Hello I was on holiday in Denmark and discovered www.pandurohobby.com they are also online so I was wondering because of the exchange rates in currency where to order Sweden itself where the main shop is or UK or just here ?
ok I admit my brains left me , so for us who are plus size , what yardage do you buy if you see a fabric you like but have no project yet in mind but you want to have enough yards of fabric just in case ? Solid colors mostly. Since last year I lost several sizes due to severe illness and my figure is not what it used to be. Buying clothes in a shop is a challenge. So I turned to making some handsewn garments. I am a E/F cups the boobs grow still due to my medicines. I am a eurosize 48/50 in RTW. Zaftig figure bit of a waist. Any advice? Thanks.
Did anyone make the 147 burda wrapped skirt in a plus size ? I am thinking how to enlarge the pattern but since I do handsewing before I put lots of hours into this since I usually handsew small items I thought perhaps to ask here. I did search but nothing. At least I did not find it.
On some of the posts I read persons mentioning they got their mom's or grandmother's fabric stash or some auntie gave them their patterns. I always enjoy reading such stories and perhaps other people also like reading this. The most interesting story in this category not sewing related is on a bead forum years ago someone told they inherited two trailers full of beads. Oh my! So any stories on how you got that fabric stash from the past ? Vintage patterns ? Vintage notions? etc etc
Well as we are nearing mid april I was thinking this year 2009 how much fabric did you buy and what types of fabric ? I came to this question after just this morning I sorted my fabric stash and looked at what I bought so far this year. Myself 2.5 yards dupioni silk , total of 5 yards quilt cotton fabric in 1/2 and 1/4 yard , 2 yards muslin and 1/4 yard tafetta. I do all my fabric shopping online no fabric shop where I live.
