That the majority of men all wear the exact same things, it's nice to see men who actually push the fashion barriers. I wish more modern men sported hats and bow ties.
I'm recent to quilting, just the small stuff. I love the image with "Award winning quilts", and I'd love to see more ideas for non-blanket quilting.
I try to exercise when I'm watching tv.
It's hard to find a selection of leather handbags out there and have always thought of making a tote style one from repurposing a leather coat.
So I can re-create and wear the high fashions from the magazines.
Out at the cottage I have a wood stove going in the winter and a few old sad irons (no electrical iron), so my tip for using those is to have a few heating up on the stove so you can keep switching to a hot one. I would love this new iron b/c I just found thrifting some old packages of vintage iron-on patterns in full colour. Can't wait to add some fruit to the bottom of a skirt.
My tip is to use a dress form and keep checking the fit.
My fave is the 50s, clothes and accessories.
I loved the outfits worn by Rachel McAdams in The Notebook. The high waisted shorts, 40s dresses, and how every outfits had an amazing pair of wedges.
I would love to see the free patterns, browse the latest issues, and be entered into contests like this.
I would mix vintage lace and fabrics and use them on modern silhouettes.
I'm always inspired by vintage fabrics, sometimes you hold onto them for awhile before you think of the right project.
I would want to learn more about making buttonholes.
I'd like to know more about the Victoria Era, just a beautiful time.
30 patterns! I'd love to make my own, especially 1950s style, lingerie and undies.
I would like some accessory ideas for using vintage fabrics.
My greatest quilting experience was being a kid and picking out the colours for my Grandmother to quilt with.
I would love to learn more about them as people and what their lives were like.
I enjoy beading on fabrics. It adds a little more definition and sometimes sparkle.
I would love this for my niece, she likes to play with all my notions and buttons.
I would love some new projects for the summer. The picture with the cone and stacking links is so smart, just like that plastic rainbow stacking toy everyone had.
I'd love to look through the photos in the book. 300 pics sounds amazing.
Garment Industry Secrets is most appealing.
What a gorgeous book. I'd love this book to get all my eras (and centuries) straight.
Painted Lace! I used this technique a few months ago on some jewelry projects.
I would love to see more images of his work. These dresses are so sculptural in form.
I would want to read Couture Construction first.
I'd love to win this book b/c it looks like it has a lot of christmas gift ideas.
I learn so much faster through picture instruction and not through written directions; the thumbnails for this book look like it provides tons of pics to explain things.
fashion magazines inspire me to want to create the high end looks
oh so good b/c books and mags take up so much shelf space. I love how it's a dvd too b/c then I can look through it at night to get ideas.
i`ve always wanted to make a quilt using all the fabrics found in my grandmother`s house for my mom.
I love to see the history of women through clothing and jewelry. I love collecting both categories of vintage and to me the older the better. Personally I find it very hard to find the older stuff; I feel lucky to find a piece from the 20s or 1800s. I have all these black and white pics of my family from over a hundred years ago and I think how I wish I had or knew where those dresses and necklaces were today.
I love stitching by hand so I`d like a project/pattern that`s instructed from start to finish by hand.
I love it when vintage comes back around and back into fashion so I`d love to see some key things and styles from the past come back in.
since childhood all my sewing, hemming, and alterations have been done by hand b/c anything electronic or mechanical goes wrong for me. Maybe a little more knowledge and confidence is all I need.
wow aren`t the pics gorgeous? I`d wish that in the future trends would spin back around somewhat to corsets like these... you`d have to have such money to afford the detailed corsets and then the wardrobe to wear with them.
I`m going to make some cotton sundresses that look kind of vintage
I`m a beginner sewer but prefer to do needlework by hand so learning some couture-inspired techniques would be great.
Dior would be my favorite, i love the gowns especially the vintage
i`m obsessed with the victorian period of dress... everything from Queen Victoria to Gone with the Wind. I`d love to see the techniques used and modify them to projects i have.
i've only just started experimenting with things like this. so far i have mainly tried reconstructing vintage clothes into modern styles and i've tried draping techniques turning vintage silk scarves into dresses and summer tops... but i could use a lot more help.
i love to make jewelry (cuffs, bib necklaces) using beadwork embroidery by hand. i love the dresses and tops that incorporate this technique around the neckline.
skirts, and i`m going to try to create this cute cat pillow/stuffie i once saw
