I currently sew more for my daughter and granddaughter than myself these days. Recently, I've been having difficulty fitting pants, particularly because of the low-rise styling that is so popular with the younger set. Being able to make customized patterns would be wonderful.
I've been sewing for many, many years and have collected an assortment of sewing books and articles. A Louise Cutting DVD set would be a great start of a DVD library. One is never too old to learn new techniques!
