Beautifully knitted and stylish. You've taken lovely photographs of them too.

I love 40's fashion and I think you've chosen a fabulous combination of blouse design and print.

Beautiful! I love the ruffle detail and the style of sleeves.
25  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Overlocker foot pedal overheating on: November 19, 2011 01:44:05 PM
I have been using the small pencil edging/rolled hem stitch on my overlocker to finish the edges of some veils. I noticed after I had edged the first two that the foot control was hot and was producing a nasty burning smell. I wondered if it was finishing the edges of the veils that was causing the problem as I have never had any problems with the machine before.

I took the foot control to a repair shop and they werent able to do anything with it so replaced it with a new one.

However when I tried edging a veil with this new foot I noticed the same thing starting to happen so stopped before it got too hot.
Does anyone know what might be causing this? Are domestic overlockers not made to sew for beyond a certain length of time? Is it something to do with the rolled hem stitch (I havent used this stich before having only just discovered it)?
They arent massively long or full veils and I have tried varying the speed as I sew around and stopping for a minute occasionally.

The overlocker is a Toyota SL3335.

That is brilliant, I really like it!
I have one or two ties that didn't quite fit in with other creations so I think I will  have a go at one.

I recommend finding someone who knows how to knit and has enough experience, patience and time to teach you. Smiley

If not that then I'll add my vote to KnittingHelp.com.

Your dress looks lovely and using an unwanted sheet is a great idea.
Since first coming across the infinity dress idea Ive wondered if it could be made in a non-stretch fabric but Ive never gotten around to experimenting myself. I'd be more confident to make one now after seeing how yours turned out.

Wow! That is such an effective technique and youve done it really well, it looks just like real knitting!
Thank you for creating a tutorial. Im a knitter and Ive just started playing around with polymer clay - youve inspired me.
