    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: 10 Urban Staples

    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 …

    jenss-1 commented on the article City Noir: 10 Urban Staples

    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…

    jenss-1 commented on the article The Tourist: 13 Comfy-Cute Designs

    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…

    jenss-1 commented on the article Prairie Darling: 13 Down Home Patterns

    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…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Bad Pattern Instructions

    I’ve had a BSM subscription now for some time, and so I am quite used to the patterns. Mostly I don’t even bother following the instructions. Now, for the first time in a long time, I’m working o…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic rotary cutter or not?

    There always instances when scissors will be needed, but a rotary cutter can be useful. I mainly only use mine for cutting things like bias strips, for which it is quite useful. I think that the …
