1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Spots on fabric after washing it on: November 26, 2012 01:30:23 PM
I know this happens to dress shirts when I use a bit too much detergent and the spots are actually soap stains.  Did you try washing it again? That worked for me! Smiley
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: A lil help plz: How do I cut my fabric if my center-back is tapered?? on: November 26, 2012 12:49:06 PM
I think I may be able to clarify the issue.  It seems to me the fold is placed where side seams would normally go, and the back is tapered for a fitted look. The easiest way for me to handle this would be to cut the piece in a straight line but mark the where the pattern originally wanted you to cut; use this as your guideline when stitching.  Straight lines are easier to pin together and sew, then you can just trim the excess fabric after stitching.

I hope that helps. Smiley

As far as I can tell, no really.  I haven't heard of the distinction before so I web searched it and came up with nothing.  If you had a picture to share that would be helpful in determining more.

I'm fortunate enough to have a Hancock Fabrics near me, they have a decent selection with great prices. I only ever buy fabric when it is on sale or at a one of my local thrift stores.  I once found 27 yards of medium weight cotton that had a great texture for dress clothes for only $6.  Thrifting is a way of life, and a great way to find vintage or old clothing that you can upcycle and modernize and give it a whole new life.  Smiley

Instructions are  easy to follow. Hope this helps.

I'm from Seaford, and I do a little of this and that.  I mostly sew, and make jewelry.  I just started selling my creations not too long ago.
