I love the plaid one, especially the skirt! I also love the blouses underneath! Well done!

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Thread has started getting caught in machine after months of successful use! on: March 09, 2014 04:12:21 AM

As you can see, the upper thread has wrapped itself around that bar, catching the bobbin thread in the process - with every revolution of the upper thread it loops around the bar, tangling up. I visited John Lewis and the woman in the shop had a look at it, but it didn't cause her any problems and appeared to be 'fixed'. I used it successfully for one night, but as of today it's playing up again. The tension is correctly set and I ensured to thread it correctly as per the manual instructions. Is this a problem with the user (am I effing up?) or is it broken? Thanks!

I like how the pattern is striking but not too busy - it goes well with the style of skirt. Very nice :O)

Hello! When there are pattern guides on printed magazines are they to scale? As in could i blow it up to the right measurements and print it without having to draw it out myself? Example:

Hey - so I make loads of stuff - I've made trousers, tops, blouses, dresses, skirts etc. The thing is I always feel ashamed to wear them, I know all the flaws and I can't bring myself to wear flawed stuff. It always ends up being thrown out, I think I regularly wear two things I've sewn. Am I just noticing flaws because I'm overcritical or am I bad?

Things just never look quite right to me, or there's a fitting problem or I can't get a technique quite right. I've got a fantastic step by step book but if anyone has any info or personal experiences I'd be happy. I've been sewing for four years now and I feel like I should be good by now, but I think I'm not :|

Another thing you can do is make jogging bottom jeans, they're quite trendy here in the UK. You can cut the waistband off a pair of joggers, cut the waistbands off the jeans and sew it on? Ill get a pic.

You could also do the bottoms for the effect?
