Subject: Client problem has escalated

Lots of communication through design/construction process. Shipped dresses expecting clients to like them. They were not satisfied. I asked for pictures and offered to fix them or give $200 for alterations. Over one year later they contact me asking for $600 for someone they know to alter them or full refund and threaten to sue me and flame my reputation. Has anyone else dealt with this? What did you do? If you haven’t, what would you do?

as you hold a sequin underneath, and it pokes thru and sews it to the fabric. I saw this on a video, of making a couture dress. I would love to know how this is done and what this tool is.

Subject: Rehooping on large machine question.


Author:
KD
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: Saturday, October 05, 09:22:14am

While the large hoop on the big machine is great, I've hit an obstacle. I'm trying to do an embroidered pattern around the edge of the skirt. Even with a nice wide hoop span, I won't be able to get my pattern all the way along my 60inch piece of fabric.

Normally, when I have something that needs to be rehooped, I digitize a placement line on the first hooping, then repeat it for the second hoop and place my piece for the remaining embroidery.

My problem this time is I have a continuous repeating pattern that I want around the edge of the skirt. I was hoping to do a skater style skirt (large folding pleats usually with trim of ribbon around the edge).

1. Am I rehooping incorrectly? Should I be using the hoop layout/rehooping feature on my software (Bernina V6)? Ashamed to say I've never used it, my way usually works great for me.
2. Should I scratch the idea of a full skater skirt requiring 60 or more inches of fabric and just do a less full gathered skirt?
3. Am I over analyzing this?

Apologies for all the questions, but I'm stumped. I welcome any and all input anyone is willing to share!!

Thanks!

I've done a few skirts now using a long rectangle as the skirt. I've fussed with the side seams, snipping them up at a curved angle trying to give the skirt the right shape from the front. Question is, should I be pulling it up at the sides at the top of the skirt instead of the bottom? Not sure if this is making any sense or not but I appreciate any help anyone is willing to offer.

Subject: Help, ladies, I need suggestions! I'm a SNDM, I've made a lot of dresses, but recently made my first sequin dress. Thankfully, it was for dd as I always experiement on her first. It's got sequins in bottom 2/3 of bodice and in skirt, with twinkle satin at top of bodice and sleeves. She's worn it 3 or 4 times and the sequins have snagged the fabric of the sleeve all the way from cuff to underarm seam so badly that the sleeve is all puckered up and several inches shorter than it used to be!


Author:
thanks!
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: Monday, September 16, 12:45:18pm

I need to replace the sleeves in time for the next feis in two weeks. I have just enough of the satin to make two new sleeves. The question is what to do differently this time so that the fabric isn't damaged in the same way again. I considered replacing the sleeves with something more sturdy, but I can't think of anything that would match the dress and not look like an obvious replacement.
The only thing I have come up with is to cover the new sleeve entirely in a matching color of tulle, and then to put no embroidery on it as the embroidery snags also, of course! But I'm wondering if the tulle will snag on the sequins also? Should I try two layers of tulle? I saw a couple of BNDM dresses at NANS with tulle covering the entire sleeve and couldn't figure out why they'd do that until this happened to me, and now I think I know!
Does anyone have any other ideas?
thanks so much!

Ok, I'm making a practice dress out of muslin and I'm already stuck. I know personal preference plays a part in this, so if you are willing to share your formula for where the bodice should end and the skirt should begin, I would really appreciate it. What I would like to know is, would it be ok to start the waist seam at the hip bone? If I want it to end in a "V" in the middle, how many inches below the hip bone should it be? My daughter is neither short nor long waisted, if that makes a difference.

Lots of colors, some in large sizes (34ss and 40ss). Also 25 mm and 50 mm crystal round flatbacks (1 or 2 inches!)
Just click on the promotions tab on the website.

It's from whitelodge, the most horrible stuff since tissue lame! It doesn't stick to stabilizer, it's see thru, and bubbles wierd. This project is taking 3 times longer than it should. Dis like!!
