181  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Un-ruching? on: May 24, 2012 09:53:48 AM
Years ago, I bought a really cute top. But when I took it home, I realized it had ruched shoulders, which I really hate. It also had elastic around the ends of the sleeves, which bothered me even more. So I cut the elastic out and re-sewed it. But because it's knit, the re-sewn edges are sort of wavy. That combined with the ruching looks awful to me. What can I do? Should I cut the shoulder seam, cut some width from the sleeve, and re-sew the shoulder? Should I sew a discreet pleat to hide the waviness? Should I cut the sleeve off altogether? The most difficult part in all this for me is that it's knit. I'm pretty new to sewing. Please let me know if I need to explain this again- I know it's probably super confusing.

This is INCREDIBLE! How do you needle felt such a perfectly cylindrical shape? I've tried before, and I gave up and decided that was mostly reserved for wet-felting.

Thanks! This is a McCall's, M6240 to be exact (if you're still interested). Sorry for the late reply. I don't always have internet access!

My first commercial pattern ever! I am super proud of myself! It was actually supposed to be a dress, but it's waaay too short, so it's now a top. The colors in this picture are a bit off. It's a golden-yellow and maroon.

I have used a razor (a disposable safety razor)  to get the fuzz off a wall hanging and it worked very well!

What another innovative approach!
