Sewing a 1940s sun suit or romper with the a Singer featherweight 

Here my trusty Singer 221 can be seen working a buttonhole. My little girl loves to climb up on the chair, prop herself behind me with arms about my neck and watch me work . For buttonholes she will sometimes huddle on my knee as the machine works it’s magic.

This sunsuit will be one of my gifts to my little girl who has her second birthday in a few weeks time. The pressure is on to get such projects finished, get the house looking a bit more orderly and plan a suitable morning tea menu for our visitors. And perhaps a few games to make it more ‘party’ like.

If anyone is interested in sewing lace or more accurately, net curtains with the 221, my adjustable hemming fit was awesome, last weekend. I will caveat that by saying I have two adjustable hemming feet, and one foot kept snagging net on the tooth.   Painstaking… The other was a breeze. So do test before you go hell for leather.

 Love my Singer 221.
