1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Madeleine Vionnet dress pattern questions.. on: February 25, 2009 03:31:00 AM
You might be interested in this bookhttp://cgi.ebay.com/Japanese-Fashion-Pattern-Book-Classic-Couture-Vionnet_W0QQitemZ370157037476QQcmdZViewItemQQimsxZ20090210?IMSfp=TL0902102010005r37120
I have a copy and think it's great, I am currently working on a fairly easy vionnet dress.  It's written in japanese but the pictures make it very easy to understand.

I think you stitched the crotch together to form the legs and vice versa.  The long part should be 2 leg tubes and the short part should be one bum tube.    Cheesy

Kirk was worse than a slutty chick, he was the ultimate manwhore  Wink, you couldn't count how many alien chicks he got it on with!!

Your maths is correct, the circumference of a circle is equal to 2 times pi times r.  The amount of seam allowance will effect the circle circumference, even if it's only 1 cm it will change the actual circumference by a bit. You need to cut the circle so that the stitching line is 42 inches.

I think the issue is the the jersey has stretched when you've gone to attach it to the skirt, knits are notorious for this type of bad behaviour.

The grain of the fabric (the way it runs) is the issue with the back seam. Because the skirt is circular you may be sewing on the bias (cross grain) of the knit and this is going to throw things off kilter.

I wonder if you'll have issues here for using the term sew with a plan it's awfully close to sewing with a plan, there was a big issue over at patternreview because of the contest name "Sewing with a Plan".  The contest had its name changed because of problems with regards to people claiming the name as their own intellectual property. Very interesting.

After you've made your binding lay it down over the pattern edge and press it so that it takes the curve of the pattern.  Remember to mark the starting point and ending point on your binding so you can match it up exactly.

It's also important to make sure that your binding it cut on the absolute bias of the fabric or you may get rippling too.
