More on Lutterloh 2005-16. Silk crepe is a tricky fabric. Every now and then it wants to catch the needle and pull a fiber. However, after consulting my Betzina Fabric book and then my other various books, I chose to use the Viking teflon foot. It is hard to believe what a difference the teflon foot makes. No pulls, holds that silk and sews like a charm. I love my extra Husqvarna Viking feet. I know I have referenced them now several times in these writings, and they are all well worth the price. The Teflon foot came with my machine, but I would buy it in a minute if I had to. Now I am working on the plackets for the sleeves, then to apply the cuffs, buttons and finally the hem, and this will be a lovely wearable garment. Pictures of that last step will be forthcoming when all is done.
