    sewverytall commented on the technique Frill Seeking: Ruffles

    I wish I’d seen this article sooner so that I could add this rather important formula that’s been left out of the instructions:
    For an average amount of ruffling, use double the length of fabric….

    LOL, all these clothes say one thing to me…if you are skinny, under age 30, and wear high heels, you can wear a garbage bag, call it fashion, and someone will think you look great.

    I wish I understood the ATTITUDE of some of the people on this site. This site gave people something for free for awhile, and are they grateful for that? No. When a small fee is started being charg…

    sewverytall commented on the article Sandra Betzina on Sewing with Sheer Fabric

    Hmmm…the paragraph with the link to Sheer Magic was something I was particularly interested in reading, to see if she does sheer hems the same way I do them. Above Sandra states that it’s about s…

    Congratulations Theresa! Your dress design is very cute and very wearable. Just a suggestion or two for those without sergers to finish the edges of the ruffles: /1/ cut the strip of fabric for th…

    sewverytall commented on the article Can you draw well?

    Drawing fashion is my first step in any new design, and I just love this part. It’s something you can do anywhere anytime with only a pencil/pen and paper in hand. It gets that spark of an idea you…

    High fashion modeling may feel they have no choice but to pick the stick figure model, but BS has the opportunity to choose realistically. This way we can get an idea how patterns look on an averag…

    The Oliso has got to be the smartest iron ever. Mine is so dumb, it shuts itself off in such a short time, so when I go to use it, I have to wait for it to heat up again. I was glad to read that t…

    “View All” feature is back…Yay! Very nice dress that definitely has a vintage feel, but I’m not sure the 90s qualify as vintage yet. I would like the bodice front to include something other than …

    I wonder if the other variations will take a week each before we see them. If so, it practically guarantees that no one will buy the pattern until they get to see all the versions. Odd way to do bu…

    I just clicked on the bolt of fabric in the middle of the USA, just to see what happened [and because I live in the middle]. It showed a listing for Elfriede’s Fine Fabric, but it didn’t list an ad…

    Very nice skirt pattern! I especially like the yoke, keeping it nice and flat over the tummy area, with the pleats falling below. The lining pattern can be used to make a yoked skirt without pleats…

    I think the lace inserts are really a good idea [albeit many people could make this change on their on], and changes this dress to a more formal or party look. I bet that many of the people who are…

    Hi Benedikta,

    I just now saw your reply, and I’d love to expand, although I can’t post a photo.

    On the aqua/green dress especially, the bust dart comes too far in towards the center front. It…

    This dress would look so much better if the bust darts were adjusted and sewn properly. I agree that a plus-size pattern should be photo’d on a plus-sized model. It’s simply the right thing to do.

    I wonder how many people will stitch the hem of the placket as shown in drawing A, incorrectly, even though it’s shown correctly hemmed in drawings B and C.
