    jenss-1 commented on the project Lace up Wellie Warmers

    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…

    jenss-1 commented on the project my waterfall dress 08/2011

    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…

    jenss-1 commented on the article Vote on the Top Three picks in our Member Model Challenge

    I’m not sure why the disconnect. I’m just trying to say that I hope everyone plays nice. I have nothing to do with the management of the competition and have no idea how it was done. Just here t…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Darts

    Darts are a key fitting element and it’s well worth getting a sewing book that has good information on this topic. Or consider taking an online course on dress fitting. It’s one of those things …

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic "trace the hem facings as separate pattern pieces"

    It’s an alternative to a regular folded hem. The facing pieces mirror the opening that they are being sewn to–in this case, the pants’ leg hem. Basically, you would stitch the facing piece to t…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Selling a dress made from someone else's pattern?

    There’s a lot of misunderstanding here. To clarify, you can’t photocopy a pattern IMAGE (the actual tissue or PDF) and sell it (in the US). The actual picture on the paper/pdf is a "graphic work…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Selling a dress made from someone else's pattern?

    It’s an interesting subject and it differs depending upon the country and its copyright laws. In the US, fashion designs cannot be copyright protected. So, by extension, I don’t believe that ther…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic What would this skirt be called??

    I would call that a handkerchief hem skirt. I think they were briefly popular in the 80s, but I haven’t seen one in a recent pattern that I recall–sorry! Maybe consider adapting a skirt from an o…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Bernina question, old vs. new presser feet

    One thing I have learned is that there are a lot of fakes out there – in varying quality. I recently bought a felling foot on ebay which was listed as authentic, but I am fairly certain it is not….

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Awesome sewers: I need help!

    Oh ya, unfortunately those look like typical Burda instructions. Is there some particular part(s) that you are stuck on? I haven’t made this skirt myself, but you may get more responses if you re…

    Beautiful costume & the front ‘scallops’ are a nice detail. I’m really impressed that you took on recreating the dress in the painting—great work!
