Re: Sewing In a Zipper

Thanks for the nice tutorial the interfacing and chalk lines were very good tips. I am going to try them then next time I make a project with a zipper.

Re: Project Runway Episode 13: "Finale, Part 1"

I don't have cable so have not watch any season for a while but I do like the show a lot. From what I see in the photos above, I am not impressed. Everything looks either trendy and sleazy or boring and colorless. This isn't stuff most people can wear. I am so tired of designers not thinking about STYLE and cut and flattering looks. They are too worried about impressing judges and thinking outside the box. What is the box? Most clothes are made basically the same the style comes in the details of the work. The only one that really popped in the photos above was the first photo of one of Fabio's designs. And that was because it fit the model well and she has the body type to pull it off. What about the rest of the real world? Here is another hint for designers. Plus size women do not all like big bulky prints. We don't all want to draw attention to our size. Why can't we get patterns and designs like the smaller sizes upsized in the same fabrics and prints?
