Anyone out there in sewing cyber land know any not to miss fabric shops in Vienna Austria? I'll be traveling there in September. Thanks.

smocking at ER

Smocked a bishop gown waiting at ER for stitches in my leg! If only I could just sew up my leg too... My family jokes I can sew anything!

Alteration charges

How much should I charge to hem adult suit pants with a cuff and sew on military patches? I don't normally do alterations. I'd rather make something from scratch!

Not enough time

I would love to sit and put more pictures on this site, but parental duty calls...

Hi! Suzie,
You just made my day! I had no idea I won until I got your email. Right here in my little sewing room I squealed and did the happy dance all by myself. Thank you for you comment on Max's little ensemble. I just love that soft sweet blue.

Nope, didn't get it twice.

My plan is to make the bunny outfit for our new grand. Left the skirt so I could also make the romper so both options are covered. Won't know sex until next month.

I saw a cute rocking horse pic smocking plate - Ellen McCarn I think - would like to get that and make another outfit - but first things first!

I need to finish the bunny dress soon - its for my friend's daughter for easter. That was my first attempt at picture smocking, which was why I took that class. I've done geometric's on bishops in the past, just never learned to stack the cables to picture smock.

You'll have to let me know how the scalloped hem comes out when you try it. That's a technique I've only done on pillows and table runners.

Not the growth tucks but the scalloped bias edge for the apron collar.

No, I haven't finished any of the projects. I have been practicing picture smocking and not having good results. At least I am learning to pleat which is a plus. These are my first smocking projects. I did get the geometric done on the apron front but think I will do it over, it doesn't look very straight.

I will definitely remember to starch well when I do the next insertion. I also want to try a scalloped madeira hem for a dress. Lots to try and learn.

OK, this is too weird - I was in Michie Mooney's smocking class also. Where did you sit? I was back by the wall at the angled table by the ironing board.

No, I didn't try starching well before I inserted the lace - also, I didn't think the directions were quite right - I thought the lace was put on the wrong edge first - can't remember now which was first but it wasn't as neat around the curve as I thought it could have been. Will have to do it again and make some modifications.

Thanks so much for the info. After I looked at the rest of your photos, I figured out which gown you used. I already have the book and attended my first school of art fashion in Feb. Definitely would like to go again. I made the Hope Danielle gown but had issues with the lace at the corner of the yoke. I intend to make another one and hopefully have better results.

I am not sure who left beautiful purses/bags on their site and that is why I am still trying to find them. They are what we call bags on the hip. They have long handles. Hope to hear from someone.. I would like to make one and not sure if they are lined. or with zipper or whatever.. ???

i left mandeville about 20 years ago, moved to Nashville and now in CT. My family is originally from New Orleans, most are still there, we lived in Metairie for about 5 years. My brother owns an Electrical Service co in Metaire, my other brother owns a marina/boatyard on Bayou Liberty. I am a theatrical costumer, just left the professional theatre to lay back a little and am freelancing, doing community theatre and academic stuff. Summer is busy with summer stock.....this is where I put my reuse/recycle talents to their best stretches a budget and the arts are always trying to stretch the budget. nice chatting with you!

Maybe you could bring your child with you. My daughter might be willing to come and keep an eye on him or her if needed. There is a play yard and tennis court right outside the room we meet in, and there are baseball games going on as well.
