How to sew Jeans




How to sew Jeans.


This is perhaps the most daunting yet the most satisfying garment you can ever master. Jeans are  personal and we all have differing views of what the perfect pair should look like.
Get them right and I guarantee that you will love them so much that you will never buy another pair again. I know I won't

The dress that almost didn't happen - a beautiful 1940s Tea Dress by New Look

A Minerva.com post



This lovely dress , New Look N6594 very nearly ended in the bin,




( to find out more about the fabric go to this link on Minerva.com My 1940s tea dress in cotton poplin )


It is a 1940's WW2 Style Tea Dress ,looking at the pattern I feel it is more American in design rather than British as our clothing restrictions were much less forgiving than in America where just about the only clothing restricted was anything made from leather as it was needed for sadddles and so on.
