    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic vilene bias tape?

    If you want to try vilene, you might be able to find a source online (I bought several yards years ago from a UK seller & still haven’t used it up).* It’s a fusible, very soft but stable bias tape…

    jenss-1 commented on the article Utility Shoot: 12 Updated Patterns

    I made several of these when the patterns came out in the magazine – 2011? My TNT shorts pattern that I’ve made so many times (minus the welt pockets usually) – highly recommended. The straight s…

    Considering what else is out there, I think Burda is doing fairly well and providing some interesting choices. That said, the fitting on this model was not good.

    Ha, just realized this topic is from 2012, probably not needed anymore. Not sure why it turned up at the top of the forum…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Dart elimination

    It is possible to rotate a dart out to a side seam and totally eliminate it that way. (Search on dart rotation). Just make sure that the dart isn’t need for style and shaping purposes. Even a sm…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Thread keeps tangling in bobbin holder and jamming proj

    Two more ideas – make sure you are using the right kind of needle, i.e., a sharp/microtext/universal for dense woven fabric. Using a ball point for woven fabric can sometimes have the same effect …

    That’s pretty much the perfect summer vacation dress! Looks great on you and I think you did a really job of merging the differences in the 2 patterns.

    jenss-1 commented on the project My last "euro" project?

    Sewing is my refuge in difficult times as well, and I’ve been in the midst of one for awhile now myself. I think that an ending is also a beginning, but the transition can sometimes be just a bit …

    jenss-1 commented on the pattern Island Inspired: 11 New Patterns

    Don’t worry. We can buy the magazine in the US too (under $10/issue with a subscription). Those who don’t want to subscribe can get the individual downloads. Even at $5, still a lot cheaper than…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Burdastyle Please Make Patterns Easier to Search

    Still disappointed with this. I just did a search for “shirtdress” and only came up with 2 results. (And one of those results was more of a tunic or shift than a shirtdress). I know that there a…

    I just ordered this book because of this pattern, and so it’s great to see your version while I’m waiting for it to arrive. The pants are definitely wearable! ( and also non-muslim worthy too).

    My best tip is to learn from your mistakes. Everyone gets frustrated from time to time, especially beginners. There are so many variables, from body features to fabric choice. It’s not like I’m …

    jenss-1 commented on the article All About Sewing Leather

    I’d say this article is just a little about leather, rather than “all about.” A few things. You can sometimes put a bit of masking or painters tape on the bottom of a regular foot, instead of bu…
