Suggestion for THREADS magazine articles
I love my THREADS Magazines. I always wait for it in anticipation. I would like to suggest some articles which I think us sewing enthusiasts will enjoy. What I would like to see most is more articles on the sewing of everyday clothing. For example Jeans. Yes, we can all sew a pair of pants but what about Jeans. I want to see a “class” on making Jeans so that it looks professional and not homemade. I’m especially talking about the kinds of threads here, the studs,the topstitched crotch seam, the coin pocket and the fly construction. What about more eveningwear sewing articles. I would love to see an article on choosing one of those advanced Vogue patterns and then showing us readers how to actually make the dress. In doing so we will also learn numerous techniques. The only way people are going to start sewing more is if they were taught to make the type of clothes you buy in the shops these days. Constuction methods have changed over the years and that is what we should be focussing on, new updated ways on construction. Take a ready-to-wear outfit and disassemble it and show it how to replicate these techniques at home on out home sewing machines.
