Thanks for reviewing the pattern. I'm cutting mine out tonight and it was nice to see your version. Love that facing!

You can sew over those pins with any metal vintage machine.  Maybe slow and try to avoid hitting dead on.

I have loved fray check a long time! My favorite use is to touch the inside of button holes before cutting them open. It prevents any messing fraying inside there and makes them just a teeny less likely to be slit to far if you are using a seam ripper.  I've always pressed over the glue stick before sewing- way I learned for quilting stuff.  I'll try it for garments without the heat.  The top looks great (and I'm in awe of you sewing parts at least on the straight stitch machine.  Another thing to try.)!

I'd use it for teaching my grandkids to sew. I have vintage machines that I love but have asteeper learning curve.
