sewing stretch mesh what a joy

denise | Posted in General Sewing Info on

I have just finished making a blouse in a stretch mesh in the most wonderful hippie design that has taken me back to the 70s, anyway how to do a button hole.

I had the most wonderful advice from the site i purchased the fabric from,

Take some grosgrain ribbon of similar colour and place in the inside of your front folds. This makes it sew (so) easy to make button holes in this wonderful fabric.

        If you wish to contact members privately, when you have finished typing your reply, scroll to the bottom of the screen, and click Reply Via Email. Only The member receives your message in their personal email, make sure to check you spam/junk folder, I have found some replies go there.

        Your personal email address, does show in the recipients inbox.

        A lot of websites have been posted by members..." I have purchased online from these sites etc....". They haven't been deleted. I would add your sites, they are great ones. I have yet to purchase from them, but do look from time to time, oh, I did  receive free swatches from EmmaOneSock, they were lovely.
