A refined approach to construction and finish. Couture work is always a work in progress and congratulations to Claire.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "Underwear Fashion in Detail"

Inside became outside. Perhaps both will be intrinsic and combined as one unit in the future wilh "software" added to ascertain the lift and heft of the fit.

Re: MAGAZINE GIVEAWAY: "Designer Techniques"

Love Schiaparelli's millinery. Also. Claire McCARDELL for her integrating bags into clothing, i.e creative pockets.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Embroidery Companion: Classic Designs for Modern Living" by Alicia Paulson

Machine Embroidery is my passion, specifically working with artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Angelo Filomeno, Elaine Reichek, Kent Henricksen, Sabrina Gschwandtner, Jean Shin and presently R.M. Fischer to name a few. Translating their fine art ideas into creative interpretations in stitching and occasionally combining with printing has yielded a new and challenging art form.

Re: Book Giveaway: "1,000 Clever Sewing Shortcuts & Tips"

Keep a small sponge saturated with silicone spray near the thread feed so the thread is just passing over the surface. You can tape the sponge fragment to the sewing machine. This smooths the sewing so it can sew faster and tangle free.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Horrockses Fashions: Off-the-Peg Style in the '40s and '50s"

Soon this first decade will be archival so lets hurry to catch up. Count me in before the count increases.

Re: Book Giveaway: Successful Serging

I use printmaking, embroidery, sewing machines and a serger to create digital multiples at Solo Impression. Creatively the serger has possibilities that artists can explore. I would love a copy of Successful Serging for the artists to enjoy and be inspired by. I don't believe that possibilities are endless but making art is editing from the possibilities to summarize succinct ideas during one's limited time. Perhaps this book will review the options so choices are clearer.
