Those effing sleeeves are set.

@Ori: Same. I haven't had time for the sewing group this term, and am rather working on several other kinds of machines in my spare time.

Greetings all sewing terrorists: I am going to impart sage and wise knowledge that I have gained through mine own labor.

When setting parallel vertical rows of trim on a garment, say a red wool wrapper from hell, if the form you are using is crooked and the trim looks straight, it is indeed crooked. Thank god for basting.

Ohhhhhhhhhh, 'cat. I'm so sorry. Are you going to throw a party when you finish the red wool wrapper from hell?

Yes, yes I am. A very loud and rowdy one.

I only have to reset two rows on one side, and only one of those is already stitched. I am going to use a compass, a ruler, a measuring tape, a protractor, a microscope and a particle beam when I reset them.

That's kind of odd. I do needlepoint. Really tiny elaborate stitch work. I also do embroidery. I keep wanting to swap talents with someone who actually sews, but I can't seem to find any who can sew well.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

I took fashion design in school this year but we do more sewing than fashion. Right now we're working on a tote bag, and I can't wait to show it off when it's done. When I crochet I tend to not finish my projects but this year I've been so excited with the items I'm making and finishing (for a grade, no less, haha).

[up] Fashion and sewing are inseparable. Designing something without understanding how things go together can create a whole bunch of headaches. I had a student once who was in a design competition but didn't know about darts. It rocked his world when he found out.

Oh, I understand. But most of the girls (including me) thought it really would be more on fashion and learning about the clothes rather than sewing things like pillows and tote bags like Home Ec. I don't mind, but yeah.

Really, darts? o__o

I have never touched a needle in my life. But I'm very interested in the terrorist activities of this society. Any lovely ladies up for making some Molotov cocktails?

Reviving this thread for a question: my sewing machine is acting kinda funny. every 3-5 minutes of straight seaming, the needle jams. it's as if something is pulling the needle off kilter somehow. the only way to fix is to take out the bobbin, and pull out the thing that holds the bobbin. Neeld itself looks straight.

Whats the consensus: is my thread tension too tight? too loose? have i borked my machine completely?

Sounds like your bobbin race (the widget that holds the bobbin) may be gefracked. It could have a burr on it, have some tiny part knocked skew-haw, or simply be clogged with lint. Best bet is probably to take the machine in for a checkup.

Sorry about all those technical terms[lol]

Necroing the thread to ask a sewing question:

I have a velvet jacket with what I understand to be puffed or melon sleeves. The sleeves would fit fine if not for the elastic in the bottom hem that is just impossible to loosen. I was wondering if making a slight cut to release the elastic, then just draw-stringing a matching velvet ribbon through would be fine or if there could be another solution to the problem.

Here is the best clip art I could get of the sleeve, sorry, I don't have the means to take a picture of the actual jacket now:
