Well, I thought I would be posting that I finished my green Bliaunt today, but I've hit a major snag. I got the gussets pinned and sewn up and the arms sewn up. Tried it on and realized that the bobbin thread hadn't caught. I spent two hours sewing and fighting with a jamming bobbin and cleaning and taking the bobbin casing apart only to have it all go up in flames. Argh.
Good news is a guy in the town 15 minutes away fixes singers and gives free estimates. I also have two wonderful friends who are going to loan me a sewing machine and to help me find a backup.
