Re: The Kilim Carpet Coat : Adding the Collar and Sleeves

How did you finish the edge of the lapped seams that shows?

Re: Get Creative with Heirloom Buttons

I recently altered a mens T shirt to make it more feminine. In addition to cutting out the high ribbrd neck and making it a rounded scoop, I also re- used the neck ribbing. To do this, I separated it from the fabric, ironed it open, then cut it in half lengthwise. This gave me a piece of ribbing in exactly the same color as the T and long enough to finish the new scoopneckline with. It produced a lovely narrow ribbed band that gave the T a nice light professional look.
