Re: Book Giveaway: "The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook"

I LOVE Burda patterns and always found that they were worth the extra effort back when they didn't include seam allowances. I sewed Burda patterns for both my daughters and their friends always envied their wardrobes. The fit is exceptional and the designs are timeless. I'd love to add this book to my collection!

Re: How to Sew with Sheer Fabrics

A beautiful seam can also be created with a very narrow zig-zag sewn over a "filler" thread and then trimmed very close to the stitching. I used to sew my young daughters sheer blouses and used this method in the collars for a nearly invisible seam allowance.

Re: Book Giveaway: Threads Sewing Guide

When I was 11, a book inspired me to start sewing. Now, I need a book to inspire me to return to sewing. If any book could do that, it would be this one. Hope I win!!
