    I love the skirts with the scalloped hemlines, it really adds to the look. And, the polka dot ruffle dress is a wonderful use of that scallop stitch!

    I have that issue and have also been tempted to make those pants! They just look so very comfortable, I could totally see wearing them when I work at home —I don’t work in pajamas, I need to get d…

    vintagerouge commented on the forum topic Any good rotary cutters out there?

    I’ve been using the Olfa models for years and am very happy with them (yes, I have more than one!). I’d also recommend getting one of those yellow grid rulers made for quilters to help with cutting…

    I teach sewing classes and I absolutely love seeing beginner sewers get into sewing for the first time, it’s like their world just opened up! I can only hope that with the whole DIY movement it’s k…

    If I’m feeling uninspired or just not sure what to do next a quick look at my pattern stash will usually get me excited again. Patterns are all about the potential, right? :)

    re: washing…I have handwashed all of my corsets with no problems. I use the flat bones (not spiral) and just make sure that I really towel dry it well before hanging it to dry. You really don’t h…

    I wanted to make something out of fake fur that would look great over one of my vintage reproduction dresses—something for a night on the town! This little jacket has elbow length sleeves and one …

    Cute pics! I love those vintage styles. Searching vintage pattern sellers online should bring up some patterns for sale. They didn’t have the same two-way stretch knits we have now so you’ll someti…

    The wrinkles are usually corrected with the boning although if your model is very hourglass you sometimes get that wrinkle too. I’d put a few bones in and recheck the fit.

    For the bones, you can buy them in pre-cut, pre-dipped/tipped lengths, I usually try and do that rather than try and cut the bones, shape the bones, tip the bones…Personally I prefer steel over s…

    vintagerouge commented on the forum topic Does anyone fancy a corset sewalong?

    Yes, that’s true, but I think you need to go with the actual measurement on this one and then do a mock-up to check the fit. Some people squish more at the waist than others so you can take it in a…

    Bohemiannow, by a “hairy project” i mean one of those that just takes hours and hours of very intricate work or is a difficult fabric to work with, something like that!

    Gedwoods, that is pretty much all you have to do—just gently grade the seamlines out until you match it up to the size you need. Are you making the Silverado, the one without the gores? I’d recomm…

    Let’s see, I have a black Silverado with purple trim lurking around somewhere in my stash, a nearly completed 1880’s bustle (also by Laughing Moon), and…Oh we should totally do this!

    Sounds wonderful, Kate!

    I’m just finishing up a pair of 18th c stays using JP Ryan’s newest pattern. She gave us a bunch of cable tie-like stuff (I’m not sure it ’s the fake whalebone or not) i…

    I also love the Silverado, it’s a great basic corset!

    When I’ve completed a big, hairy project I like to knock out a super easy project or two so that I’ll feel more relaxed about sewing again. Or I’ll straighten up my studio. :)
