More Plaid in my FutureJanuary 17, 2017 / byThin Man Sewing / Categories : Feeds
Actually, the shirt turned out OK, except for the collar. I think the collar is too small. I was originally making this shirt for Joe, but I didn't feel it was nice enough, so I have been wearing it around the house. It is soft and comfortable and fits me perfectly even though it is a size 40 with no adjustments.
My new Singer Future CE 150 did a great job on the buttonholes. I used the default settings, which is rare with an automatic buttonhole. Usually at least the stitch length has to be adjusted.
I purchased this machine because it was a great price and I wanted to try it since I didn't have a Singer embroidery machine.
The embroidery by this machine is beautiful. I think it is better than my Janome and my Brother.
However, I wouldn't recommend this machine because it needs a computer operating Windows 7 with 32 bit processor. Most machines the last few years have Windows 10 with a 64 bit processor. I suppose Singer was liquidating these machines because they were outdated.
I decided to try a different patterrn using McCall 6932. I had just enough material to make a short sleeve shirt.
I like the 6932. It is casual with a notched collar.
I am now on a plaid kick. Another plaid shirt is being made with Simplicity 2741.
Thanks for stopping.
