    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Wavy Zippers. Swayback? Bad sewing? What's wrong!?

    It’s kind of hard to tell from the photos, but looks like the first ones are primarily a fit issue, rather than a zipper issue. You may be right—it may be a swayback adjustment. I’m not sure why…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Easier navigation. Better notification system.

    I’ve noticed that the site, after the upgrade about 3 years ago, still says “beta.” Maybe that has something to do with it? I would like to see slideshow style tutorials too. I often have proble…

    P.S. The lightweight stretchy interfacing can be found at Steinlauf and Stoller.

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Choosing the correct interfacing.

    Hi Max,
    I don’t think there’s really a set rule. It is helpful just to hold the fabric and (proposed) interfacing together and see how they drape together. That said, I like to use a light slight…

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Inappropriate Content button

    The lightening bolt is, I think, too subtle. From time to time I’ve clicked it instead of the “Reply” and there’s no way to back out! For example, on this forum topic the Reply and the lightening…

    Thank you so much, kate— I thought that you would probably be the one with the answer! I’ll be investing in a clapper soon.

    jenss-1 commented on the forum topic Easy way to add seam allowances?

    In general, I’m more concerned about marking the seam line, and so I don’t worry too much about the accuracy of the width of the seam allowance (except for tricky areas). With tissue patterns I so…

    jenss-1 commented on the article Modern Enchantment: 8 New Patterns

    It is used as a racist word. Period.

    jenss-1 commented on the article Modern Enchantment: 8 New Patterns

    I would like to suggest to Burdastyle that they rename this collection and edit the copy. “Oriental” is not offensive in its literal meaning, but the connotations remind me of the vocalized prejud…
