I was going to sew up a few more demo outfits, take pictures, and put the Celestial Sailor outfit pattern online yesterday.
Replacement sewing machine #2 showed up on Saturday (Replacement #1 arrived broken). Replacement #2 was not broken, technically, it’s just that the factory-set tension was so ridiculously bad that adjusting the setting manually wasn’t enough to make a straight stitch straight. Or tight.
So replacement machine #2 is going back too. I’ll be trying a different brand/model with #3, so hopefully that will work better.
I WILL be finishing up a couple of demo outfits and the pattern WILL be going up in the Etsy shop later today, it’s just going a lot slower because I’m working on my original machine, which still sews a straight stitch, but every other function, including reverse, is broken >.<
