I’ve become something of a home seamstress I guess. This is the second adjustment of uniform for my husband. First, sewing on rank, now replacing a zipper. Maybe I’ve become a sweatshop! Ha 🙂 Apparently they don’t sell zippers anymore at clothing and sales because no one really bought them. His zipper broke at the bottom where they…stamped down some sort of glue down over the cloth edge of the zipper. Here is the new one installed (removed from an old top):
I also added the Citadel flag logo, a Palmetto tree, to the brothers shirt. I used a no-sew adhesive with not so great results. It seemed to dry really fast and I had a hard time spreading it fast enough! I couldn’t think of a better way to get the logo on the shirt besides a double-sided fusible, which my local store didn’t have. I need to mail this out tomorrow! I also thought of using the appliqué function on my Janome but thought it would be too difficult, if feasible at all, in the little grooves on the design. Anyway, here it is on:
And here is the last (sewing) project of the year. The same shirt as above, but in a (knit?) fleece. I didn’t realize it was so stretchy until last night when I started cutting the pieces. I hope I can handle the challenge of knit. I am armed with jersey needles and a blind understanding of how knits act. LOL!
