    sade- commented on the article Très Chic: 7 Glamorous New Dresses

    These dresses are gorgeous, and in the bigger spectrum to boot. While I don’t need a dress right this moment, I’m going out to buy this magazine, because it’d be smart to have the patterns for when…

    sade- commented on the article 6 New Patterns in Sizes 44-52 [Updated]

    I forgot to add that I’m sure some of BurdaStyle’s members with bigger sizes would be happy to sew and model samples should the pattern (and perhaps fabric?) be provided by Burda, or at least offer…

    There don’t look appealing to me at all. I had the magazine in my hands and looked at the “plus size” patterns to see if it was worth buying. I put it back in the shelf, because this is nothing tha…

    sade- commented on the article Grommets: A Hole Lotta Style

    I’ve only used grommet once, to make a sack-style gym bag. I used the grommets at the bottom to thread the nylon cord for the handles. While it wasn’t hard setting them, I think if I were to set mo…

    sade- commented on the forum topic A Virtual BSC, anyone?

    I’m going to revive this to make a suggestion. Maybe what put people off was the price of the software? I have used free website based video-conference rooms before, and it’s quite doable. The imag…

    Lovely skirt!

    For next time you buy a wool fabric, you can do one of three methods (that I know of) to preshrink it:

    1. Take it to the dry cleaners and ask them to steam press it. (This is usuall…

    sade- commented on the article Comment to Win with Snoozer Loser!

    My favorite season of all is winter, because I like the cold weather. And it allows me to wear many layers and nice coats and sweaters. But I also like spring with a not too warm weather, but warm …

    It’s a simple rectangle. Length is the distance from wrist to wrist (plus hem allowance), and width is approx neck to waist distance (plus seam allowance). Hem or finish the edges. Then you measure…

    Great dress.

    I have the same fabric and was thinking of turning it into a skirt, but I think it’d need lining. What do you think?

    Lovely dress!

    You actually don’t need to shrink the elastic thread with the iron. I’ve done it, and as you add rows of shirring, it shrinks on its own.

    sade- commented on the project Paola Plus

    Thanks for making the plus sized pattern.

    I still don’t get why the 4X sizes are considered plus, when so many women are actually in that range. I’d love to see the plus patterns modeled in size…

    sade- commented on the project High Waisted Tartan Skirt

    Yes, completely unintentional. Since I was working without a pattern, and it’s the first time I work with plaids, I didn’t know if I’d have enough fabric, so I ended giving up on trying to figure h…
