    Sewing machines - where and how much
    im looking for a sewing machine. id like it more powerful/reliable than fancy and feature filled. convenience/ease of use is a plus. Punching through leather would also be nice but isn't necessary. Can anyone recommend such a device? - The big question is - how much is your budget? You can probably get a used, low-frills quality machine for $500 (maybe less). For perspective, I spent ~$1000 on a used Husquavarna

    Project: Needle Organizer
    I don't like to put used needles back into the package with the new ones, yet once a needle is out and set aside, it is often difficult to identify the needle size and type! I used to find myself throwing away a needle because I had no idea what it was. Here's a quick and easy needle organizer to make so you can quickly find the needle you're looking for. This would make a nice, quick gift for a sewing friend, and could be personalized and embellished any number of ways.

    Stitches for Buttonholes
    Since there were no mandatory standards for buttonholes during the 1800's, the only way to know what stitch was used on a particular item, is to see that item. The fact that these uniforms were not made in large factories, further compounds the problem. Since the work was contracted out, even items of the same exact style and from the same depot could easily have different stitches used. But there were standard practices that tailors and seamstresses followed

    How to make an easy Italian chemise
    I first posted the basic info about my version of an Italian chemise in my Florentine dress diary, but at the time, I talked more about my sources and changes I made to the pattern instead of tips about how to make one for yourself. So in the hopes of being more useful, I decided to go back and do a step-by-step guide in case you are interested in making your own chemise. There are at least two other good sources out there that are all based on the same 17th century Italian chemise found in the book, Cut My Cote. Kass McGann wrote the original online article, A Reconstructed Chemise, which inspired my attempt, and then Bella Lucia da Verona has also written a very in-depth look at the Italian camicia which you can find here. Both of these are excellent, but I tried to simplify the pattern while still keeping the same shape.

    Couture Sewing
    Couture (pronounced koo TOOR) sewing is that time honored method, of mostly hand and little machine sewing, used by design houses, couturiers, and custom tailors to create made-to-measure exclusive garments of individual art and unique beauty. Techniques that identify a garment as such use elements of fit, color, fashion design, textile and surface design.
