I did not have any appropriate rick rack so I left it off and made a little color detail in the pockets to match the waist band and the sash.
See the tiny 1/8" rolled hem. I love this foot! This is proof that it does not require a serger or even a zig zag capable machine to make a professionally finished garment. A simple straight stitch machine will do it. My vintage machines don't even have a reverse function.
Ethel's hand crank came in the mail last evening. I took her electric motor off and attached the hand crank. I think it suits her wonderfully. The pear shaped plate on the back is visible in all of it's beautiful glory now. I love the grape vines etched into the plate. The old motor and light only covered those up.
Bonus from Valentine's day. I made this shirt for my husband who is the most excellent partner I could have ever asked for. He wanted a shirt that isn't billowy around the body. Mission accomplished! Next he wants a white one.
