Fill a hot water bottle with water and freeze, take to bed with you and cuddle it. Bliss  ;)

Thank you so much for your valuable advice. I do have this stitch on my machine, I believe it's called a straight stretch stitch, it does give a very secure seam, I use it sometimes for strength.

@Ploshkin I use two lines of gathering stitches quite close to the raw edge, should they be further in?

@So Chic thank you I'll have a watch of the tut later, am having a much-needed coffee  :P

Technical Help / Sleeve confusion
« on: June 20, 2020, 12:16:33 PM »
I need advice and guidance please.

I'm setting in sleeves on a dress, gathering at the sleeve head. Now, I always thought that once this was done, the sleeve head would magically smooth out and would not be wrinkled. But, I cannot fathom how to set the sleeve in without some wrinkles showing.   :thinking:

What is the right way?

They both look fab  :loveit:

I once tried to hack a dungaree pattern from a trousers pattern and shoving my own top/bib onto them. I couldn't believe how tricky it turned out to be, and I never got past the toile phase - which I didn't complete! I pulled my neck in and bought a pattern  :|

Well done on persevering  :hug:

@windthebobbin as you're an eager novice I wanted to point out the pitfall of trying garments on inside out, particularly trousers, but @Ohsewsimple got there before me  :thumbsup:

Wow, that's stunning. I think we all need one. And a lion head, and a moose head and ........ oh stop  :loveit:

Patterns Discussion / How much?!

Just received an email from TATB introducing their latest pattern - pyjama bottoms/shorts, where they're asking 12 quid for the printed pattern or over 8 quid for the PDF. WTF  :faints:
