1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage Yellow Tulle Lace Gown Repair on: February 08, 2016 07:35:35 AM
Here is another gown repair I recently completed. This had a tear in the lace overlay in the middle of the back of the gown. Most likely this happened when the young lady wearing it put her shoe heal through the lace. This one is not quite as old as the last one, it's from the 1950's.

This is such a sweet gown. Hopefully it will now be worn again. Smiley

As my part time job I do clothing repair to vintage clothing. I love being able to take something that is unwearable and return it to its former beauty.

This is one of the latest rescues done. It is a 1930's bias cut velvet gown. From improper storage the sleeve had ripped.

Most all the beading was still there and the gown was otherwise in excellent condition.

Here is the overall gown so you can tell the area that was repaired.

The original post about the challenge with details and rules repost:
Holiday Family Favorites

Is your turkey drool worthy? Is your pumpkin pie the thing of dreams? What about your ham, is it something the pigs volunteer for? Does the smell of your Snickerdoodles make the neighbors come knocking? Do you have a dish that is something everyone talks about all year? That one special dish you only make during a holiday time? If you answered yes to any of these, then Craftster has just the challenge for you!

Make that one recipe that your family and friends dream of, rave about, or beg for all year. Take pictures of what you made and any in-process steps you'd like to share with us. You must also post a list of ingredients.  

The recipe you are making for the holidays this year (2015). It's probably impossible to share a recipe that is 100% original, or that has never been posted on Craftster.  So, if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project.

  • Post one recipe that was created during the challenge period (November 16, 2015 - January 1, 2016) only, on the Cooking Challenge board. Projects created before this time frame are not eligible.
  • The recipe you enter, must have been made by you.
  • You must post a complete list of ingredients
  • Your entry cannot have been previously posted on Craftster.
  • Post your entry on the Cooking Challenge board during the period of January 2 - 8, 2016.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from January 9 - 14, 2016.

Once the poll is over the winner will be announced.

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and this Craftster prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):

7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Rolled Hem or Hemmer Foot Help on: December 21, 2015 03:24:59 PM
Trying to make my sewing life easier with a rolled hem or hemmer foot. I've watched loads of YouTube videos, and messed with it till I am crazy. One video shows pressing the hem. Well that is all fine and good, but if I am going to that level I might as well just use a regular foot on the machine. Roll Eyes

Anyone have any tips or magic words to make this thing work?
