    Anyone else feeling inundated by square space ads? Nearly everyone I follow talks about SS and I'm tired of hearing about them. They have such heavy handed, omnipresent marketing, that I feel wary, not intrigued. If they were *actually* as amazing as they pay people to say they are, they wouldn't need to be on every. single. channel.

    Is there any way you could look for a table to do your sewing cutting and drafting on? I was hoping to get you up off the floor because with the amount of time you are down there working and bending over I thought you might be in pain.

    I just finished sewing a full apron by hand. My felling stitches aren’t really real felling stitches, since I was going on the memory of your stitching and I don’t have a great memory, but it has turned out beautifully anyways, so it doesn’t really matter. I pride myself of the small, neat stitching and the fact that when you wash it in the washing machine, it holds up perfectly fine, I’ve always heard of the method to tell how well you’ve constructed a cosplay costume is to run it in the washer on the highest speed to check your stitching. Also also, I was wondering if you could make a video showing how to make that pin cushion that holds your garments in place. I used my pinky and ring fingers on my left hand to hold the fabric taut, but my hand would eventually cramp.

    Now I'm a guy so I'd need to find some girl willing to give her measurements for the dress, because I'm inspired. I'd like to try to put the zipper on the front and hide it under extra fabric and nice fabric covered buttons, like on a 18th century vest.

    Just catching up & haven’t watched in a while. What a gorgeous dress! And watching your adventure as you were making it was really fun! I love “old” things too...just not quite as much as you and I’m a entry-level intermediate sewist and drawn toward the easy stuff. And I avoid hand sewing if at all possible (plus I’m 62 and have got some painful joints....so☹️). We do travel to NYC usually a couple of times a year as my hubby was born & raised in Brooklyn, so maybe the next trip, I’ll ditch the hubby and spend my time there being a fabric store tourist. I’ve been to Mood, one time, but just too look. It feels quite overwhelming but a kick too, just to behold all the beautiful fabric. Thanks for your great videos!

    Thanks for your great video! So, is it okay to use a late Victorian walking skirt pattern for an (historically correct) Edwardian walking skirt? I am currently trying to figure out if I can do that! None of the Edwardian fashion plates show that kind of skirt, but if you look at street photos from the Edwardian era, it looks like a lot of women kept wearing exactly that style. I'm trying to find out if there were any significant changes of if it's basically just the same skirt, but it's hard to find info on that. Any advice would be helpful! I also love the idea of "historybounding", i.e. adapting historical garment styles to modern wear, something I'd really like to do more of! So thanks for the inspiration to do that!

    In knitting, one way of changing yarns is to knit with both threads for about 3 stitches, saves weaving in or makes for a stronger connect. The way She goes back over the stitches with the new thread appears to me to be along the same lines. The use of a name, material handling or design etc... that someone would use in one realm within another is interesting and I find myself wondering about the why of it all.

    Ms Banner - You could not be more right if you stood on your head. Drawing is a SKILL that can be developed through PRACTICE. Banner Fans - Like the sketches she showed us, drawing people you see on the subway (or wherever) are great subjects. A tree you see in a park. A car in a parking lot. A house at the end of the block. Draw your face from a mirror. Hey, draw your own feet and hands! Use a sketchbook; start at page 1; draw frequently. By the time you finished that book, you WILL see an improvement on the last page. The same thing will happen when you get to the end of the next sketchbook, etc, etc, etc. Experiment with pencils (try the sharpened tip, try the broad side), charcoals, chalk, pens, watercolors, pastels, markers. You can even sketch with acrylic paint on sketchbook paper (it dries very quickly). We all know what watercolors are from elementary school. We all probably used tempera paints, from those really big bottles, as kids, too. Gauche is kinda like a cross between tempera and watercolor. However it's a much finer texture than little-kid-tempera and comes in many more colors. You use regular watercolor brushes with it. Even if you don't want to try gauche, a tube of the white will sometimes be very useful to use over top of watercolors for fine lines, etc. The better the paint brand, the more pigment is ground up and added to the paint binders. This means that better quality paints will cover much better than cheap, thin paints. As Ms Banner says, buy the good stuff. Treat your brushes with great care (and right away!) and they will last a very long time. You will need separate brushes for the water-based paints vs oil or acrylics. Here are the Windsor & Newton company's brush-cleaning instructions - www.winsornewton.com/na/discover/tips-and-techniques/other-tips-and-techniques/care-and-cleaning-of-brushes-us Draw, draw, draw.

