Do you have any tips for finishing neck/arm holes on stretch fabric? I made a tank top with serged/folded & top stitched seams but it doesn’t look too profesh?

I like this way to finish neck and arm holes and it’s way less fiddly than trying to fold under fabric and what not.

Although some general knit tips:

  • Be super careful not to stretch the unfinished neck and arm holes while trying on your top. The fabric will warp and can send a cute project to hell.
  • A TWIN NEEDLE. I was so afraid of a twin needle. But I needn’t have been!! It means you can do a neat parallel top stitch that actually stretches. This video demonstrates twin needle stuff, but her machine is an expensive beast but she shows how you can adapt the threading for most machines.
  • Use the right needle for the job - a ballpoint or stretch needle won’t tear at the fibres of the material. Sometimes you need to use an appropriate needle size for differing fabric weights. I use a 70/10 regularly, but for some knits I need a 90/14.
  • Go really slowly. It’s boring and hurts your neck and leg but it pays off.

ETA: I found another, very comprehensive, post on finishing neck and sleeves on knits! The author has an overlocker that flatlocks as well, so ignore that fancy guff. Who can afford a Baby Lock? RICH PEOPLE.

I’m reblogging this because I forgot to add the last link. It’s very helpful.

Her foot hurts. She was bolting around the house erratically and licking her back paw so I soaked it in warm salty water. I don’t have a car so I can’t get to the vet. She has calmed down now so I hope the soak helped her. Miffy, why are you in the wars lately?!

Lucy Hicks Anderson was a pioneer in the fight for marriage equality. She spent nearly sixty years living as a woman, doing domestic work, and working as a madam. During the last decade of her life, she made history by fighting for the legal right to be herself with the man she loved.

After marrying her second husband, soldier Reuben Anderson, in Oxnard, California, in 1944, local authorities discovered that she was assigned male at birth. The couple was charged with perjury for marrying despite their both being legally male, resulting in ten years of probation. Standing up to the charges against her, Anderson said, “I defy any doctor in the world to prove that I am not a woman. I have lived, dressed, acted just what I am, a woman.” Years later, Anderson and her husband were charged again, this time with fraud after she received federal money reserved for military spouses. Both went to prison and were banned from Oxnard upon their release.

Lucy Hicks Anderson spent the remainder of her life in Los Angeles until her death in 1954, at age 68, leaving behind a legacy of authenticity and determination in the face of unjust laws.

Sorry to keep blabbin’ on about bras but what I’ve never understood is why the underwire couldn’t just, like, have a few perforations in it so it could be actually STITCHED into its sleeve. Am I vastly underestimating the complexity of underwires?

YOU NEED TO PATENT THIS.

IT COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING. (Except how wires feel like a steel trap around the ribs after 8 hours.)

This is really interesting! I wonder, though, how those holes would affect the strength or stability of the underwire itself. Like, if it’s weaker, it might snap more and I don’t want any of that near my breasts! LOL

Why are they flat metal to begin with? Could they not be tubular? Softer, and rounded edges would prevent them from poking out. Or some sort of plastic, or eco-friendly, renewable material?

A more tubular shape would be way more comfortable! I think metal is used because it’s stronger than plastic. Surely there’s someone doing work on this important issue. SURELY.
