To add to the mess, I broke 4 needles in the overlocking process. I think my workhorse Bernina is overdue for service! Everything is fine with a straight stitch and zig-zag, but the needle doesn't appear to be aligned properly with the overlock and blind hem. As soon as I finish the silk version I will take her to the Bernina dealer. Without a machine, perhaps I will be forced to work on my jacket. Most of what I have left is all hand work anyway, and I could use some extra practice on my buttonhole stitch before cutting into my sleeves.
I was so energized by completing the first blouse, I've already cut out the purple silk (with wider seam allowances), and can't wait to get started sewing!
