The flat felled seam foot.

Despite the fact that I have a cold, and therefore really wanted to spend the day in bed or on the sofa with a blanket and a hot water bottle, I wanted to try my jeans foot out and get my second jeans skirt sewn today. viking footThe foot is easy to snap on to the shank and makes a neat seam with precisely folded edges. You do need to remember to sew the seam on the outside of the garment to get the typical jeans style two row stitched finish on the right side of your fabric. I practiced on scrap fabric first but of course forgot when I sewed the first seam on my skirt! By the time I’d finished the skirt I felt quite confident using the foot and will happily use it again for my next skirt … or even a pair of jeans!
So why no photos of the skirt, you may be wondering, well the skirt is navy blue, the thread is navy blue and does not photograph well enough to show the seams clearly. McCalls jeans skirt
