I like faux fur because it has been so surprisingly easy to sew. I am also in love with raw silk.
Gorgeous! Both you and the dress!
Hot! So glad to see menswear, especially such a great looking piece.
I have a long back and low slung bottom, so I have always had trouble with pants and fitted skirts. Now I am retired I don't wear fitted skirts anymore, but the need for perfectly fitting pants is even greater. Thanks for this offering and great interview.
Well, it seems I can say it a lot.
All I can say is WOWSIE!
I really like this. It is quite elegant on you, and the fabric choice is wonderfully retro. Congratulations!
Beautiful top. Love the "surprise" back. Good job on enhancing the lace.
GREAT pants and jacket. Any top would go well under, including a ruffled front.
This is just too cute. The pants and top would suit my figure exactly.
What a great opportunity. I bet if I made my own grocery bags I would have an easier time remembering to take them with me to the store!
My grandmother had a treadle sewing machine, and although I learned to sew in school, she taught me how to control the treadle, the thread feed, and the bobbin (which included knowing how to oil all the parts), and I made many, many clothes on that machine. My granddaughter is almost old enough to begin to sew, and I hope to leave her some warm, loving memories like those I have of Grandma T.
28 skirts??? I would only have to do laundry once a month! What a wonderful idea. In addition, my little granddaughter would STYLE IT.
For our first 100 years we relied on England (London) and France (Paris) to drive fashion in the Colonies. We can still take inspiration from them, as inspiration can come from anywhere/anything. And I need all the inspiration I can get!
I am just learning about the serger. It's in the box, and my fingers tremble as I approach it. ANY help would be very welcome.
I have a very interesting piece of crochet fabric I bought in Jamacia while on a cruise there in 1980. Never used it because I have never seen anything like it anywhere. I will probably leave it to my granddaughter when I win the race by dying with the biggest stash! :)
This was my beautiful mother's fashion era, and I would love to have this book to help me introduce the 1940's to my beautiful granddaughter.
Ah, the mysterious part of Project Runway --- creating the collection. Any help would be fab!
ANYTHING would help me. I took a short class on tailoring, but, unfortunately I didn't really learn much.
What a great beginning for little sewers. The little sewer-to-be who lives with me would love this so that she can sew along side her grandma.
Sounds just fabulous. It goes on my list of wants.
My grandmother was a milliner. I never learned the art of hat making from her, to my great regret. Maybe now is the time (I am 66 and a grandmother myself).
Although I am too old to wear it, I am in LOVE with haute couture and would be very happy to add this book to my collection.
There is a fabric designer about 75 miles from us in Carson City, NV, and I hope to pay her a visit before the summer season is over. This book would be a fabulous source for me as I investigate the amazing possibilities in our modern era.
The one thing I have never had any training at all in: draping. What a wonderful opportunity. Thanks, Threads.
I am seriously enamored by the artistically designed fabrics made on behalf of the designers in Project Runway. I am sewing for a 4 year old, and I would love her name, her artwork, her favorite colors on dresses, pants, tops, etc. for her. What a kick! Pick me!
Cute as can be. I can see this made in many different large prints for my precious little girl. Thanks for the inspiration.
I want to WIN; I am a grandma raising a granddaughter and I would love to have this aid to my sewing better and to her beginning sewing when she is seven or so (she is 4 now). Thanks for offering this.
