What advice would you give someone starting this project? Burda patterns are a great fit so try. Also if you have a hemmer foot use it, makes it easier to hem.

This is a reply to Hi Gail, as i don t know how ro ask a question directly to you, i hope you ll see this comment! This is a reply to the question about fusible thread and the iron. When using fusible thread, it is sewn on the wrong side of fabric. When wrong sides are pressed together (as a hem) the fusible thread is between the fabric layers so it doesn't come in contact with the iron. Hope that's a clear explanationthanks! mmljo329401415 on craftsy.com mmljo329401415

When using fusible thread, whether on a serger or sewing machine, it is sewn to the wrong side of fabric. When hemming for instance, the wrong sides are pressed together and and the fusible thread is between the right sides of the fabric so the iron doesn't touch it. (I did answer your question before...I wasn't ignoring you, but maybe it wasn't posted in the right place. Sorry about that. Hope you see it this timethanks!)
