Re: One Hour Art Deco dress

I agree this dress is sweet. I love the stripes on the bias,hand stitching and the neck lining ideas. One day I will learn how to use my digital camera and post my version as well. Happy Sewing, dotty

Re: Make a One-Hour Dress

OK, I am an experienced sewer as well and have a few words on the pattern. How about gathering up the shoulder with elastic, instead of the ribbon or cord...which was never a look that I found appealing. I am not a tie or bow girl.
I was searching for a basic shift pattern when I found this article. Being a full figure gal, make sure it will fit your bust and hips, and if you want make both shoulders the same. Be creative go crazy....try it in challis or snazzy stretch prints. As we say in Boston, this pattern is "wicked" enjoy it!

Re: How to Add Crochet Trim to Any Fabric Edge

This is a nifty and sweet idea. They sell little contraptions to make these holes for you as well. Some folks like to do a blanket stitch around the edge, and use that as your hole and anchor as you make your way around. happy hooking to all.
