    I have an old overlocker and when trying to thread I get so confused. I’d love to use it properly

    How do you / have you changed a back zipper to a side zipper? I’m not able to reach back zippers anymore!! Lol!! Do you use a placket zipper or an invisible seam zipper?

    Hi Linda! I have your Fashion Fitting Encylopedia and love the easy-to-understand instructions and illustrations; however, I still struggle with knowing if I need a balanced shoulder adjustment or a forward thrust shoulder adjustment. Is there an easy way to know the difference?

    I just have a regular older machine and I don’t have a serger. On the old patterns I had the seam allowance was 5/8 inch. What do you use now?

    Hi, Linda! I’m wondering how much inspiration you’re getting from Eileen Fisher, Oska, etc. these days. Your style seems to have changed in recent years.

    I’m short and very large. I can’t seem to find clothes or patterns that fit me. Is there anything I can do to make a pattern fit properly? (Also I am disabled and sit down alot)

    Can you recommend some simple projects that I can make look fantastic to develop my sewing confidence? My biggest frustration is making something and having it look a bit homemade where I am not excited to use it. Full disclosure: I know I need to practice more 😁
