The instructions are not very detailed. I turned the hand knobs just to see what they are for and now I am getting the needle error. According to the instructions, I am trying to adjust the needle position by hand but the knob turns only half way and then stops!
Help! Did I already brake it? Or is there something simple that I am overlooking?

My ID's dress has a plain drop waist, and it has a couple of marks on it that we can't get out. I don't want to over-bling that area, so I thought about getting red crystals (same size as what's on the pleats on the lower part of the skirt) to fill in the area, which is red velvet... so that the marks are covered. I also thought we'd sprinkle the crystals throughout the dress in other spots so it wouldn't be so obvious. Another fabric overlay wouldn't look good.

Is that ever done? I'm waiting for the crystals to arrive, and will place them before I commit. But I'm new to all this blinging out of dresses... don't want to ruin her dress. I would love any opinions!

Thanks so much, Laurie

I have used a bottom of the line brother for 30 years for nearly everything you can think of including Irish dance dresses. I really think it is about time I upgrade. I've test driven both industrial zig zags and domestics with all bells & whistles. Im leaning toward industrial for Irish dance dress construction and for the satin stitch ... then investing in industrial embroidery machine also. but would love to know anyone else's experience with machines.

Author:
Thoughts??
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: Tuesday, June 23, 06:55:29pm

In the past and up till recently I've always constructed my back skirts with a pleat. Even on a soft skirt, I will make the underpanel a couple of inches bigger than the back bodice and create a pleat with that excess. It does make the back waist seam a little bulky in that area especially with the layer of underpanel and soft skirt, lining etc. however my logic is that having that pleat there gives the corresponding let out room to make the skirt bigger around the waist to match up with the bodice if it is ever let out from the side seams.

However I've noticed from looking at other dressmakers work (eg second hand big names etc) that they were not including this pleat on soft skirts. The only "let out" is about an inch in the centre back at the zipper. However this is the let out to correspond with the centre back if the bodice. There doesn't seem to be any where in the skirt that you could get the extra space if the side seams were let out. It seems silly as there's extra space sitting there in the bodice seams, but no way I can see to make the skirt bigger, preventing much alteration.

Just wondering other Dm's thoughts on this. It seems the skirt and waist construction would be simpler without the pleat and less bulky, but I don't want someone left with a dress that can't be altered if they ever need it.

Ordered DD her first custom dress which will come without crystals. Was planning on doing the crystals myself along with a custom hairpiece to match.

Researching crystals, I notice that the Korean ones are super cheap and was wondering whether these might be better for the coloured stones that don't seem to show up much on stage anyway? Or is this false economy and I should really be looking to eek every last sparkle I can get by using Swarovski or preciosa?

I have loved making ID dresses for years, but it seems I am working more and more for less and less money. When I strated all this in the 3 panel days there was no design on the back bodice, design only on the cuffs of the sleeves, the front bodice consisted of design only in the center front - no embroidery over seams, and no crystals. It got more difficult with the bodices and sleeves being heavily embroidered over the seams, but then the skirt didn't have embroidery, so the work evened out. Now customers expect heavy embroidery on the front and back bodice, on the entire sleeves, and on the skirt, and hundreds of dollars of crystals, and they want to pay the same or less than in the past. I'm doing a lot more work, but not making any more money, which means my hourly wage has gone down since the economic rebound. Are other dressmakers experiencing the same? I really need some motivation.

I thought perhaps the skilled experienced seamstresses here may know what I am doing wrong - or maybe it's just the machine. I have a very old Elna (from the 1960's) that was my mother's but has always been a fine machine. I've had it serviced regularly and it just came back from repair.
I am just an occasional sewer. A frequent problem is that the bobbin thread gets all wrapped up in the bobbin case, so much so that I have to cut everything and start over. What I think may be happening is that it's getting messed up when I switch back and forth from forward to reverse. Is there something I need to be mindful of?
