The dress I’m trying to finish this weekend – with POCKETS – is telling me it needs a zipper foot to do the back zip. I’ve tricked my machine into sewing zippers without a zipper foot, but I’ve been trying to improve the quality of sewing, so I want to try to do this right.
I pawed through a jumble of sewing machine accessories and found a mess of metal.
Look what I’ve been sitting on:
An adjustable hemmer foot that won’t fit my machine
Of the whole little box, these are the only things I can use
All these years, I’ve been sticking masking tape to the machine to do this. And now I know what that random hole is for, too.
NO! I’ve resisted buying new sewing stuff all week. Ignored a giant JoAnn sale. Went into the Hancock to look at patterns and polished cotton and put it all back. And now I need a trip to the Vogue for a zipper foot?!
Right. Figures it doesn’t fit after a special trip. My trusty Singer Stylist 776 has a slanty shaft. When can I get to the Hancock to get the right size? And then where am I going to hide two yards of silver metallic silk?
