    Jersey is a wonderful fabric; but why would you want to make such baggy and unflattering clothes with it? Be bold!!! The fabrics are great! they need to be used in figure hugging items that really …

    judypeg commented on the forum topic Tips on Teaching Sewing Lessons?

    I have just given my daughter-in-law a short lesson in quite difficult circumstances. We had no fabric and only an hour. We found a fabric shopping bag, which I picked apart. First we flipped throu…

    Anders, are you sure you have the right pattern? You mention sequins and zippered trims in your post, but the picture I have of Burda 104 is a princess coat which does have voluminous sleeves; but …

    judypeg commented on the forum topic interfacing as a way to reinforce a completed dress?

    Regarding the person who sewed the dress for you; difficult though it might be, I do think you should tell them about the mistake; just to help their learning (we are all learning all the time!), a…

    judypeg commented on the forum topic How to create a pattern for this dress

    Hi there sewingfan1.

    Kwik Sew do a high waisted skirt – KS 3580 – that you could use for the waist to hip piece. Then you could improvise for the flounces. I think once you have your basic skirt piece done it will be m…

    judypeg commented on the forum topic HELP : Gathered Sheath Dress 11/2012 #138

    I can understand why you would want to use cotton for this dress. See if you can find some stretch cotton to give you more ease of movement. I made a fitted dress not too different from this one an…

    judypeg commented on the forum topic How to make a closure in chiffon fabric

    The thread, needle, fabric combination is probably the problem. Also, do you hold the ends of the threads when you start to stitch? I always hold tight to the thread until the first half dozen stit…
