    scormeny commented on the article September 2014 Favorites

    I know that sewists love the asymmetrical moto jacket because it’s a strong pattern and very on-trend, but I can’t help thinking, every time I glance at the photo, that some people may believe it’s…

    scormeny commented on the article How-To: Sewing a Built-In Bra with Cups

    As a D-cup woman who has never found shelf bras or built in bras sufficiently supportive, I think it’s safe to assume that if you don’t find built-in bras on ready-to-wear supportive enough, you wo…

    scormeny commented on the article Sewing as a Protest

    Thanks for this, Peter! Very well put.

    I also feel very much like @margaretchandler: for me the sewing and the secondhand and MitUSA shopping are very personal forms of protest. I don’t mind ta…

    scormeny commented on the project Men's Shirt Pattern on Her

    Sorry, am I the only person looking at these photos and wondering why, on a sewing-related website, your model is wearing a shirt that can’t apparently be buttoned all the way up without serious ga…

    scormeny commented on the article Sewing Vintage: My Essential Supplies

    As for muslin, I would suggest getting bleached muslin rather than unbleached. It does not tend to stretch out of shape as much as you work with it.

    I’m going to buy some Swedish Tracing Paper no…

    scormeny commented on the article Beginner's Mistakes

    Apparently we’re all entitled to Beginners’ mistakes, I wish we could be more supportive about them. But in the harsh spirit of the times, let me say that the dissing of Victoria Rowell’s dress as…

    scormeny commented on the article BurdaStyle Book? Your Opinion Needed!

    It should be “Our Bodies, Ourselves” for sewing — your toughest sewing questions answered, lots of basics on how to sew, lots of sisters-sewing-it-for-ourselves affirmation.

    scormeny commented on the article Top Ten Sewing Accessories You Can’t Live Without

    The only one I don’t have now is a loop turner. I do not use a magnetic seam guide because my machine is a “computer” machine (Bernina Activa 130) — I think that you’re supposed to avoid magnetic…

    scormeny commented on the article Fall Fashion Forecast 2009

    Thanks for these excellent references! I’m really enjoying what seems to be resurgence in earth-toned tie-dye and other natural references. It’s like a very sophisticated nod to the styles of the …

    scormeny commented on the technique A Ruffle Overview Extravaganza

    This is so timely! I’m in the process of creating a tiered skirt, and have been messing around with the ruffle foot that I bought for my Bernina recently.

    Thanks for all the great pix and guidelines.

    scormeny added the project Drama Prom Blue Skirt
    5fd7f0e9291644ff695abdd56410dc1128e041ab_listing

    I created this skirt for an event in Washington DC called the Helen Hayes Awards Gala, and that we all call the “Drama Prom”.

    After looking at the Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 RTW at style.com, I dec…
