    Hi Mary! I made your scrap lace blouse featured in Thread's #169 (Nov. 2013) and I used a different pattern, Simplicity No. 1620. I wanted to know how close you recommend your machine stitching of the grid. I did 5/8" between the seams and I think this was too wide. I posted the pic as my profile pic here for you to see.

    Hi Malsews,

    I can't enlarge your photo to a clear level. However, the yoke on my dress has rows of stitching about 3/8" - 1/2". On other projects, 1/2" is about the maximum distance I've done. I don't think there's any harm in having them wider apart. Maybe the piece won't be a durable. Your blouse looks lovely, but if you think you need more stitching, you might be able to go in a do some of that carefully on the completed garment. The great thing about this technique is the randomness.
