Sew a Lace Bolero or Shrug
The traditional season for weddings and prom festivities, late spring to early summer, brings great joy and new excitement as many bride-to-beís and young lady prom goers search for a gown, often opting for the sheer elegance and sophistication of a revealing neckline and bare shoulder look.

Sewing with Selvages
Sewers have often been instructed by pattern layout details to not use the fabric selvage edge, a word combined from self-edge, which was expected to be cut off and discarded. These factory loomed finished edges today no longer fill the waste basket or cutting room floor but have surprising uses.

Boot-cut to Skinny Jeans
The stiff, cuffed dungarees of the past used by cattlemen and miners, the 1950s and 60s youth subculture that adopted denim jeans in defiance, the bell-bottoms of the 70s and onto todayís boot-cut and skinny fashionably ripped jeans, these popular slacks experience never-ending fashion adjustments.

Basics of Home Sewing Patterns
A printed paper sewing pattern is like a road map; the directions on getting from one place to another are all tantalizing provided, but itís up to the reader to interpret and make sense of how to get from map point A - You Are Here, to map point B - Unfamiliar There.
