1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / it's so windy!!! on: April 29, 2009 12:13:28 PM
i'm relatively new to the world of sewing clothing and naturally have started with skirts.  oh, those circles are so easy to make, but they fly right up when there is the slightest bit of wind!

i like shorter skirts (okay, "short" for me is just above my knees) and i love the twirly factor, but i'm not a huge fan of showing the world my underwear.  i have this problem with store bought skirts too.  is there some secret formula for how much "spin" a skirt can have so that it won't fly all over the place when the wind starts up? 
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / patterns or winging it? on: April 28, 2009 10:01:23 AM
For clothes or bags or pillows or whatever--how often would you say you use a pattern vs. simply making it up as you go? 

I'd say about 10% of the time I follow a pattern of some kind, 90% "faking it."  I really have no idea what I'm doing, but I start sewing pieces together, change it a little to match what I did, rip a few seams, and eventually end up with something functional.  It might not be exactly what I envisioned when I started, but that's what makes it unique.  I think I prefer it that way.  I'm not alone in this, am I?
