Re: Trick of the eye

I am late chiming in on this but the height of the hat really depends on your face shape. A tall hat on a "longer" face would look terrible. I would wear a higher heeled shoe. :)

TV225 Fantail

Good Morning,

I had a quick question on the TV 225 fan section.
Would it be okay to cut the fan portion on the fold and then attach to the back panel? Trying to avoid a seam if possible.

Thanks. :)

TV 430

How easy would it be to make this a front closing garment? I have to get myself dressed so back closure isn't an option. Thought I ask before I decide to buy.
Thank you. :)

Pattern suggestions needed, please.

I really would like to make a dress like this lovely lady is wearing in this 1879 painting. Which patterns would you suggest for the skirt and overskirt? Hard to tell since she is sitting but any input would be appreciated. https://www.christies.com/lotfinder/Lot/jules-emile-saintin-french-1829-1894...

TV461 yoked blouse

I am so confused and could use some help, please :?
For the front sections is says to turn under 1/4" and then again 1" but how about the front yoke? Does it just get the facing?
Thank you for your help.

TV 324 mash-up

OK. I had a few questions. First: I want to use the TV 324(long draped overskirt) front but will shirr the center and the sides instead of making just pleats on the side. I do like the back panel but it isn't enough oomph in the back. Could I use the TV365(August Overskirt)/TV326 (Hermione overskirt...

Re: TV 461 fitting question

After I re-read my post I realised that it wasn't quiet clear. The 1/2" is in between the bust and neck, so basically I shorten it over the bust to take out excess fabric not at center front. the neck is still the same size as before. I will make a mock-up without taking out any excess fabric a...

TV 461 fitting question

I had a question. Usually I take out about 1/2 " in the top section of my bodices. Do I do the same on the yoke for the blouse or is it not necessary since it isn't a tight fitting garment? Thanks for your time. I know you have to be very busy right now. Oh and I really enjoy following your pos...
