Next shirt I think I'll try the flat fell seams on the side and shoulders but I'll have to slightly adjust the seam allowance in those areas. Pam Erny just republished directions on her webiste on how to do this at the sleeve. Off the Cuff blog. It's a lightweight sports shirt for up here in MD fro fall but he'll pack it and take it to FL when we leave in 3 weeks.
As for my personal sewing disappointment this week, I'll wait to blog about that later when I can get some pictures and ask for feedback. I'm heading up today to visit a friend in PA. Tomorrow we're going to a fabric sale of a woman from her sewing guild who has passed away. From what I've heard she was a wonderful sewer as well as friend so although the stash that is left may be impressive, I don't believe it's sad and frightening like some of the craft and fabric hoarders I have heard about.
In the meantime, here are pictures of the new and improved sewing room. We still have to install some Homesote boards on the wall behind the entry door. I'm going to live with it for a while and see what I think about the wall space behind my sewing machine and sergers.
