1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Pattern simplicity 1426 - Top A - Newbie needs so much help. on: June 13, 2014 08:49:14 PM
I am so very new to sewing. I can make a circle skirt and thread my sewing machine, but reading a pattern throws me.

I bought Simplicity 1426 to make top A a cute little vintage halter top.

I found on you tube how to lay out my pattern a even cut it.

Now I'm at the part to read it.... Shocked

Step 1: Stay stitch front (1) neck edge and upper edge of back (2) 1/2" from cut edge in direction of arrows.

I figured out stay stitch is just a basic straight stitch, but I'm stubbed as to the numbers." I know I need to stay stitch piece 1 and 2 but this pattern has lining which is also 1 and 2.
Do I stay stitch all 8 pieces.

Step 2: To make dart....and it goes on and on about how to make the dart.
Again this is front pieces which also has lining that matches. DO I dart all 4 pieces

in the pattern it doesn't start talking about the lining until step 4 which states to sew seams.

I think I have a long way to go.

Any help will be much appreciated. Hopefully there is someone in this with me for the long haul. I think I will have a billion questions to come about this one pattern.

Thank you all.

I bought the supplies to do this about two weeks ago but needed to spend another two dollars for floral tape and wire so that I could put everything together. Im very happy with the results. I think I did ok for my first one.

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Recycled gallon jug into cute easter basket on: March 25, 2009 10:07:51 AM
I didn't have much money this year (unemployed) for an Easter basket and I was cleaning my kitchen when I saw the gallon jug and remembered back when I was young and making one of these. I used some lace and ribbon I had around the house and turn trash into a cute Easter basket for my daughter this year.
