I love fabric and I want to make clothes that fit in styles I like.
My best ironing tip is for pressing quilt fabric. I lay my fabric out on a flat surface and spray it very well with starch. I smooth out the damp fabric with my hands and let it dry in place. Then I press the fabric. I find this eliminates most of the wrinkles and my fabric is nice and crisp and ready for cutting. If I win this wonderful iron, I will use it to press the fabric for my next quilt, and my next one, and my next one,......!
My favorite movie dress was the lavender satin ballgown that
Deborah Kerr wore in the King and I.
I like to do blanket stitching along the edge for decorative effect.
I would like to drape a vintage style dress, like old Hollywood! Greta Garbo style!
I love Louise Cutting and her techniques. I am getting back into garment sewing and these DVDs would be so helpful to me!
Many, many thanks for explaining this WITH PHOTOS! As a beginning quilter the slipstitch is used to attach the quilt binding and I've had such trouble trying to do this stitch. This really helps! Thanks again! :)
