knitting, restyle, sewing

I made my first handbag when I was 11. I did not have a pattern (it was 1965) I used poster board and covered it with brown fabric. I used a belt kit to make the strap. Handbag #2 was knitted with a long braided strap of yarn. I need this book! :)
My style is almost everything but in moderation. I like 50's sheath, a 40's twin set with a pencil skirt. I never wear purchased clothing.
A new Spring/Summer wardrobe!
Separates are always a good choice and the princess seaming and nipped in waist is attractive for all figures. Also the jacket and top with the slacks is perfect for work.
My mother used to tell me stories about all the wonderful hats she wore in the late 40's and 50's. We women should bring hats back in a BIG WAY. I will do my part with this book! :) I would like info on supplies especially.
I really want this DVD! I bought a serger 20 years ago and still have no idea what to do with it or how to use it.
I voted for Black Vinyl Ensemble. All I can say is Wow! I want to be the girl wearing that.
Iron! Press those seams. I have been sewing for 40 years. I cringe when I remember my first project. I did not own an iron at the time. Needless to say it was tragic!
I love Grand Central Station. There is something magical about disembarking a train into GCS.
I love Threads. I am a charter subscriber and I have all the archives on my computer and I am an Insider. I can't get enough! Free is good, too. :)
I will create a line of up-cycled clothing using flea market finds for twenty-somthings.
I have watched PR and PR AS from the beginning; even seasons with less talent - at least it is about fashion. I would wear all Stanley's designs and if I were 10 years younger Michelle's, too. I want them both to win! Patricia is a gifted textile designer. Daniel is OK. Layana who?
My tailoring skills could use some help from Claire B. Shaeffer.
I like the idea of making my own undies. It is something I have never attempted. I want knickers!
Yes! I need lamp shades, tab curtains and a slip cover!
Free Form scares me; but I would try it.
I've designed and made my own patterns since the 80's. I purchased "Designing Apparel Through the Flat Pattern" from the FIT book store (and some rulers.) I taught myself from that book and my husband helped take my measurements. Since then my clothing fits perfectly; even slacks!
I would like to learn to drape
This book is a must have for any fabric enthusiasts library!
Adding these to my sewing information would be fantastic.
I am a huge fan of Suede and Project Runway!
A startling image.
I make gifts for family and friends; this book has great ideas for that.
