I loved all the collections, but Michelle did seem the clear winner. Didn't Stanley's final dress look something like Halle Berry's Oscar dress a few years ago?
My favorites were Reese, Amy, Mila and Jennifer's dresses. Hailee looked like an angel. I didn't care for Cate's dress at all. That circle on the bodice was very unflattering.
My favorite non-standard foot is the invisible zipper foot. I love, love this foot. Yes, you can put in an invisible zipper without it but it is so much faster and easier with this foot and I think invisible zippers are nicer looking than standard zippers anyway.
If you do a lot of quilting, a 1/4 patchwork foot is helpful for piecing and a walking foot keeps the quilt layers from shifting. The walking foot is expensive, but it's definitely worth the splurge.
Welcome Deana! I'm a long-time subscriber and I'm excited you are the new editor. I very much like the changes in Threads in the last few years. In the past I felt that Threads skewed too much to older sewers (of which I am one) and some of the garments seemed somewhat dowdy and not fashion-forward.
I like that there are articles for all levels of sewing experience so that my teenage daughter can find things of interest as well.
Please keep bringing articles on couture sewing and more from authors such as Kathryn Breene, Kenneth King and Claire Schaeffer. One thing I really love (but it's in SewStylish) is how one pattern can be made up into many different outfits. If we can't have more SewStylsh perhaps we could have it in Threads?
