Sewtionary: New Posts Added!

Happy Saturday, everyone! I wanted to point out a few new posts that have been added to the Sewtionary recently.

Click on any of the topics below to go to the original post, or click here to go to the Sewtionary:

Have a suggestion for the Sewtionary? Let me know in the comments!

Also: I was absolutely blown away by the thoughtful comments you guys left on yesterday’s post. . I had no idea so many people would offer their kind words and support. My intention was just to let you know why I’d be sewing so much, so you didn’t wonder how it was humanly possible to sew that much as a normal, working 9-to-5 employed person. Thanks so much for the encouragement! It means a lot to me and definitely helped cheer me up and cheer me on

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend so far!

    Here’s an idea for your sewtictionary — pockets! I have problems reading the pattern directions and usually refer to books, or other online sewing sites. I found one sewing site that also suggests adding stay tape or twill tape to the pocket edges to add strength. Anyway, I think other beginning sewers would benefit from a tutorial from you, as yours are well executed and easy to follow. By the way, I added a waist stay after a serging disaster left my waist looking pretty sad. I don’t serge and asked my daughter to serge the edge. Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out as nicely as the neck edge area (she accidentally cut into the skirt fabric). I ended up resewing the waist from below the serging accident to to the end of the skirt. Afterwards, I added the waist stay, and now it looks nicer, plus is doing it’s job to take weight off the waist when worn. So, besides doing it’s job, the waist stay made an ugly disaster look better. I had considered adding the technique to my skirt before the disaster, then realized it was a necessity. Out of a disaster came a learning opportunity. Thanks for the tutorial!

    Ooh, I’m excited about that waist stay entry. It could prove very useful someday!

    Pockets – great idea! I was racking my brain and can’t remember making many things with pockets recently. Definitely will do some pocket posts the next time I make them!

    Glad the waist stay tute was helpful! It sure does make the inside look prettier :)

    Love your blog and the darling clothes you sew up. Your blog is very organized with catagories. May I suggest a section called tutorials so it is easy to find all your helpful instructions? I love the great tutorial you did on the hand picked zipper. Great photos and explanations.
