Threads magazine No. 207 February/March 2020
« on: February 24, 2020, 10:59:29 AM »
The latest edition of Threads magazine is now out, I got mine last week.

There is an article showing you how to make Chinese Knots  for a fastening on a jacket.  An article on Focus on the Waist - to improve the fit on trousers, another article on Ponte Knits, and another article on Lining it like a Pro i.e.lining a jacket.

However what really caught my eye this time around was  an article called Tuck-marking trick and this involves using something called Totally Stable  Iron on  Tear Away Stabiliser and this has been used on a Butterick pattern 6208 which is out of print, and has tucks down the front bodice - the front bodice has a button closure and is slightly V neck. 

Sorry Jessie this information on the pleat part is probably too late for you, but this Totally Stable stabiliser product is available here in the UK via Amazon.

@Elnnina I haven’t got round to looking at this one yet although it came in the post a while ago. 
But I see the lining method is by Linda Lee.  I like her methods.  Must have a look when I have time.
