    When sewing silk I always do french seems and use a very very sharp, fine needle. Hope you have been able to fix your pyjamas.

    arisaid commented on the forum topic Trouble Fitting

    I trace my patterns off onto Vilene and use those. I can then baste them together and get the fit right before cutting into the fabric.

    arisaid commented on the forum topic Im looking for skirt pattern

    From the way the fabric pattern lies, it looks as though it is a straight skirt with an overlay which is atttached to a twisted band at the front and straight band at the back. Or even a straight …

    arisaid commented on the forum topic rotary cutter or not?

    Roatary cutter yes – plus a good ruler too. I use a quilting ruler and have a safety guard on it as I am really clumsy. To prolong the life of your cutter once the blade starts to blunt just tu…

    arisaid commented on the forum topic Keep and repair or buy new machine?

    Hope you have found the cords! I took my old Bernina to one place to have repaired and they said they couldn’t do it as parts could not be sourced. Found another repair place and they certainly…

    arisaid commented on the forum topic Pattern size range

    A range of 5 sizes is not enough! Why do petite sizes have to be for only smaller built women? Needing a petite 52 just doesn’t work with Burda patterns.

    arisaid commented on the forum topic Do you sew all your own clothes and why?

    I make my own dresses, tops, skirts, jackets etc. Not underwear. I like making my own clothes for the creative outlet, plus I can get them to fit me. Nothing I have ever bought has fitted sat…

    Kwik sew patterns are good for beginners. Just make sure that you get a pattern that is not for knits. Leave the knit fabric until you have more skills. If available in your area it is a go…

    A rolled hem would be good but as you don’t have a serger ……….

    arisaid commented on the article Garden Beauty: 7 New Plus Size Patterns

    Have to agree with you. The boxy jacket would only make a plus sized woman look even bigger. Pity about the fabric choice in the central panel dress, it looks quite strange. Would have liked to…
