I really enjoyed the article on zero waste cutting but was disappointed that measurements weren't included for the Bog Coat layout. Calculations for the Viking Dress were provided and the apron, by definition, takes one yard of fabric but what about the yardage and measurements for the Bog Coat. I'd love to try my hand at it!
I really liked this one not only because my dress is in it, but has some great articles. Thanks Threads :)
Lots of great technical info here. I enjoyed reading about godets, sewing inset corners and the "Project from the Past: Fabric Florabundas."
Love your Magazine, every time i take a peek, i get another inspiration. Thank you for turning on ,my creative juices, I sure appreciate the help. Sew for life, it's like therapy for myself, everyone hope you make it a creative day.
