I am not a seamstress. My sewing machine ALWAYS wins a battle.
I always lose. It’s not fair…but there it is.
And lately we have been fighting. And, as usual, I am losing.
My sewing machine has decided to take a timeout. Darn thing.
But, I had this cute jacket that I wanted to make pretty…
So, I set out to do so without my sewing machine. Take that!
I used vintage collar lace, fabric scraps, buttons, and…stich wizard!!
And I made this…
Little strips of fabric on the sleeve hem and pocket were attached with stitch
wizardry. Same with those lace collars…stitch wizardry.
Gosh, I wish there was something with wizardry in the name for buttons.
But, no…I put those suckers on the oldfashioned way. Thread and needle.
And…I added an extra button.
Anyways, that simple jacket now has some fun vintage details in this blazer refashion!
All without my wayward sewing machine!
Stitch Wizardry. Remember that!
