Re: Construct a Cardi-wrap in an Hour

Nice, but sure wish you'd show the back with both ends flipped over the shoulder. I'm lacking in spatial skills.

Re: Start to Finish, an Embroidered Fortuny Frock Coat

Magnificient. Fortuna anything has always been a favorite and it's inspiring to see what you did with it. Yum, if I could only buy some of those beauties.

Re: Start to Finish, an Embroidered Fortuny Frock Coat

Gorgeous. You make everything look easy to do for a home sewist.

Re: Bust Dart Pressing: Cup Size is a Factor in Which Technique You Choose

This is new news to me; never thought of it. Thank you. As always, you provide both education and inspiration.

Re: Video: An Easy, Flat Fly-Front Zipper

Great tutorial and I hope Threads continues to carry it. I refer to it every time I install a fly zipper.

Re: Construct a Flawless Collar Band

THANK YOU Louise; clear (as usual) instructions. I've always loved your patterns and instructions.

Re: How to Find Your Waist and Other Measurements

Enlightening, especially on where is the side seam. Once I learned about shoulder slopes, front and back, it improved greatly the fit of my garments. Thank you.

Re: Create a Garment Using Tyvek

Thank you, Linda. Great idea. QUESTION: what do you think of Tyvek as a pattern paper, instead of other pattern papers? Thanks

Re: How to Draft a Square Sleeve Cap

Thank you, Kenneth, for another excellent tutorial. I have ALL your written and video publications and have learned so much. Your use of geometry to create masterpieces inspires me. I'll definitely use this sleeve.

Re: How to Sew a Classic White Shirt

I subscribe to both Threads magazine and Insider. I'm not sure what this Insider article does for me.

Re: Make your Dress Form Work for Multiple Figures

Love this idea. Question: what to do when the dress form is way too short from shoulder to bust point? Padding doesn't quite do it.
