Re: Under the Gunn, Episode 2: "The Mentor Face Off"

Isabelle is a train wreck and that is going to mean trouble for Nick.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing"

I just want to show my support for Gertie. I met her here in Nashville for the "Golden Age of Couture" exhibit at the Frist Center and she is a delightful young woman.

Re: Win a Copy of Smart Fitting with Kenneth D. King on DVD

I have taken two on-line classes by Kenneth King on Craftsy--Jean-ius and The Carefree Fly-front Coat. Whoever wins is in for a treat.

Re: Book and DVD Giveaway: Claire B. Shaeffer's "Couture Sewing: Tailoring Techniques"

I have recently lost over 30 lbs and will be sewing a new wardrobe for myself. I have read other books by Claire, and as a decades long subscriber to THREADS, I would like to learn even more. My growing collection of boucle' fabric awaits.

Re: How to Edgestitch and Topstitch a Collar Lapel

Oh! I've learned quite a bit from this. Thank you.

Re: How to Make Ribbon Trim

I am not sure how I will use this trim technique right now, but I will used it. The ribbon is just too cool.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "The Colette Sewing Handbook" by Sarai Mitnick

I have been sewing for a long time, but there is always something new to learn.

Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: "Designer Techniques"

I love the designs of Tom and Linda Platt. Belleville Sassoon is another. Both of these designed patterns for Vogue Patterns, my primary look into fashion for many years as I did not subscribe to fashion magazines. Chanel has to be the all time classic. When I was very young, and too young to wear the designs, Balenciaga designs were much admired.

Male Pattern Boldness is one of my favorite blogs.

Re: Staying a Neckline and Armhole

Excellent help for my bias bound silk tops, most made of tie silk. Thank you so much.

Re: ASG Names Shirley Adams 2010 Sewing Hall of Fame Inductee

I got to see her speak a couple of time here in Nashville. What an enchanting speaker, honest about her mistakes and she shows them to you. It was an honor to meet her.

Re: Find Your Best Silhouette

Peggy Sagers has a much more practical and easily understandable explaination of flattering use of proportion. I attended a workshop several years ago and heard her speak on the subject. She would be a welcome follow up to this article. Like many, I found the article less than informative than usual. After reading it on 3 separate occasions, I took away from it a beginning understanding of the basic proportions of the body, but no practical way to understand and use the information.
