    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 Sewing With 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…

    It’s probably fusible fleece – essentially a thin polyester batting. Try searching online for “fusible fleece.”

    Looks great! The purple is really lovely. I have this pattern, and I’ve been going back and forth about black or not. Thanks especially for sharing your comments about the fit issues.

    Beautiful dress! I have to agree – I like this better than the magazine versions. Pretty color also, one of my favorites too.

    This looks so nice – comfort plus some sparkle! I was curious about this pattern too, but initially shied away from it because of the huge under-bust flaps. (I really don’t need those!) Your ver…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Top-stitching tension, what am I doing wrong?

    Hah, just clicked on my own post from years ago! I’m glad if it helped someone. I would only add this – use a sharp, new needle. I prefer Schmetz microtex needles.

    If the fabric has gotten sucked down into the slot below the needle, open the bobbin compartment and take a look. Take out the bobbin and trim away the tangled threads. Try and carefully remove y…

    jenss-1 commented on the article Fun Facts About Tailoring

    Kind of disappointed. This article is not quite accurate and the word “tailoring” is being used in the general sense as a word for fitting. That’s not quite right – there is a distinction between…

    There are so many speciality fabrics, but I’ll offer this general tip – use the appropriate type of needle for the fabric whenever possible, and especially for top stitching. For silk, satin, micr…

    The metal in my bra once set off the metal detector in an airport. The (fortunately female) officer said, “well it must be a good one!” as she was scanning me. Good, yes, I really do need all tha…

    Cute idea! I will seriously be needing these before too long–will have to check out some of my older sweaters. I’ve re-used the ribbing and other parts before, but I hadn’t thought of using the w…

    Mary, I’m really enjoying your holiday fashion show! This dress might be my favorite too – and the blue is a really nice color for you. It’s good to see your comments about the cowl neck. I have…
