Alterations and Commercial patterns are synanomous. Basically you can’t get one without the other. I have been working to no end on a customer‘s blouse pattern from McCalls. Horrible to work with for fullsize women. After the fitting it just makes me want to trash it all and start with a custom pattern. I hate all the slashing and spreading. More paper is used than with designing the pattern. And the time spent in this process is unbelievable.
Well today I learned what “Cartridge Pleating” is. No wonder a leg of mutton sleeve and waist pleats looks so good and stands so tall in those vintage gowns. Here is the sight I found the information. Hope it helps. www.elizabethancostume.net/cartpleat
Hello there, I’m new to this blogging and never thought I would blog. But, since I love telling all about my sewing ventures, I had to find an outlet. After seeing so many sewing blogs, I knew this was for me. Well here I am.
I have my own busines website that you might want to visit at www.sew-to-fit.com. I will be putting things there as well so try to keep up.
Today I worked on a blouse and a dress. I didn’t really do much else, accept set up this blog and read about blogging. So, I guess that’s sewing related, right??
