    Please can everyone note that I did not mean to report a comment on this as being inappropriate… It’s my stupid mistake…..thought that pressing the little logo under the message would allow me …

    textilet commented on the article Softly Charming: 12 Demure Patterns

    I like some of these- I think partly because of fabric choice! However I wouldn’t put the flounce on my sleeves- not an area I want to draw attention to and I don’t think it is a particularly attra…

    textilet commented on the article Attention to Detail: 9 New Designs

    I like these- much to my surprise! Not sure I would choose the shiny fabric all the time but each style choice has potential for all sizes- though I’m sure that when I check that they will only go …

    J…Wept! What is it with the harem type pants- awful!!!
    To be fair some of other designs could be ok with a suitable fabric choice-( but not many of them)!

    At last- something that interests me! Not all what I would wear- harem pants for one- but I like the shapes used and fabrics too

    Does anybody like that peplum? Somehow it looks wrong – I think the proportions aren’t right – but being a bit “hippy” myself I would never wear it anyway. Big enough without drawing attention to it!!

    Also – if you are all like me – you have probably already got similar patterns in your store anyway! – I know I have – most of them from years ago!!

    Blimey – can’t stand that peplum!!!
    Although a nod in the right direction – model seems to have a bit of shape! However as lots of people above state – not exactly Plus size? Just when does the wor…

    Oh shame- I got all excited as the first photo that came up was the jacket that showed the bra underneath and I thought……..oh………. A lovely bra pattern! So imagine my dismay! Although I a…

    textilet commented on the article Floral Party: 10 New Sewing Patterns

    I have to admit that I agree with all previous comments- but in the mags defence surely they are just trying to reflect the up to date styles on the catwalks- and if u look around shops etc the sty…

    textilet commented on the forum topic old makes new

    Maudela were a range of paper patterns u could buy in UK- cheap! I think in the 70-80’s
    Never heard of the second – but Pebble Mill at One was a UK tv program- obviously on at 1!! and I suspect u …

    I think u might need to explain this post a little further! When u click the site- looks like a selling site- in gobbledygook!

    Cotton lawn might do it- liberty has it but not sure if the designs would be what u want!

    Sorry guys- boring and to me a little old fashioned

    I have to say I like these- most of them have potential one way or another- however I’m not sure that I will use so much satin- a bit too much of a shine for me- but they look good if you can carr…

    Well- it’s so nice to see that designers feel that wearing a piece of old carpet will do for us “Plus sizers”!!
    I’ll even be able to do a bit of recycling and use one of my old rugs!!!
    Come off it …
