Oh how it pains me to write this post. But I appreciate it when other bloggers show the good and the bad so I thought I would show you my latest horrific discovery.
One morning I was getting ready for work I was happily putting on my lovely blue Pendrell top when I looked down and saw my skin peaking through the seam.....<
>. This is what the seams of my Pendrell top now look like:
On first glance I thought I could repair this...but now I'm not so sure. The fraying has gone right past the seams so a repair would mean taking in the seams and I don't know if I have the room for that.
Lesson in sewing: When using fabric which frays easily do not just do a simple seam and pink the edges...it won't suffice!
So I have a few questions for your stitchers out there with vast sewing experience (ie. all of you because I am sure you all would know not to treat fray-able fabric as I did!):
1. Can you do a French Seam on a Princess Seam (which the Pendrell top has)?
2. The french seam would definitely be the best seam for this type of fabric (I don't have an overlocker). Can anyone suggest any other way of finishing the seam with this type of fabric?
3. Any suggestions as to how to save my Pendrell??!!!!!
