Craftsy Chats: Garment Making with Suzy Furrer
I have purchase some of your courses but now I can’t get it at all
Hi this is steven glad to meet all of yeah
This is best live event! I’m a huge Suzy fan. What an instructor! Will this be viewable offline? I keep getting bumped and have great difficulty going online again. pam
I have the issue backwards. My stomachs says into the hip area right o the front but my behind and on down are narrower.
is ther any way to adjust for a “Dowagers Hump” on a knit top where the center back is on the fold and there is no yoke?
I have a bodice sloper that I made into a dress. I have a moderate bottom and a narrower back but a bit of stomach. So fitting the 2 parts is difficult to let out and take in to get a good fit. It tends to pull under the stomach and across the bottom but baggier at the back. Should I target darts or side seams.
The high bust measurement it important for me to use, but pattern companies don’t use/give that. Any suggestions?
Hi Suzy, I have your sloper class for tops. I’m wondering what to do with a pattern when one shoulder and arm is bigger than the other. When I make it to fit right on each side, it looks like a good fit, but it looks odd. Any ideas to give the illusion of more normal symmetry?
I do not have question, just want watch, listen, and learn
Suzy is a gifted instructor.
Just want to get back to sewing. I used to make all my clothes and some for the kids, but I have lost my mojo. Need to find something I want to try.
Just want to watch and learn.
I don’t have much luck with dart manipulation. It seems that the dart is best placed in the spot it is needed. After rounded back and shoulder alterations I found it necessary to add a dart to the back arm seam on a jersey knit. Moving the dart into the existing shoulder dart did nothing to remove the excess fabric at the back arm. I ended up making a back yolk, incorporating the dart in the yolk as seam allowance. Unconventional but it worked.
I would like to make a pillow & a throw blanket for my daughter’s 50th birthday. I also would like to write a message on both. I don’t have an embroidery machine & only have very basic sewing skills. Is there something I can use to write with that will hold up & is washable?
I’ve taken some of your great classes & learned to make & fit pants for myself. Although I’ve learned to make shirts for my grown sons (from DP Coffin), fitting shirts on myself seems like an overwhelming challenge. Help!
