from 9.20 Home Dressmaking
Patterns and material are so expensive - is it still cheaper to make than to buy! flimsy fabrics are fashionable, but how do you line themf How can I put sleeves into an old sleeveless dresst I'm not standard size - can I adapt a pattern to fit me? I want to make a quilted jacket - how do I go about it! I'm still having trouble with man-made fabrics....
Put your questions on home dressmaking to Betty Foster , who runs a Fashion Sewing Centre in Crewe.
