1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: An Etsy Seller Using My Business Name on: April 15, 2008 07:03:25 PM
If you don't have a trademark then you don't have an arguement like you said and even if you did it would have to be a very similar product to have a case. I've been on the opposite side of the arguement when I had a dance shoe business ( I still do but different name) and a dance studio which spelt it differently who had a sevicemark sent me an email try to get me to cease and desist. Now I guess she didn't know I was a law school dropout and I sent her a barrage of reasons why it wasn't valid. Servicemark not trade mark, different spelling and different product/services.

Paying priority mail prices and having it shipped first class. Big peeve. Sure I know packaging costs money but you can get either free boxes from the post office or charge a little more shipping to cover it. But if you say it will be shipped priority ship it priority.

For some reason I seem to recall you should leave the presser foot down with fabric between the plate and foot as if you leave it up it will be under some tension and after awhile the mechanism will become loose. This kind of makes sense as when you put down the presser foot it feels like you are releasing something.

Make sure after you thread the machine that you pull the threads to the back of the machine ( or to the side for a bernina for some odd reason) and gently hold them thre while you start the seam. This is quite often the trick.

On the hand despite its cheapness they have focused on the basics so it may be ok. Not brilliant but ok. You have to ask your self are you willing to a be ok with being out $60 if it turns out to be a dud and two be prepared to experience fustration similar to what you experience trying to put their furniture together. I am sympathetic to the fact that not everyone can afford to slap down a few grand for a Bernina ( though it is a good investment )

Unfortunately letting them out will be difficult if not impossible as there is no excess fabric in them to let out.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making a t-shirt fit better on: April 07, 2008 05:17:47 PM
Dependind on how big the arm hole is I would recommend cut the sleeve completely off and use a sleeve pattern of a size that will fit the armhole of the shirt (hint to tell it is fits measure the armhole and then measure the cap of the sleeve. The cap should measure the same or plus 1/2" ( rtw does use sleeve ease the way commerical patterns do and you shouldn't either if you want your stuff to look professional) Lay the pattern out on the sleeve you cut off trying to use the original hem on if yo can to save your self sewing time. Cut it out. Sew the underarm seam and then reset it.

First of all I have to point out that the places where it wrinkles means theres not enough width in the shirt and it have to get slack by bunching up. I'm kinda wondering if you are short or petite lengthwise in the torso ( petite does not equal tiny it is a proportion not a size and you can actually be a plus sized petite)

If your set on altering I would suggest buying a shirt a size larger and tailor down by taking in the darts ( if is has them if not sew in some fish eye darts)

You are a similar size to me measurement wise.
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: underwear cami with support - can it be done? on: April 07, 2008 05:03:15 PM
Best way to tackle this is too look at how shelf bra camisoles are constructed in ready to wear by looking at what's in store. You can accommodate larger than B breast by sewing cups on to the shelf insert using a zigzag stitch around the cups and then cut out the fabric in the middle. This is what I've used in the past for dance costumes. Hard to describe in words I know but I think ones you have the pieces it will make sense.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Gore vs. godet? on: April 07, 2008 04:54:43 PM
A gore is a panel whereas a godet is an inset (usually between two gores)
