I remember it like it was yesterday! I was 7 years old at the time and was laying on my stomach on my Oma's couch in Cologne, West Germany (before reunification) watching it on the only television in the house.

Re: A Nice Little Suit

I absolutely love the skirt! Thank you so much for sharing the ensemble with us.

Re: The Fortuny Jacket

OMG, I am so envious! Your jacket is divine and you've styled it so well.

Re: The Fortuny Shirt

What a wonderful shirt, Kenneth! Thank you for sharing this technique. And, if anyone can rock a Fortuny jean or jacket, it's you!

Re: Meeting the Union Special Chainstitching Machine

Rabia, that sounds like a blindstitch machine. I have one and love it! I work in an industrial machine shop so I see all sorts of really cool machines. At the moment, I am coveting a cylinder-arm walking-foot machine, sigh.

Re: Raw-Edge Bias Binding

Oh, Louise, that's gorgeous! Thanks for sharing it.

Re: Bag Your Jacket Lining

I'm surprised to see the lower part of the facing finished off by hand. It's so much easier and neater to stitch that last bit by machine when bagging the lining.

Re: Mystery Sewing Machine Foot

It's a vintage zigzag attachment for a straight stitch machine.
