Re: Learn the Four Fastest Flat-Fell Seams

This new thing really sucks, you guys. What is free here any more? I could see making somethings premium, but most of the topics I've clicked on come up w/your annoying as hell ad to join the Insider.

Re: A Fix for a Baggy Seat

Says it occurs for a variety of reasons...? Do tell. I have this problem annnnd the dreaded "moose knuckle" aka as "case of the creepy crotch". My pants, specifically jeans, allllways do this. I'm tempted to jack up the rise in the crotch/thigh, but am scared this will do nothing but give me the otherside of it...the dreaded reverse wedgie...eeek... Suggestions?

Re: Book Giveaway: "Draping Basics" by Sally M. Di Marco

Draping. Making a muslin. The very thought provokes awe and wonder in this girl's mind. It all seems so mysterious. I imagine cartoon mice hard at work on Cinderella's dress. I've thought of attempting a sloper in the past because I want the foundation for a "go-to" pattern I've created. The thought quickly dissolves when I look at some of the instructions that are out there. It appears just too dang complicated. I could use a great book with detailed directions and tips. Hope you'll consider putting it in my hot little hands!
