I used to sew garments and mostly quilt now. I would really like to re-learn garment construction to sew for both my wardrobe and others.
Thanks for the opportunity.
My tip for good ironing and pressing is to go with "no steam" and to keep a spray bottle next to the iron. I switch between quilting 100% cottons to velvet and wool to drapery fabric and heirloom sewing. All needing different ironing/pressing techniques and steam/no steam. If I keep the iron empty and spray as needed for steam then I am always ready for the next garment or project. The project I am currently in the middle of is new drapes for my bedroom. One panel done 3 to go.
My alltime mantra tip is to "measure twice...cut once". If only I could take back the times I cut before I had measured the second time.
If the pattern fits, and the garment is cut properly...the sewing will usually be a success.
I believe Louise Cutting to be one of our industries best educators. She is so on target with techniques. Would love to learn more from her in these videos.
love the new patterns especially the tunic.
Too Wonderful To Be True! That is if I am so lucky to receive the Couture book. What an amazing way to step it up a notch for my sewing.
Thank You for the opportunity.
