    I have some fabric but could do with some solids because I want to start sewing using combinations of fabrics.
    Too many projects I want to do but feel like I don't know where to start 😕
    I need some projects! Inspire me 😊

    No pattern would have to make it up.

    Yes, I went and bought one. The chiffon is just so slippery it won't roll.

    Oh @Jontu you're far more skilled than me, I stick to patterns and don't sew with anything even remotely like jersey or anything that drapes haha!

    You may need to pre roll it once as you feed it in, so it ends up rolled double. That way if it starts to not roll properly it still has the first roll and you can slow down, adjust how you're feeding it in then keep going rather than having to stop and fix it. Hope that makes sense.

    Believe me I have had many disasters and unfinished projects that ended up in the bin!
    With jerseys I have recently discovered woolly nylon on the loopers in the overlocker and that has made such a huge difference.

    I still struggle with zippers and in particular finishing off waistbands. They always end up looking uneven and bulky.
    Have been sewing lots and joined a few fb groups so learning new techniques and starting to enjoy sewing again 😊
