Re: How to Finish Seams on Chantilly Lace

"Good idea." It would make a really pretty sweater or shawl. Keep giving me ideas.

Re: Spring Floral Wedding Gown

"Gorgeous". I especially liked the embroidered detail, along with the darts gives it lots of style.

Re: Video: How to Drape a Skirt

I just want to say great video on skirt draping. I like the way she penned the twill tape on the dress dummy. the waist had tape around it, then the hips on each side, then she put twill tape on down the center front. then she draped her muslin, and made her lines for her waist, then for were her hipline she drew a line down 4". Well anyway I like this method. it mite be something I'd like to try. psfws1963

Re: How to Pretest Pattern Changes with "Minipats"

I think this looks kind of familiar, I took a dress drafting class three months ago. We made patterns for 18" dolls. Before making clothes for our selves. This methed is probably better than the schools methed . I think you have something good ! Posted: 4:49 am 7/24

Re: What is the strangest project you have ever sewn?

psfws1963 writes: I made a pair of pants & jacket out of these throw blankets i purchased at a Kingsoopers tow years ago. It caught my eye because it was sow pretty. It was an olive green. The material was a realy soft fleece. I touck it home and i begain to cut it, and as i was cutting i noticed that the material was shedding all over my clothes and my face. I had to get out my little vaccum cleaner to clean my clothes off and my face, but i finaly finished it all, i finished the pants & jacket.I tried on the pants they fitted me, but the problem was they would shed every time i'd put them on to wear them i'd need to take out the vaccum just to keep them from shedding on me everytime i'd put them on. in the same for the jacket it would shed also. So far that was one of the strangest things i made yet. posted: 11:18 p.m. on 8/16/10.

Re: What's your dream sewing project?

psfws1963: My dream sewing project would have to be sewing pants better than i do w/ no problems. Becuase i always have trouble when i'm working on pants lots of times i make the crotch for the pants to high up. A little while back in early spring i made my self a pair of pajamas to sleep in for spring. I made pajama shorts and a sleeveless top.I did a good job on the short sleeved top, but when i made the pants i made the crotch to long. posted: 7:43am july 22nd
