Re: Book Giveaway: "Threads Sew Smarter, Better & Faster"

Before your start sewing something you pinned always think "did I really put the rights sides together now?"

Re: Book Giveaway: "Patternmaking Made Easy," Third Edition by Connie Crawford

My next level of learning would be pants. :)

Re: Book Giveaway: "Textiles: The Art of Mankind"

It's hard to compete against China with those beutiful traditional satin silks!

Re: Magazine Giveaway: "Designer Techniques Vol. 2"

Claire Mccardell, because of her whole practical view while not sacrificing elegance or fun. Something for us all to aspire to.

Re: Book Giveaway: Dressmaking: 200 Q&A

Don't stress. You are worth the time to relax and think things trough.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Creating a Successful Fashion Collection"

I like to use my clothes during all seasons (the most heated summers and the swedish snow filled winters) and would like to design a fashion line that fits that goal, as well as stylish, comfortable and fitting together. It's so boring to lay away your favourite clothes for several months!

Re: Magazine Giveaway: The Best of Threads Fitting

Since I'm short, I've have had the biggest (no pun intended) problem with shortening bodices - especially since I have an asset in the bust as well.

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

I actually was to buy this book an hour ago but waited for it a bit. A giveaway seams like some stroke of faith.

Re: How to Make a Half Bias Jacket Lining

Unfortunely the file doesn't seem to be linked right.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Costume and Fashion: A Concise History"

The victorian. Beutiful fabrics and silhouettes.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Hat Shop"

I have a hat collection that I display in my living room. I am quite fond of them and I've actually just bought some supplies to try making my own hats. Some guidance and insipration would be great :)

Re: Book Giveaway: "Schiaparelli & Prada: Impossible Conversations"

I have always been fasinated by Schiparelli's interest in art, which I would like to read more about. It is always interesting to read about women to design clothes and see how they interprent their thought and ideas into how they dress themselves.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "All Sewn Up"

I always try to make something. But this year is tight on time. But you never know what december brings...

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "The Art of Fashion Draping" by Connie Amaden-Crawford

A beutiful bodice to a dress. :)

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: A Field Guide to Fabric Design

I would love to read this book! Fabric design is such an interesting topic and the opportunity to be guided in it facinating.

Re: Book Giveaway: "The Big Book of Flax"

Interesting :)
