Matching plaids

My mom gave me this fabric several months ago. It’s a really nice cotton (think your favorite PJs) and I decided to make my third Rooibos dress.

I got a lot of satisfaction (and maybe some enjoyment) in matching the plaids, but my bust darts can use some work.  I sewed it mostly with my old Necchi, but did a blind-stitched hem on my new (to me) Viking 6030.

I love a good blind hem stitch!
