While living abroad in Buenos Aires! It was very difficult to find good quality quilt fabrics back then, so finding the one and only store that carried imported american fabric was really a challenge!
A dress for my new set of measurements wooohooo!
Garment Industry Secrets is the most appealing article for me!
what kind of thread is recommended for this task?Thanks!
My mother in law always inspired me to do the right thing when sewing, knitting or embroidering, but when I'm ironing I always place the ironing table with ample space everywhere because depending on the garment or the crease I move around the table and change from right to left hand. It's like I'm dancing around the table! (my MIL never moves or change hands).
I follow the steps you described before with the exception of the extra collar pressing.
I hate ironing pants, do you have any tips?
Express pocket sound intriguing!
Right now: Bra making, it sounds like fun!
What a great prize! For someone like me this would be a fantastic addition to my sewing library. Thanks!
old techniques are new techniques for me! Lovely book
I'm still watching P.R. I don't know why....I still don't have any favorite, they are so bitter, depressed, angry people. There is no joy in what they are doing. I wish I have a tivo or something like that to FF like mgoldiemar said!
I have used the plastic cable of a grass trimmer from my husband's garage!. The cable is very thick and you can melt the ends.
I would love to learn more about seams finishes and zippers!
from cotton bras to nylon, lycra and modern material bras. I remember also my grandmas' girdle with big fat rubber buttons to hold stockings. I loved to touch those buttons. Also they used half slips all the time. The book is gorgeous, I'll look for it in my local bookstore...uppps there is no local bookstore anymore.... Oh well I hope I win!
I don't like two things: hems and applying bias tape. This is my worst nightmare heheheh!

I'm learning to sew (for myself) and this book would be a great addition to my sewing library!
ohhh what a dream!!!
I like Carolina Herrena, her clean lines are so flattering!
I would love to learn how to drape, I'm planning to get a dress form, so this book would be a great treat for me! Thanks
Lovely! and your friend looks like Bo Derek!!!. I have a question: what about the pattern? Did she design and drafted the patterns?
I've been changing since the 80's. First: flowers, vines, letters. Then in the 90's crosstitch, and now more freehand, more relaxed, cero counting.
I would love to sew some shorts that fit me perfectly. In the meantime I'm sewing pants..
My mother in law learned with the nuns in Morocco (back in the 30's) how to embroider all kinds of home textiles (towels, sheets, handkerchiefs, etc) using monnograms and all kinds of flower motifs. Her style is very elegant and refined and is the one I like the most!
Always press!!! From the Sandra Betzina tv show
Thanks for this tip! I have a question: how do you finish a princess seam in shirts?
It looks great, my daughter and I love fashion of that era.
I need to learn this... Thanks!
