Threads magazine No. 206 December/January
« on: December 15, 2019, 15:11:47 PM »
I received my copy of Threads yesterday, and there is a feature showing the winners of the Make it with Wool competition, some lovely garments and ideas, plus one is a Machine Embroidery winner and this is beautiful yet so simple.  I do love some of the  extras that some of these winners have added to their garments.

There is also a new and different way in fitting called Add a Yoke for Fit by Sarah Veblen she has taken a shoulder dart and turned this into a curved back yoke, and also on another one made a two piece back yoke.

The vintage garment feature is lovely and shows how we can add bias silk or taffeta  bands to tulle to create a stunning evening dress - replicating one from 1929.  I personally think this idea would be so useful for those making full wedding dresses and these bands on tulle would make an excellent underskirt as the edges of the tulle are enclosed by wide bands of the silk or taffeta.

Another article is about lining knit garments  and suitable fabrics for this.

Oh I do love my Threads magazine, there is always something nice that I like in each issue, it is just a shame it is so difficult to get hold of - luckily I have an excellent newsagent in a neighbouring village who gets this for me - I am the only one, and I start chasing him when I think the next one is due, and so far I have not lost out - sometimes it is very late.

I have a big collection of older Threads magazines. I gave away lots of other magazines (including Burda, and Australian Stitches), but always kept those.
The more modern editions just don't appeal.

I'm not a habitual magazine buyer, but will leaf through Threads when I am next in my local Smith's, which carries several sewing titles, including Burda, Ottobre and some just to see if there is a demand.

@Elnnina I haven’t got round to reading this one yet.  I love the vintage details too.  So interesting. 
I have a subscription so it gets sent in the post.  I also have a huge collection of the magazines  :)

I was in Smith's today so flicked through this edition.  Not a lot of pages for £4.95  :S
