Congratulations Southfield High School Graduates 2014 | Free Vintage Knitting Patterns

Family Gatherings

I would like to give thanks for being able to come home and be apart of my granddaughter’s big day or shall I say a week.

My time at home with friends and family began with my oldest son’s birthday with his baby brother and his girl fixed a very large Seafood Boil of crab, scrimp, corn on the cob, red potatoes and sausage and the grill master fixin’s Salmon and Walleye for the fun of it.

The three brother’s, there’s a fourth he couldn’t make home this time–

Then came Memorial day everybody was there always good food, family and friends, spades and bid, plenty of trash talking and fun. I got to meet Alex’s parents and Anthony’s girl.  Too much fun to remember to take pictures. Bad bad girl (next time).

The man who started it all

Spadea’s Collection of Designer Sewing Tips Vintage | Tailor’s Slip Stitch | Hidden Buttoning | Pages 30 to 39

Tonight, there’s another glitch with E Bay’s listing form, so I decided to add more from the Spadea’s collection of sewing tips, here’s pages 30 to 39.

Hidden Buttoning – Many innovative styling techniques were innovations by Mr. Tiffeau’s, one of the most popular was the hidden button closure, giving a fluid unbroken look, which gives no hint of the button closure beneath. In his 1960’s collection, he used this closing in his loosely fitted jacket of a two piece dress made of flannel. Spadea’s N-1288 Two Piece Dress from the Vintage Pattern Wiki is an example of the technique.

would you like to see more of Tiffeau’s designs, check out Reading Vintage Vogue, on my birthday in 2003, the New York time sprinted an article call “The Hustler” which I think gives a great summary of how Tiffeau influenced the fashion industry.

Decisions Decisions Decisions – Sleeves

Detachable Sleeves not a new idea, but how to do it? Well that might have escaped the knowledge base of the average seamstress including me.

Facing the Facings – This tip isn’t just about facing it’s about flawless finishing techniques. If you have the chance to use this technique or have used a similar finishing, please share a pictures with our growing community.

The Tailor’s Slip Stitch – a sign of couture is your skill at hand stitching and your finishes, this is a hem technique worth learning to do. In the modern-day, most machines give similar hem stitch, but I think taking the time to practice and learn this technique is well worth the effort.
