Re: How to Miter the Inside Corner of a Hong Kong Finish

it is a beautiful finnish and please forgive my ignorance but...what type of garment would you use this technique on please

Re: How to Make Ribbon Trim

wow this makes me think of the beautiful night gowns and robes my grandmother used to wear. They looked sort of like a négligé soft and billowy but not see through and the gowns were beautiful. In fact she would wear a lace "mañanita" or morning jacket for modesty sake when the Dr would come to see her either in the hospital or at home when such was the norm. mañanitas are waist length, the one i liked the most was dusty rose and pale gray lace over the top that draped very soft.
This article has brought back a flood of such pleasant memories.

Re: Slashing Just for Fun

well the way i see it its not about what Kenneth looks good in (he likes it and that is fine) it is about a new idea and how to do it right and then make it your own. Put ribbon through it or dont wear it or not, above the knee or below.
I think a denim jacket would look fun using that technique.
Wow creativity, Isn't it great?

Re: From Botch Job to Beautiful in an Afternoon!

the jacket that you pared up with the vest is exquisite I would love a view of the sleeve's embroidered motif and a little commentary from you on it. Did you make it?

Re: Perfect Pleated Edging

Kenny would you please show us the garment? I would love to see the inside how it looked once finnished

Re: Lapped Zippers Rule!

I have to agree. It is super having the photos as an aid but the line drawings are a very important teaching tool.
Please bring them back
