    sewingfan1 commented on the forum topic Commercial pattern trouble

    Look up tutorials online for sewing curves. I found a really good one called “sewing princess seams and other treachorous curves” from Threads magazine but it doesn’t seem to be available any more …

    sewingfan1 commented on the project another crazy dress

    That’s beautiful. I cut out a picture of a stunning evening dress with the same effect to the skirt as yours hoping to find out how to recreate it at some point, it’s still inmy future projects pile.

    It’s actually grown on me and i always get compliments when I wear it so must have done something right :-)

    Just reading through what i’d written in my description, i didn’t make it clear that the…

    I did start to get a system for my stash- clear plastic boxes in the loft with fabric sorted and boxes labelled by type (eg stretch fabrics, cottons, linings) and then a couple under my bed with fa…

    sewingfan1 commented on the forum topic not so invisible zipper

    Hmmm, can you post a picture, might make it clearer what the problem is but as it reads to me, it sounds like maybe you have to move the zipper down a couple of mms.

    sewingfan1 commented on the forum topic Jersey fabric stretching

    I’m guessing if it’s a wrap over top then that edge will have been cut on the bias which would make it even more easy to stretch out of shape. I’ve heard that overlockers can cause fabric to stretc…

    sewingfan1 commented on the forum topic not so invisible zipper

    Have you trimmed away the excess of the invisible zipper tape? You could cut them at an angle so the top of the zipper is the shape of an inverted V.

    Haha, i’ve got that issue in Greek but luckily for you I had the same problem (and for exactly the same dress pattern funnily enough) and someone kindly scanned the instructions in English for me f…

    sewingfan1 commented on the project Flowery Matthew Williamson dress

    That’s worrying if you think it looks like a curtain; i wonder what people secretly think about some of the things i wear in that case as i think it’s gorgeous – style, fabric and everything! Great…
