Re: How to Draft a Square Sleeve Cap

I've been wanting to know how to draft this kind of sleeve as well and I have a dress project planned that it will be perfect for. Great, easy instructions.

Re: A Beautiful Hem for a Four-Ply Silk Crepe

You mentioned this technique during a class I took with you. I could not for the life of me visualize how this worked. Now it's crystal clear. Thank you for sharing this wonderful technique.

Re: Win a Copy of Smart Fitting with Kenneth D. King on DVD

I've taken both of Kenneth's classes on Craftsy and had the opportunity to take some classes in person with him. He's a great teacher and the opportunity to have him in my home teaching me how to fit better would be wonderful. Like many women my age my figure has changed and fitting it well is sometimes a challenge. I need all the help I can get.

Re: A Trick for Working with Raw Silk

It's a great tip; now the trick is for me to actually remember it when I need it!

Re: A Quick Fix for a Baggy Blue Coat

Nice solution.

I've seen the sleeve forms in the catalog but didn't know how they are used, so thank you. You've given out some really good information, particularly on matching prints like this, something I find difficult.

Re: A Fix for a Baggy Seat

This is the only way for me to get my pants back to hang smoothly. Adding to the bottom is definitely better than your earlier method.
