    veesta commented on the forum topic Missing pattern piece and sizing

    The instructions should tell you if you need to draft any pieces (I’ve discovered that I need to draft a belt, belt loops and sleeve bands, even though this wasn’t indicated before purchase).

    Kate, thank you for replying!!! Yes, this is what puzzled me – I’ve never seen an elbow dart travelling all the way across the sleeve…

    Just to check that I have done this correctly. First, I sla…

    veesta commented on the forum topic Inscrutable and/ or missing instructions - please help

    Wow, it hadn’t crossed my mind that BurdaStyle would do that.

    Maybe it’s supposed to be a dress you only wear once??!!! A terrible waste of hard work!

    I will contact Manola – thanks so much fo…

    veesta commented on the forum topic Pre shrinking wool blend fabric

    The iron method sounds like a good compromise, at least I can see what’s happening to it as I go along. What kind of heat setting would you recommend for the ironing? Should i justt stick to the si…

    veesta commented on the article Personal Style: Are You Naughty or Nice?

    veesta commented on the forum topic Where to find lightweight cotton thread?