    I doubt anyone will see this or answer, but if anyone out there knows, what is a safe and or recommended age to begin wearing a corset? After doing a reasonably quick google search I found that in history, girls began wearing corsetry around the age of 13-15 and I wonder if this was because it was when it was safest for their growth?

  • Diane Sawyer Dooley
    Diane Sawyer Dooley 6 hours ago

    So... there actually is a way to hold the seam allowance so you can whipstitch it down without having the whole garment bunched up in your hand. You fold the fabric back so the folded seam allowance and newly folded edge are even, and then whipstitch through the top thread or two. The way I do it, the visible stitches on the right side are perpendicular to the seam line, rather than parallel, and you do need to press the seam afterwards to get that small crease out, but that's really no big deal in the grand scheme of things, and a small price to pay for not having an enormous wad of fabric bunched up in your hands while trying to sew neatly. You can probably change the angle at which the thread is shown on the right side of the work, but since the stitching has rotted away in extant fragments from my preferred time period (Viking Age), we can't really be sure what's correct. You can see my handout on seams here: wix.to/PEAYA3U

    You will be interested to know that there are no other stores of this type of supply (I mean in particular linen thread) on the Web, at least in Europe. For me, living in Italy is impossible to buy from the site you suggested, because I would pay about $ 20 for a spool of $ 2.50 wire! Frankly I find that a gap so heavy in a geographical area such as Europe is heavy .. to try to find (and it is not said we can) two-string bi-vis linen thread embarking on "journeys of hope" (sic ) to large cities, thus negating the hypothetical product savings! Do you know any solutions that can help those who have the same problem as me? Thanks. I always follow you, you gave me the passion for sewing! :)

    oh! what a lovely video again- i have benefitted from the three historical stitches one before, so this will surely come in just as handy. i especially appreciate the little tips and tricks you share throughout your videos, so here’s a tip for you! tigers balm, or china balm, the name changes depending on where you live honestly; the real deal usually is chock full of menthol, camphor, capsicum, and some essential oils to really help relax your muscles. during winter, i spend hours every day writing, and during summer, working in the garden; so i use this cream almost daily. its so good on sore muscles and joints, and if you massage some on before bed, rids you completely of any overworked-muscle pains! thank you so much for these amazing videos, my family is always impressed with the things i sew or mend, and i keep telling them i “learned it from the internet” but mostly, i learned it from you :) take care!

    It helps immensely! Thank you for making this! Also, as someone who went to massage school, I can suggest what we do for wrist/hand care. Soak your hands/wrists/forearms in warm or hot water before you begin to work, and then soak in ice water when you're done working. The former warms up your muscles and tendons, the latter reduces inflammation. I also do warm up exercises before and stretching during, as well as after, any wrist or hand work.

    Thank you so very much for your tutorial. Much needed by me to finally repair and sew permanently the long side of a favorite caftan. My one observation is, why the use of the background music. The loud volume for me competes with your marvelous narrative and the valuable material you are giving us. This makes it quite challenging to focus on the instructions being presented. I hope this is something you might consider in future videos.

    My modern synthetic tights thank you for this ❤ I usually sit down once every few months and mend the toe holes in my tights and socks, and I used to use lazy big stitches, but now i practise little ones and the difference is immense. Big stitches- you can easily feel where they are, often get tucked into that gap between your nail and toe, generally semi uncomfortable for first 5 minutes Small stitches - last much longer, comfortable, not as easily tucked into afore mentioned gap, look so much neater (as it's only for me I'm always like eh fuck it, but actually so satisfying looking at a neat darn?!)

    Lovely, darling Bernadette, would you by any chance consider doing a video on pattern matching? I’m in so many sewing groups where everyone compares techniques, and yet somehow they all escape me. I’m afraid I’m a terribly visual person. The good news is, all the other concepts that confounded me, such as on the straight/on the bias, all make perfect sense to me after watching your videos, where you describe these a number of ways. However the strategy of cutting my pattern pieces out of my fabric, while ALSO making the fabric print match up, is enough to drive me to tears. I just know I’ll finally understand if you show some examples!

    My grandmother taught me to do hand stitches. She grew up back out of the way on a mountain and I doubt they had a sewing machine. By the time I was a little girl, she had a treadle machine that she also taught me to use. I had never heard of using a Taylor's ham to anchor the fabric to maintain tension. This would be so much easier on the hands and make the work more enjoyable. You taught me that and about thread so you can be proud of yourself since I am old enough to be your grandmother. I will tell you that thread knots and tangles much worse now than it did when I was a girl whether it is waxed or not.
