me from Australia!

  • Nancy replied to the topic First garment in the forum lullaby 6 months ago

    Thanks for your thoughts!
    One more question!
    What seam finish do you use on the baby clothes?
    Thanks, again!
    Nancy

  • Nancy replied to the topic First garment in the forum lullaby 6 months ago

    Thank you. I appreciate your feedback! I was thinking that about the pants, too. Last night I was looking through the pattern and realized that I need to get snaps. People on the forum advised Snap Source. Do you usually get them online?
    I only need six (and maybe a few to practice on!) and might check my fabric store first.
    I’m excited to be s…[Read more]

    I haven’t done much sewing for many years. I’d like to start with the easiest garment in this collection. Can you advise me?
    Thanks!
