My Final Reveal: Neat & Tidy

Tuesday morning I stitched the darts, side and shoulder seams at home. I had to prepare for hand sewing in the office.  This pattern recommends a self-bound seam, neatening up the raw edges inside the garment.  English net doesn't fray, but the self-bound seams sure look lovely.

Tuesday evening I took some floral spray paint to some vintage lace I had in my house.  Andrew bought me two cans of paint in hopes one would work.  (I tend to work in the same hues all the time so I know I can use the other can for something.)

Spent so far: $51 and 6:30


  1. French seams are nice on English net too.

  2. I'm sure that one of these projects will require me to learn how to do French seams. :)
