1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / I Have No Idea!!! what sewing machine do i have?? on: December 10, 2012 04:27:55 PM

Sorry for the crappy picture... This is my sewing machine, got it from a friend in the Netherlands. It's labeled as a Baronie machine but after crawling through the vast interwebs i concluded that it is most likely to be a kenmore, it has the typical red/black fancy stitch lever on the upper left dial.

Does anyone recognize the dial layout, or even better, the machine itself? What i'm looking for is a brandname and model number. Many thanks!!!

You can't really see it in the picture but the yellow fabric is waffled, and i made piping from the same fabric. Making piping is actually really easy, just cut a strip of seam 2 times the seam allowance + double the size you want the piping to stick out, fold it over and sew in between.

A few months ago i got blessed with a place to sell my sewings, and i worked like crazy to make stuff and consequently forgot to take pictures of most of it, some of it is already sold and i hope to take some pictures of things that i haven't sold yet. Anyhow, this i finished yesterday (after spending a week on 2 dresses that from the beginning felt like no-hopers but you know how it is, sometimes you know you should give up but you just continue anyway) and i am thrilled to have finished something without getting lost halfway through (:

Hi Randimae

I moved to sweden 1,5 year ago and i was sort of shocked by the amount of time people spend on their looks here. It's strange, everyone looks bergroomed but at the same time the majority looks the same, so following the trend seems to be more important than having your individual style even if everybody is always talking about how they bought their things either 'vintage' or 'abroad'.

My reaction on all this was that at first i felt like i only had weird clothes and had no idea how people percieved me (since dresscodes DO vary from country to country!) but since one of the first things i took with me was my sewing machine i just started making my own clothes which made me happy and sort of diverted me from wondering what i should wear. Being yourself beats all the crappy hypes and trends!

i love the fabric (and the whole outfit)!
Sewing your own clothes will make you wear a lot more skirts and dresses than you ever have, because they are so much easier to sew than pants... i speak from experience (:

What kind of thickener did you use?

I think the trick with bound buttonholes is that you make buttonholes in both the lining and the outside fabric and then sew them together. Frustrating because it means twice the amount of suffering...
