  2. Hi Angela, I have written to you on the Pattern Review site but just wanted to pose additional questions and hope you will be able to help me. In the contemporary quilted jacket course which you state commences in August, do you also cover all the other topics covered in the tweed jacket course? I am in a bind as I didn’t really want to quilt my lining but I feel it will look more professional (I read your comment too where you said you love to do this….I just hate the look of hand stitches & I feel there will be plenty using this method). Also, I want to underline all my jacket pieces with silk organza instead of using interfacing – have you ever used this technique for a boucle fabric? I have spent a small fortune on my fabric and want to ensure I am making the right decision and need your expert advice. I know that doing one of your courses will be most beneficial, I’m just undecided on which one…
    Thanks again for your help with my concerns….
    Kind regards

    1. Hi Lexley,
      I think you would like the tailoring class that will be offered in the fall. The tweed jacket covers sewing a tweed jacket with fusible interfacing, sewing in lining, hemming sleeves, fun fringe trim, etc.
      The contemporary quilted jacket covers the couture jacket similar to the traditional Chanel style, but with a modern twist. There is handstitching involved, but most of it you can’t see – edging on the jacket, lining, trim.
      The tailored jacket covers pad stitching, underlining with cotton or organza, using stay tape for stability, steam pressing to shape collars and sleeve heads, etc. I think sounds more like what you are looking for.
      Did you add you name to this mailing list? I will be adding designer pocket ideas this summer and a few other jacket ideas.
      Hope that helped 🙂

  7. Angela,
    I just love your segments on its sew easy tv. I really want to learn how to make my own jeans and have purchased your pattern for the bootcut jeans. My question lies mainly with the size. I usually wear a size 6 and sometimes an 8 in ready to wear. However, your pattern size measurements show me at a size 10 to 14! yikes. I tried your link on fitting, but there isnt anything there. 😦 Can you give me some quick insight regarding measurements and whether or not I should, as a fairly beginner garment sewist, tackle jeans. I live in jeans and would like to learn :).
    Thank you so much!

      1. Hi Angela,
        Hope all is going well with your video shooting :), I know its probably alot of work. I am finally starting my jeans, with creating a muslin. I recall you emailed me when ordering my jeans and said to let you know when I was ready for some fitting assistance and you would email me back with a way to access you online fitting. I was wondering if you have that up and running. My main question is…do I jave to sew the yoke, waistband and facing along with the main pant sections for the muslin? I know it sounds like a silly/obvious question :/ Thanks much… and take care!

  10. I recently attended a fashion show at the the Sewing Expo in Atlanta, GA this past weekend and I saw the most beautiful trench coat. I was told it was your trench coat, pattern # AW5021, which I was unable to locate and was hoping that you might be able to help me. The coat is truly beautiful and I would love to make it. Could you please could contact me regarding the pattern. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you in advance for your help.

  11. Hi Angela
    Loved your serger video on Craftsy, and even found a great deal on a Babylock Evolution on Ebay, so using all your tips and tricks. Then after reading your review on the Dreamweaver I found a Ellisimo on Clist so have an awesome duo in Le Sewing Room! Now finally ordered your jeans and awesome ruched top patterns, my ? is I am following your technique for the ruching but the bobbin thread seams a little prone to breaking as I am gathering it. Any suggestions? different thread or L&W of stitch?
    Thanks so much I am such a great fan of yours a girl after my own heart with the sewing and fishing!

    1. Hi Ronda,
      Thanks for the note and support 🙂 Are you using a long straight basting stitch, like 5.0?
      Also, gently pull the bobbin thread, not the top thread, it works better.
      Otherwise you could use a stronger cotton thread, I use cotton most of the time only because then the thread will dye the same color as the fabric (I dye my tops after sewing). Let me know if that works. Cheers, Angela

  14. Angela, I have just made the muslin for your Angel jeans pattern. I also took your class on designer jeans on Craftsy, I really enjoyed that class!. I live in the UK and am frustrated that some of the tools that you talk about and demonstrate, are just not available over here. I am particularly interested in the button hole cutter set and sleeve board, I have a clapper and point turner but wondered if you know of a supplier that ships to the Uk?
