Are there any good tutorials or instruction you would recommend on making a t-shirt quilt? It seems like a good way to re-purpose t-shirts that are no longer worn, but they are costly if you pay to have them made.
I’m not sure how to fix a skirt that rides up in the back. I’m making this kilt style skirt and she’s full in back of the hips which causes the garment to be low in the front and high in the back. How do you fix this so the hem line is level all around. I want to avoid cutting the bottom finished edge because it’s a plaid fabric so the plaid design needs to be level at the bottom. Thank you for any help.
I have been asked by a friend if I can sort out a bulging zipper on the back of a skirt. My first thought was that the lining, attached to the bottom tail of the zipper was the cause, but looking again, and at a few other shirts, I’m not so sure now. Here it is on the dressform – it looks even worse when she wears it. Do you have any suggestions as to cause/solution for this problem? It’s a stretch fabric. Thanks.
Hi, I want to make a jacket like this for a Christmas present. I’m not accomplished enough to make my own pattern. Anyone have any pattern ideas for this?
