Can any of ya'll recommend a good dress form. I've checked the thread on Pattern Review, and I'm even more overwhelmed than I was before. The only conclusion I've come to thus far, is to buy a smaller form and size her up, but could use some opinions on the various forms available for sell.
I have a bra pattern that I want to make, but I know I'm going to need a lot of mods. So I thought I would trace the pattern before cutting it. Only thing is, I'm not sure how to go about doing that. So, what exactly do I need to trace?
I have pattern paper, and a tracing wheel. Surely that can't be it. Does anyone care to enlighten me?
4 ozs Henry Attic Superwash Merino. Sport Weigthish, about 180 y. Used Wiltons, and a little bit of acid dyes for this. Calling my 1st colorway Under The Kitchen Sink, because I grabbed dyes, and just called it a day. No real inspiration at all. Surprised by the outcome, but will always love it, as this is my 1st spin to knit, and dyed yarn.
I want to make my 4yo some pj's and I need to use Flame retardent material. So far my search for fabric that has been treated as such has turned up useless. Is there something I can use to treat the fabric? Or, does anyone know of any online etailers that sell flame retardent fabric?
I'm a beginner sewer, but I seen a lady on the bus yesterday with a dress that was to die for, especially considering she was a big girl like myself. Anyway, I want to make a skirt that mimics her dress. The dress resembled the infinity dress. The skirt had 3 front & back panels, and 2 side panels, 1 on each side. It was so elegant, and didn't make her look any bigger than she was. How would I go about mimic'ing something like that? Do I measure my waist or hips, and then divide that measurement by 8? Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
Last week at work, I was bored, so I had the misfortune on clicking on the thread that contained all the awesome tutorials. Man oh man why did I do that. The next day I had work to do, and I was still busily clicking around Craftster instead of working. Anyway, here's my completed project. This is my 3rd sewing project, following a tutorial. The 1st 2 thingies I made I just sorta winged. I really enjoyed this bag, and see a dozen more in my future. I totally forgot to take a picture of the lining, but it is plain blue solid cotton fabric.
So I purchased a used Singer 6212C from someone on Craigslist this weekend. Naturally it didn't come with a manual or a bobbin. How can I go about buying one. This model isn't even listed on Singer's site, yet 6212 is listed. Should I assume this is the same model as far as manual is concerned.
For the bobbin, should I just bring the bobbin case with me, and see which bobbin fits in it, and hope to buy locally?
How does one go about finding a dealer or someone to repair? It's a dang shame I'm in the heart of NYC garment district, yet I feel so overwhelmed when it comes to this. I don't even know where to shop for patterns.
