Re: A Clever Finish Makes a Single Layer Reversible

I am not clear on whether you press the seam allowances open and then stitch down or do you press both seam allowances in one direction and then stitch down...the armscye seam looks like the seam allowances have been pressed both toward the sleeve.

Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Industry Insider Techniques with Louise Cutting Volumes 1-4

I would love to have this set. I have been watching the previews of each Part as they have come out and there is always at least one of Louise's tips and techniques that provides me with an "aha" moment. So that is how it is done! I've been saving my pennies to purchase the set...but to win it for free would be nirvana!

Re: Giveaway: SewStylish Spring 2012 Fashion Sewing Guide

I would be interested in the Make It Your Way article. I have been sewing for more than 50 years and I am just beginning to experiment with design changes to a pattern. For a while I sewed for economic reasons, so that I could have new clothes. Then I made enough money to buy RTW so I didn't sew except to mend. Now I have retired and I have the time to play.
