Not sure how this jeans project is going to go, since I was asked if I wanted a translation of the instructions and being a smarty pants said no of course not.
And now being too proud to admit I am not as smart as I think I am, am turning my old jeans inside out to figure this out.
One thing I do know is that I need to finish the edges before I go further.
Last year I bought a completely unused old Hobbylock Pfaff serger that was put on the market in the early days when zero went into the user friendly part. This, I am sure, is why this particularly tight, nice, 100% metal, built like tank unit, was left in the box by the previous owner.
It is no piece of cake to thread. Not even a piece of anything.
An illustration is me with a flashlight in my mouth and the tweezers my husband hides for emergency uni-brow repairs in my hand threading it.
I can't believe, BTW, that I left the country without interfacing with me.
I mean who does that?
I decided to use a light weight denim since the boyfriend jeans have rolled bottoms, and I am making them for my spring and summer with the Jokers, my collective name for the three grandchildren at home. But now I think the waistband might be sort of flimsy.
Such a worry. But I am sure I can find something stiff around the RV to use ...
Just because it isn't interfacing doesn't mean it can become interfacing.
Stay with me.
