Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: Fashion by Design

I would love this book because, like many sewists, I'd love to learn more about design! I end up designing a little every time I sew something because I'm choosing a fabric to go with a pattern, and I'm often doing more than that by moving pockets, combining sleeves from View A with the hemline of View B, etc.

Re: How to Make a Lovely Pleated-Ribbon Trim

That's beautiful! And the instructions are so clear. Thank you!

Re: How to Make Ribbon Trim

I have this trim in a custom-made coat that my mother-in-law had made for her in the 1960s! It borders an inside pocket in the lining, and I've always loved it. Thank you!

Re: Slot Buttonholes

This is a great idea! Thank you!

Of course, I'm now wondering if any jacket with a center front opening can be made with a cut-on facing! Just lay the facing pattern piece next to the jacket front, line up the seam lines and tape it together?

Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: "Designer Techniques"

I have to say Stella McCartney. Although she's not vegan, I admire her anti-fur and anti-leather stance and her willingness to stand up for the animals!

Re: Make Faux Feathers from Fabric and Wire

Thank you for this wonderful tutorial! These look fantastic, and no birds had to suffer or die!
