How to Design with Sheer Fabrics

Threads magazine - 127 – Oct./Nov. 2006 Issue
Article Image
To discover the wonders of sheer-fabric manipulation, start with a sheer fabric and then create new prints for more exciting garments. You can change the shape of these fabrics by layering, tucking, pleating, gathering, or ruching. Make stripes into solids or plaids; make dots into stripes. Once you get the hang of it, use your new creations to rev up your garment sewing. Fred Bloebaum explains the benefits of these gossamer fibers. From Threads #127

    Question: I registered as an Insider some weeks ago, but did not sign up for a subscription because I am already a subscriber. When I get messages like this one, I try to log in but just keep getting the original message again...which asks me to register. Can you confirm if my registration succeeded or not? Am I an Insider? If so, why don't I get "in"? If not, let me know and I'll try again. (....although I think I actually did try again once already!) Thanks
