    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Buttonholes!

    I’m not sure how a computerized machine is different than a manual, but depending on the brand of your machine, you might be able to get a buttonhole foot with measured markings on it. For example…

    Looks great! The neckline was done nicely too.

    I made so many of the patterns from this issue. One of the best “collections.” I think it was originally branded as “Italian” and I wonder why it’s now Havana. Just curious.

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Japanese buttons shank help???

    Do the prongs bend? If the do, maybe the dome could be attached like stud to the top of a covered button? Or, if it’s possible to punch slots into the metal shank part of a covered button kit, ma…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Japanese buttons shank help???

    I haven’t seen these, but is it possible that there is a base or something that the prongs are designed to fit into? I’m thinking of buttons that have a dome top, but then they are glued to anothe…

    jenss-1 commented on the article Safari Spirit: 10 New Designs

    There are some good basics here. I like the two Ts and the side ruched dress particularly (though I would probably go for a deep color rather than khaki). The pants, though…a nightmare returnin…

    Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any improvement to the searches (as far as I can tell). I am glad to see that Burda is adding some of the patterns available on the German site. But, how w…

    This is a really pretty and elegant look. I think we’ve got similar figures and I’m so always interested in your choices, Mary. In consequence, my list of patterns to try keeps growing along with…

    Hmm. This is really a ‘shift,’ rather than a sheath. A sheath is usually close-fitting and tailored.

    jenss-1 commented on the technique Make Shoulder Pads

    Are the darts in the right places? Are they needed at all? For regular pads, the straight edge should line up with the edge of the shoulder, not the other way around. I don’t think darts are nee…

    Nice skirt! I was just looking for a skirt pattern with box pleats and I couldn’t find one that I liked —and so I was really interested to see that you used the princess seam dress pattern to ma…

    One additional step is to wax and press the thread. It really helps to prevent tangles and unwanted knots in the thread. After finishing I also like to reinsert the needle into the fabric and bur…

    Mary, I think yours is fancier than mine! My set is just from the stationery store. Sometimes I get a bit carried away with the pencil choices and have to put a color key on my pattern so that I …

    I admit to having a small obsession with those devices too…! I also use them for making fold-over drawstrings.

    A full set of colored pencils – for tracing, but also for marking my changes to the pattern, distinctively.

    I have seen some things online that look like a spool spindle extension. It seems like the two spools are basically stacked? There are also some attachments made to go into the various holes that…

    Actually, if it is a Burda magazine pattern, then many are available for download in the patterns section of this website. But, if it’s a regular non-magazine pattern, unfortunately, out of luck.
