1  Re: Show me your Fabric Storage! in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by SeeJaneSew on: August 30, 2007 06:31:07 PM
Right now (which is just about to change) I simply hang my fabrics on a mulit-tiered clothes hanger.

I got a few of these at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Cost like $7 or so per hanger. Each hanger has 6 rods. Downside - can't eyeball the fabrics as easily as I would like - but it takes up little closet space overall.

I used to use this type of plastic 3 drawer cabinet I got
at Lowe's.

But it was stuffed to the the point of not being to get the drawers open. So that little cabinet has been relegated to serve another storage task.

My friend Cindy uses these:

Which she stacks in the corner behind a door & arranges each bin by color mostly. She prints off a little label that she can change out when her fabrics change stating what type & how much fabric she has in each bin.  She has 8 total bins - 2 columns of 4.  The clear bins let her eyeball what she has & the bins are easy to handle.  She has a LOT of fabrics too. Bulky stuff too like boucle's.

My friend Charlene uses these:

She hangs each fabric on it's own skirt hanger.  Now she also has a whole closet rod dedicated to these suckers in a whole room dedicated to sewing. Almost want to hate her! Wink~

I'm digging the filing cabinet idea - I like when things are close by but out of sight. That sounds like my kinda of storage.

Hope this might give you some inspiration.  Jane

2  Is this skirt cut on the bias? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by SeeJaneSew on: August 18, 2007 09:23:30 AM
Hi, can anyone tell if this crinkled silk skirt is cut on the bias or not?  Also any advice I should know about when it comes to placing an invisible zipper in with a crinkled silky fabric? Thinking about using McCall's 2129 pattern - I think that one will do (assuming it's not a bias cut). Thanks! Jane

3  Guitar-Themed Skirts: McCalls Skirt Sewing Patterns 3341 & 3830 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SeeJaneSew on: June 02, 2007 10:29:11 AM
So when my husband is not flying the friendly & the not so friendly skies - he builds custom acoustic guitars. Thus we attend many guitar symposiums, trade shows, conventions, etc. I thought it would be neat to have a guitar-themed series of skirts to wear to our next symposium.

I used both McCall's 3341 A-line skirt pattern & McCall's 3830 straight skirt pattern.

All skirts are fully lined, faced waist, center back invisible zippers.

With the exception of the "aloha skirt" all fabric is cotton. The aloha is a cotton/rayon blend.

All fabrics bought online at  both Tonic Living.com  http://www.tonicliving.com and eQuilter.com   http://www.equilter.com. Did a search for "guitars" & lots of stuff came up.

*** Don't look too closely as I have barely ironed the skirts thus they all look a bit wonky. Man I hate my current iron.

So here they are. Hope you like. Jane

Used wrong pattern size - way too big - need to alter big time.
