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

I would use draping technics not only on garments but also on interior tecor projects.

Re: Interview with Susan Khalje

Yes Corsetiere! That is true. And for thoese who are interesting to see something that is called couture I may suggest to search on youtub Eva Minge "magic" collection" from 2008 wchich took place in Paris, Hotel de Crillon.
Eva Minge[Polish designer] is one of few designers approved by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture.

To CYNRET: Click on and go on sewing guides [on left]. There you will find good informations about sewing with sweater knits. This is my nr1 webside to buy fabrics. Good luck.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Threads Sewing Guide"

Ofcourse, who doesn't want to have such a great helper? For every sewer this book will be like a "DIctionary".

Re: Help!

The right serge will be the one that can sew few fabrics together [not only light wight fabrics....]Plus very important for every sewer is to wear safety glasses [needles brakes!].

Re: Help!

Hi ANGIEA! In my opinion You will need more than one sewing machine for your busines, specially for making curtains very helpful and timesaving will be blindstitch machine plus for heavier weight fabrics you will need comercial machine. I'am please with "BROTHER" so far. Also good comercial serger could be recomended. Good luck.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Draping Basics" by Sally M. Di Marco

For every designer draping technics are the very important tools to express herself. They are like paint brushes for painter.

Re: Suggest a Designer for the Spotlight

I'am another person who ask for Isabela Toledo and Reem Acra of NY. Thanks.

Re: Suggest a Designer for the Spotlight

The Project Runway is for those mass of people who try to establish their line not for high profile designers like:Carolina Herrera,Ralph Lauren, Rachel Roy,Diane von Furnstenberg, Elie Tahari,Michael Kors and many , many more...who admitted that they don't know how to sew and many times[not always] didn't study design at all.
For example; Jenni Kajne who wanted learn sewing, went to Italy to get her skils at "Zegna". Besides Fashion Institude of Technology in Ney York, where are more good sewing shools in US? I"am talking "serious" ones?!

Re: Suggest a Designer for the Spotlight

Hi! Elie Tahari doesn't sew. This days if you want to meet designer who realy sews you probably will have to go to Italy , Poland or France...Very few designers in US sews at all. I'am ineresting about Vera Wang and Andy the Anh- Canadian one.
