How wonderful to get the names of 2 authors that I haven't heard of before - i know i'll enjoy these books whether I win them or buy them!
I love this idea and it looks so beautifully tailored! I'm thinking it might be possible to do something similar with one vertical seam which takes in all the buttonholes on the front of a jacket, shirt or dress?
I plan to make bias-cut camisole tops for my 2 teenage grand-daughters - they turn an ordinary shirt into a whole outfit.
Without a doubt, the most important tip for me is to press every seam after sewing, before including it in the next stage of the project. When I first started sewing, 60 years ago, (Wow! whatever happened to all that time?), I was SO impatient to get the item finished. However, my Mum drilled into me that without the pressing, all that careful cutting and accurate sewing would only end up with a lumpy product that shouted "home-made". She was SO correct!! My Mum Rules!!
