    We’ve all used the wrong fabric at one time or another. I believe it is part of the growing in sewing process.

    jimsalmon commented on the project Bubble dress dilemma

    The dress looks good on you and is worth a little extra work.

    jimsalmon commented on the project 2 from 1 again

    Both dresses are amazing. The v back is a great choice. Flowers and tweed and checks, work beautifully together.
    Are the sleeves lined? Silk or rayon lining may fix the elbow issues.

    A low backed full line bra with a neck strap. or low backed corset would have been the 50’s options.

    jimsalmon commented on the project Pleated Striped Skirt

    Interesting idea and great execution. Stretch fabric and joining two different curves can be tricky. I would call it understated instead of bland, a bright white blouse would really let the color…

    Great fabric choice for the style. If you are worried about the top slipping, you can tighten the elastic or add a thin shoulder strap. Gorgeous top that looks good on you. It would be a shame t…
