    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…

    jenss-1 commented on the project wrap top @ pencil pants

    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…

    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…

    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"
