Hey Alexus with knitwear isn't it better to use an overlock? I have quite a shoddy machine as it is (students need some love) so was wondering about stretchy techniques. I'll make sure to have a google but if you have any advice or info I'd be very grateful.
Spoke to the SO today who said very honestly that I like to cut corners and get lazy. He said I'm good at what I do but I need to sit down, go through everything and do it properly, no matter how long it takes!! I think that everything said here plus what he said is fantastic advice, so thankyou all. I won't be giving up don't worry!
Hey - so I make loads of stuff - I've made trousers, tops, blouses, dresses, skirts etc. The thing is I always feel ashamed to wear them, I know all the flaws and I can't bring myself to wear flawed stuff. It always ends up being thrown out, I think I regularly wear two things I've sewn. Am I just noticing flaws because I'm overcritical or am I bad?
Things just never look quite right to me, or there's a fitting problem or I can't get a technique quite right. I've got a fantastic step by step book but if anyone has any info or personal experiences I'd be happy. I've been sewing for four years now and I feel like I should be good by now, but I think I'm not :|
Another thing you can do is make jogging bottom jeans, they're quite trendy here in the UK. You can cut the waistband off a pair of joggers, cut the waistbands off the jeans and sew it on? Ill get a pic.
Im afraid I can't make heads nor tails of the drawing but it looks to me (possibly) like each layer is made up of two squares of fabric with circles in the middle.. one side of each is cut and sewn together to make it a double handkerchief skirt?
