Best Tailoring Trick I Ever Learned

Well ladies, I am about to show you a fix for one of the most annoying fitting problems ever. You ready? Pants that feel like they're crotching you to death. You know what I'm talking about. You make a new pair of pants, excitedly try them on, and find that they pull in the front, or you can't sit in them. Grrr!! It's the one thing that can really keep you from getting any fashion mileage out of your newly-sewn creation. I can tell you that there are two possible reasons for this. One: The…

7 Types of Darts Every Sewist Needs to Know

Darts are an essential part of garment construction but, uh, what exactly is a dart? It's simply a folded wedge of fabric that's tapered and stitched down, allowing flat fabric to take on a shape that fits the body well.

BEST Fit Ever, But...

The last couple of days, I have been redrawing a Sure-fit Designs Shirt to make up that pretty red fabric with. I have a pattern I like at my other house, but it isn't doing me a bit of good here. So I decided to open up my SFD Shirt Kit and draw a new pattern. I decided to design a shirt with a shawl collar. When Glenda designs a new style, she draws it like it is the easiest exercise in the world. When I draw off a new design -- or should I say TRY to draw off a new design -- I panic! You…

You’re doing it wrong: Why your hip measurements don’t work

Today’s topic is somewhat of an advanced one, but it’s not necessarily hard to understand. It’s about how to measure your hips. Most of the pattern instructions I’ve seen, including American sewing patterns such as the “Big 4″ and European sewing patterns such as Burda and Patrones, tell you to simply measure the widest part of your […]

Cozy Bed Jacket and Silk Panties Patterns

Here are a couple of patterns for the lady of the house. A cozy bed jacket and a pair of silk panties. The bed jacket can be made without cutting a paper pattern but it might be easier for the less experienced seamstress to make a paper pattern first. One suggestion for this bed jacket was wool challis but I think a lightweight polar fleece would work too and would be so soft and cuddly on a cold winter morning. You can trim the edges with a buttonhole stitch as indicated below but trimming…

I recently found this old textbook that I've been searching for for years. It's a book on Pattern Drafting & Grading from Fashion Design School. It's from 1977, but the designs are decades older as you can tell. I was sad thinking it was gone forever especially since I couldn't remember it's title. I'm glad to have it back, there are a few tops in it I really love.
