Love those pockets, Terri! I've been searching a bit to try to locate a "how to" for recreating. Nothing so far, but I will continue to search.
Good points. I think we can handle the issues if we had a clear fitting process. Our biggest issue is time. Most of us cant devote 40 hours to sew a garment only to throw it in the trash.
Well, I think it's because they all think we are pretty much all idiots these days and wouldn't be able to handle it. There is less "slop" factor in sewing in a sleeve like this. Look at the proliferation of Kimono and cut on sleeves. Apparently we are not capable of too much fitting finesse.
thanks for the clarification....so if I'm just laying the "towel" on the sticky stabilizer, how to I get the placement right?my hoops have center marks on each side. using a pencil or disappearing ink, I draw lines connecting the marks. It makes a big Plus sign frequently called centering lines.. I determine where I want my design and draw centering lines on the towel with disappearing ink or chalk. Place the towel on the hoop aligning the centering lines.
...I just don't fit things on her so closely as I once did.Lol I dont fit anything as tightly anywhere anymore.
... Talbot's jacket .... I wonder ... if the sleeves are indeed two piece, or one. Since it's a summer jacket and unlined, in a drapey crepe blend, I'm thinking that the sleeves may indeed be one piece. If I thought that contacting customer service would yield any results, I'd ask; but I don't think that they'd have that kind of information on hand.
