First - the Master Pattern Collar Collection has been added to the Dress Kit master patterns. Now it's very simple to draw collars for your bodice neckline. This Collar Collection is now part of the Fifth Edition Dress Kit. Side 1 gives you the collar shapes. Side 2 gives you detailed instruction on how to use and draw your personal shape.
I know you're going to love working with these collar patterns.
Here's a short video introducing the collection.
After you've watched the video, I encourage you to comment, 'like' and/or subscribe to the surefitdesigns YouTube channel. You'll receive immediate notification when a new video is published. Also, please share this with your sewing buddies on your FaceBook page, sewing blog or forum. One of my 2014 goals is to increase our SFD subscribers so I'm asking for your help to 'spread the word'.
Second - the Dress Kit Instruction book has been expanded from 48 to 52 pages. The Fifth edition now has new designs and instructions for the set-in cap sleeve, the two-part sleeve (used primarily in tailored jackets), the funnel neckline design and a really pretty and comfortable high/low hemmed swing top...along with other instruction updates and clarifications.
To see a quick video explaining the Fifth Edition Dress Instruction book, watch below. (Sorry...the video is not embedded in this blog. For some strange reason this blogger software can't find the video, even though it is definitely on YouTube.
