2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Industrial Sewing machines (Which one ?) on: February 03, 2010 06:42:17 PM
Hi there!

I am wanting to buy an industrial machine for cover stitching (flatbed) can anyone recommend a good make?  I have looked at buying the Kansai Special or the Juki and wondered if anyone out there has a similar machine and could let me know the advantages and disadvantages of these types of machines and any recommendations of any other brand.

Does anyone know how to line a pinafore (without hand stitching it but by machining it on)?  I have nearly finished making my daughter a pinafore it has a yoke on the top and it flares just under the bust area but I am now stuck as I cant work out how to do it.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Puff Ball skirt on: February 28, 2007 04:55:50 AM
Does anyone know how to make a puff ball skirt or dress?  They were popular in the 80s and have come back in fashion they are also called tulip style I think. I am going to make the pattern myself so I need to know what styleline.  Thanks!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Patternmaking on: March 02, 2006 06:10:13 PM
Does anyone know if Patternmaking for Fashion Design by Helen Joseph Armstrong is a useful book for patternmaking? I would like to buy it but because it costs $102 AUS I am a bit hesitant in case it does not do what I want it to.  I have been dresmaking for about 20 years and am fed up buying patterns that dont fit.  I would also like to do a course online so if anyone has any feed back on a good course that would be awesome.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / On line courses on: January 16, 2006 08:45:23 PM
Does anyone know of a good online course you can refer me to?  Huh I work full time and I have been dressmaking for about 20 years so I know heaps about how to "sew" but I now want to develop my skills and go more into fashion design and patternmaking so I can eventually start my own business (and to get an accredited certificate).  I saw one on the internet called Thomson Direct which is like a correspondence course.   If anyone can recommend one that they found useful, that would be awesome.
Do you know I have rang up TAFE college and they dont do any of these courses here where I live?  Angry They do full time courses but nothing part time, only beginners sewing classes.  Maybe there is not such a call for dressmaking over here Im not sure but by the looks on this website there are a lot of talented  people out there in other parts of the world! 
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How do I assemble this dress? on: January 03, 2006 08:41:32 PM
I am trying to work out how to assemble the top part of this dress anyone got any ideas it looks as though it is pleated.   Huh  (its the long green one!) If you click on it you can make it larger

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making a wedding dress on: July 28, 2005 06:50:31 PM
Im new to this so here goes!

I am making my daughter's wedding dress and I have made a muslin to see how it fits and it fits beautifully but my daughter wants to put a ruched chiffon overlay over the top part of the dress. I know how to ruche by gathering the thread on the seams but as this is over the whole of the top part of the dress I am finding it very difficult to know how to do it.  It is ruched diagnally also which makes it even harder.  Does anyone have a simple way of doing this?  The dress is a princess line seam with a bustier top which has no straps. Help!
