Still sewing

 These photos show the set up of the machine for making all the !@#$%^&* tucks. It's not all that difficult, just time consuming and mind numbing. Two threads and a twin needle and my trusty old Elna. You can see the stitch settings a little in the top photo. I've been sewing on this machine since the early '80's.
The sewing continues, but at a slower pace while my granddaughter is here for her spring break. The first grad dress is finished just needs pressing. The slip to the second dress is done (lovely bias silk crepe) and progress is being made on the dress. Got one of the carnival costumes out and have a close deadline on the other ones, so I will push ahead on that this coming week.
