Re: Underlining with Fusible Interfacing

Firstly, I want to say thank you for this article. I am printing it out for easy reference. Secondly, what pattern did you use for the randomly pleated top? Just curious, and I want to make one too. It is gorgeous. Thank you again, Annette

Re: April is National Serger Month

I've just recently moved, and we are still moving. So my serger and machine are still at our old house. I am so missing them now and I can't wait to set up my new sewing room and get back at it! Thank you, and I love my serger. Last year I took an online class and sewed an entire t-shirt with my serger. Really opened my eyes to the possiblities.

Re: Is There a Right Way to Iron a Garment?

I learned from my Mom, who used to work as a laundress and was very particular about taking care of clothing and linens. She, and now I, iron with a plan, which is almost exactly the same plan your grandma used. It works and everything you iron looks wonderful. Next up, how do you fold clothes?!?
