11  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Non-expensive London dressmaking course?? on: October 23, 2007 10:27:59 AM
Hello!  I'm trying to find a not too expensive sampling course (i.e. collars / cuffs / zips etc) - either a short course or an evening course.  The only things I can find at the minute are more than 300 for 10 lessons - has anyone found anything cheaper?

thanks in advance for any help ...
12  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Interfacing - oh dear, i think i might have slightly overstretched myself.... on: October 01, 2007 01:18:23 PM
So, having made a few things, i got a bit overconfident and thought - I know - I'll make a winter coat!  All is generally going OK, but now I've got to the interfacing and I'm stuck!  OK, so...

1) It's iron on - is that as simple as I should iron (and in which case is there a right / wrong side??)
2) Should I be adding it and sewing it as part of the seam, or should it finish before the seam??

Sorry these are probably obvious questions, but I trust you guys to tell me right!

thanks in advance for your help
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Inspired by the reusable shopping bag challenge! on: September 10, 2007 01:18:58 PM
OK, so saw the reusable shopping bag challenge and thought - I keep forgetting my bag - if I give it craft-love I'll remember it!!

So below my customised crafty bag ...  inspired by the great entries to last months challenge, plus things I like and what I see as a nice environment (hey, so i'm a bit simple!)

Its got a bird, a hedgehog & a turtle.  Better late than never!

and sure enough - now I remember to take my reusable bags! Wink
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Sewing with lace overlay on: August 03, 2007 09:54:44 AM
Hi Guys

I am about to start making a new dress, it is cotton with lace over the top.  However, I want to change it a little from the pattern.  The pattern has a fitted skirt, with the lace then hemmed to the cotton at the bottom.  I would like to make it with a flared skirt - however I do not then think I can attach the lace to the cotton inner, as it will go puffball (not the desired effect!)  Has anyone else tried just hemming lace, is it really visible??   Or should I just attach it and trust that it should move with the cotton???   Huh

thanks in advance to lovely helpers ...
