Oh gee whiz, I think you are right. It looks poorly drawn. Can you contact the author and get some clarification?

unfortunately there is no author mentioned anywhere :S So I would not know who to contact Sad

So, i fell over this skirt pattern, and decided to make it.

But, I am stuck at one piece of the pattern.
It is the "patricia Pepe" skirt.

This is the piece were I am stuck. The first 5 rows. I can sort of figure it out, and then again no.


I think it is poorly drawn, and when I look at the finished product, it does not look like, what I would do.
Can someone please help me so I can make this beautiful skirt.

I'm just guessing but I think that the two red things are disks you put under your thread spools on the machine. And the wire thing at the bottom looks like a finger guard (So you don't sew up your finger) I think you attach yours on the needle screw. The plate looks like a replacement plate. Hope I've been of some help.

thank you! so much.

I will google finger guard to learn more about it.
And I will use my "new" things. Cheesy

So, I found this bag with some stuff in it today.

I have searched the interweb, and - yay - I found out that I have a button foot, a blindstitch foot and a seam guide.

But the other things in my bag are somewhat of a mystery to me - so I hope you can tell me what it is and how to use the items?

The two red round thingies, the bended thingie and the plate thingie. Smiley

You are in luck!  That particular pattern was reprinted as part of Butterick's "Retro" line, and it appears that their website will ship to Denmark! http://butterick.mccall.com/b4790-products-6089.php?page_id=371&search_control=display&list=search

That is cheap.

I have really fallen in love with that pattern.

Thank you for the link!!

Do you know what size you need?

That must be a size 14 (european size is 48 - or a XL). Smiley

You could also try Dawanda - it is based in Europe - but Etsy has a wider and larger variety.

Dawanda? Is that also a site just like etsy? never heard of it. Smiley

Hello.

I have fallen in love with clothes from between 1940 and 1980 and I am therefore looking for vintage sewing patterns.
But it is very expensive for me to buy them on eBay - if the pattern is cheap - either they wont ship to denmark, or the shipping costs $45.

I have especially fallen in love with this pattern.


But anything will do!  If any of you folks could point me in the right direction for finding this or similar patterns, I'd much appreciate it Smiley

I hope I have placed this the right place, and I hope you can and will help.

so every year at new year I want to make a new dress.

This year I made a dress from this pattern:



I used fabric I already had, because I am a poor student.

This is the result:



I hope you like it.

C & C are welcome
