    Turns out that the lining may provide the answer. Above the slit the pieces are sewn together, below the slit, they are sewn to the lining. I’m still worried about the transition from one to the ot…

    gedwoods commented on the technique Drafting the Men's Shirt Block

    None of these blocks are perfect – for the most part they are developed for an “average person” and a certain range around this. I can only say, you may have to experiment to get this to work for y…

    gedwoods commented on the technique Drafting the Men's Shirt Block

    You are right about the shoulder yoke, although I have made men’s shirts both ways, with and without the shoulder yoke. Although the yoke strengthens the shirt, it also changes its style, and I som…

    gedwoods commented on the forum topic What sewing books have you purchased lately?

    My favorite sewing books, I think, are the David Page Coffin books – “Shirtmaking” and “Making Trousers for Men and Women” – two very different books but real gems. Coffin’s books are exquisitely …

    gedwoods commented on the forum topic What sewing books have you purchased lately?

    It’s nice to see that my suggestions don’t fall off in the great darkness :) I do like the Pattern Magic books – they’re quirky and give me ideas LOL. I will look up the 17th century book, I too lo…

    gedwoods commented on the forum topic Hiding Fabric??

    I used to make sculptures, before I discovered sewing! Believe me, storing sculptures is much more difficult than storing fabric (which has taken over my house). I really do know that fabric should…

    Great project and nice work! There’s a bit of a darkness to some of your work that I like a lot – having the courage to put this into your designs is really cool! I’m not a dancer, but I have sever…

    gedwoods commented on the forum topic What's happened to the creativity?

    I may be oldfashioned, but I believe that the creativity we get out of BS is directly related to the creativity we put into it. We are lucky to have a team of people at the “office” to help keep th…
