I started work on my pannier yesterday.
I was going to work on new 18th century stays first but yesterday, while going through the stash, I discovered that I had over 12 yards of hoop boning (a lot more than I thought was there!). Then I found a sturdy white cotton, some twill tape and hoop connectors also in the stash and decided to just go for it since I had all the supplies I needed.
's example I'm using the Simplicity pattern. So far so good. The real point of this post though is to express the sentiment:I HATE flat-felled seams!
It's not that they are hard or anything it's just the whole sewing seams twice thing. It's annoying and I get bogged down, bored and un-motivated quickly. French seams are the same. *sigh* I know I'll be happy I did it in the end though.
Okay enough whining, back to it!
