    Hi! It seem that I can’t reply to a reply, so I will react to your comment on the jacket here. Despite the great results shown by , I would say: If you want to sew yourself a first jacket, don’t use 100% polyesther. Wool blends don’t have to be very expensive, they often cost about the same as poly and are much easier to work with. And find interfacing stuffs to match your fabric. Seeing you are from New York, you could take a look at Peter’s blog and some of the blogs displayed in its sidebar to try sources of affordable fabric. And over here blogger Sherri is having a RTW-style jacket sew-along which could be of great help. Good luck with you jacket!

    Hey,

    I saw that you were considering making the top from April’s issue with the ruffles. I was thinking of doing the same, but the instructions for the ruffles seem so confusing. And I am making a sheer garment right now…I am finding the material is difficult to work with so I want to avoid sheer material for now. What other material do you think would work for this pattern that is a bit easier to work with?

    Hello, I thank you for your post on my wall. I don’t mean to upset anyone but I do somewhat enjoy the blowout my comment caused: it’s good to get views and opinions out there. I sitll believe that a size is a size and shouldn’t carry either positive or negative connotations. And that not everywhere are shapes and sizes the same (US vs Europe vs Asia) so “regular” does not mean the same to all. In fact, I carry a EU36/38 and was considered a “plus” size in Bulgaria and couldn’t find clothes! The fact that my comment hurt you (and, unfortunately, someone else, I believe) indicates that there is indeed a lot of mixed emotions around the issue. I should have been more understanding – I suck at tip-toeing around things.

    So, thank you for your comment, it’s good to learn how to express opinions without being mean.

    Thanks for your comment on my grey Burda dress! In response to your question, I think there are a lot of tips and tricks out there for making crisp pleats (like ironing the folds over a piece of cardboard or something), but for me and this dress, I think it came down to two things. 1) Wool suiting holds pleats really well- just use a lot of steam. 2) Baste, baste, baste! All the pleats were stitched through the hip, and then basted from there down to the hem. I have heard that you can also get pleats to stay if you spritz them with white vinegar before pressing, but I didn’t do that. I have also heard that fabrics with some synthetic content hold pleats well. Thanks again and happy sewing!

    Hi ncn6, Thank you for your comment on my Ute variation. I didn’t mention it over there, but your lovely piped Ute made me try out the pattern :).
