    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!

    jenss-1 commented on the article A New Giveaway for Vintage Fashion Lovers

    Slowly, I’ve been adding my paper patterns to a database I created on my laptop. Each database record contains the pattern brand/number, type of garment, season, style, knit or woven, certain othe…

    jenss-1 commented on the article City Noir: 9 Urban Women's Sewing

    The jacket would be okay, of course. However, some office rules frown on sleeveless garments, so those would not be formal enough for some professions. I’m just surprised that no one apparently …

    I agree. The horrible image of the black dahlia murder was the first thing that I thought of too. It was also yet another what-was-Burda-thinking kind of moment. Ignorance perhaps, but I don’t t…

    I was bitten by one of those baby alligators when I was a kid. Believe me, it hurt like hell. I don’t understand why the animal is in the photo, and the model must have been worried about those i…

    Cute for summer. Except the bootcut overalls, which are a crime.

    I’m happy to see the shorts and basic tank patterns. I won’t be doing them in sequins, but I hope that Burda offers more casual p…
