I really like your blog. If being a seamstress were more profitable (as I have a family) it would be my dream job. I learned to sew from a professional seamstress as a child and have been in love with sewing for a long while. I find your blog very interesting and well put together. Your fashions are so unique! Thank you for your tutorials and sharing your knowledge.
Hello. I just discovered you from your wonderful Vintage May dress. That is fabulous. I want to add my voice to the crowd of people saying please. Even if you don't draft a pattern, could you do a tutorial with that amazing treatment on the front?I'm now following you by email. Looking forward to future posts.Lou Ann
Hi how do I make the Vintage May dress please, gorgeous, Fi.
That is a very big question with no short answers to :-) The pattern is self-drafted and I do not know if you have any pattern drafting experience at all? But it's about slash and spreading the neckline for then to gather it again with shirring. I made many muslins to get it right :-)
can you sew this lovley pink vinyl raincoat for me?
Sorry, I only sew for me and my family :-)
Mie,I really like a lot this blue japanese tunic you made. Would u please sew one for me? Of course I will pay you. Thanks.
I'm working on the Mouse House Creations Ladies Caroline dress and the pattern directs us to this site for a tutorial on attaching the Peter Pan collar in a specific way so that it does not roll outward. Can't seem to find it��
Here you go: http://www.sewinglikemad.com/2013/03/free-printable-loose-peter-pan-collar.html It's from my tutorial section :-)
Dear Mie,I came across the wonderful tribute, "What I Learned from Mie", and with almost every comment, I said, "YES!", out loud. I have been a professional dressmaker/seamstress for 35+ years, and am sometimes horrified when I read instructions on sewing blogs, or watch videos of a sewist doing things like sewing over pins (shudder), or recommending to stay stitch just 1/8 inch from the cut edge, all in the name of teaching budding sewists how to "do" it. Yikes! Thank you for spreading the word on the correct way to sew - it makes this old-timer feel a lot better knowing there are others out there who pay attention to the finer details, without being "anal-retentive", which is what one of those "sloppy sewists" called those of us who try to do our very best. You're a blessing!
Oh wow Laura....talk about making my day! Thank you SO much. Just like with the video, your comment makes me so happy to know that someone out there appreciate my efforts ;-) Thank you!
I love your comments.Thank you!
