The "Press & Sew" Mitered Corner with the Hot Hemmer Measure and press: straight hems, round corners and mitered corners. The ruler is thin, accutate and most importantly heat resistant. Use a dry or steam iron direcly on the ruler with no problem. The unique, non-slip surface hold fabric in place for precise results. You can purchase one here.
Everyone wears knits, and they are never the right length. You can easily hem them so they look finished just the way they were in the store. This could be the bottom of a t-shirt, the bottom of yoga pants or even a slip. It doesn't matter what the knit garment is that needs hemming, this is how you do it. So let's pretend this pink fabric is the bottom of a pair of yoga pants. (You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.)
Imagine one of the happiest days of
your life - your wedding. After the ceremony, outside the church, with
all your family and friends - camera's flashing capturing the moment as
you release doves to celebrate you're love.
We hardly know what to say except "fit really is everything!" Any kind
of an alteration would have been better than this. Oh dear.
This would be on Facebook and Twitter circulating around the world
before you were in the car on the way to the reception.
Le Bon Marché, "the good buy", or "the good deal" in French, is the name of one of the most famous department stores in Paris, France. It was founded as a small shop in the early 19th century. By about 1865 it had become the world’s first true department store.
This is a page out of a volume of The Woman's Institute of Domestic Arts and Sciences Book, Published in Scranton, PA, with a copyright of 1936. I have eight volumes and just love them. They are on all sorts of sewing and were used as text books. This particular page is from the volume on Children's and Maternity Garments. I don't know about you, but my maternity body didn't look anything like these girls.
I don't know how many volumes are in the whole set but the ones I do have are: Ribbon and Fabric Trimmings, Cutting and Fitting, Principles of Tailoring, Sewing For Profit, Dressmaking - Trimming - Finishing, Children's and Maternity Garments, Harmony in Dress, Tailored Garments and Decorative Stitches and Trimmings.
If you wanted to track them down I would think a search in google with the key words of "Woman's Institute of Domestic Arts & Sciences" would be a good place to start.

I got a few really lovely china tea cups when my mother-in-law passed away. This was my favourite. I didn't want it to just sit in the cupboard so I made it into a fancy pincushion that I could see and enjoy almost everyday while I was sewing. I don't really use it, but I have it on my shelf and think it's very cute. I hope it's not some sort of a rare antique because I did glue gun the cup to the saucer and there is a little dab of glue here and there. I filled the cup with polyester fiber fill and tucked a piece of heavy silk over top of it and glued it in place about 1/4" below the inside rim of the cup. I finished off the edge with a pretty pre pleated ribbon. On the saucer I tacked a piece of antique lace, that sort of looks like a lace napkin. I love it even if the cup turns out to be worth a fortune I love it just the way it is!
