I’ve been ironing all of my dear little projects on a college sized ironing board on the floor. Through 9 months of pregnancy and years before that, I’ve trucked around my little blue ironing board from college that I only ever used if I absolutely had to. Given that sewing forces you to make nice with your iron and my projects are not getting smaller and the thought of being a little old lady wracked with creaks and humps from leaning over something on the floor for long periods of time every day seemed rather terrifying, I decided it was time for an upgrade.
The Delorean brought me this back from 1985 via the thrift store?
Lovely, isn’t it? Starched to a glistening crispness, this floral beauty has been loved through many a tailored shirt. What–this funky fabric is not for you? Don’t fear, my friend! Alexander Henry knew that this day would come.
Much better. I used the super easy tutorial at U-Handbag to change out the old fabric. Just some pinning and some serging and it’s all done.
