Janome has launched a new Cover lock machine; the 3000 professional. The coverstitch machine does indeed look very professional and is an absolute asset if you often sew clothes made of jersey, tricot, jogging fabric or other stretch fabrics. The machine creates very nice cover stitches that give the garment a professional look to lick your fingers.
We have tested the coverstitch machine or coverlocker for you and are happy to share our review in this blog.

Vogue V1659 is a sewing pattern for a chic blouse by the designer Claire Shaeffer. This sewing pattern falls under the category: Custom Couture Collection.

We made this blouse from a 'Delft blue' (= typical Dutch) fabric, inspired by the trend 'I love Holland'.
And the good news: the sewing pattern is not that difficult. It is quite easy to make.
