Reply Nadja May 20, 2010 at 10:24 am (1100 days ago) Thank you! I came to this direction in the pattern and had no idea what the term meant (this is the first dress I have ever attempted), but I felt sure I would find the answer here–and so I did!

Sounds like an overhead train passing. Ouch!! Reply Jennie Chancey June 5, 2010 at 4:54 pm (1083 days ago) Lillian, that’s my old Pfaff, and, yes, it really was that loud! I now have a quieter BabyLock, and my son is going to be reshooting these older videos so we have better sound and visual quality. Hope to post those this summer! Warmly, Jennie Reply Vanessa January 2, 2011 at 9:11 pm (872 days ago) Very helpful! Thank you! Reply Christine February 11, 2011 at 3:26 pm (832 days ago) I totally thought understitching was something else completely. lol Thank you so much for clarifying! Reply Robin April 18, 2011 at 6:31 pm (766 days ago) Thank you so much. I had no idea what was meant by understitching. I’m having fun creating this dress. Reply Jeanette May 31, 2011 at 11:08 pm (723 days ago) Thank you! I was ready to toss out my dress until I read this. Reply Margaret November 15, 2011 at 12:29 am (556 days ago) That is so simple when you see it but so frustrating when you don’t know how. What a genius. Thanks so much. Reply Jennie Chancey November 15, 2011 at 2:37 am (556 days ago) You are so right, Margaret! This was one area I had to see done when I was learning to sew — it made no sense as a one-liner instruction in a pattern! Reply Rachael January 24, 2013 at 6:54 pm (119 days ago) Thank you! I read that on the directions for the lining and didn’t understand what it meant. I stitched the lining to the bodice 1/4″ around the top because I though that would do – this way is SO much better because you don’t see the stitching on the right side. Reply Jennie Chancey January 24, 2013 at 9:49 pm (119 days ago) So glad that was helpful, Rachael! Happy sewing! Reply Leave a reply Click here to cancel reply.
