Sailor pants are a good modern example.

Hi Coopie,

Of course, I should have thought of that! I actually like sailor pants until I have to handle all those buttons QUICKLY.

Thanks for the reply, Susan

Here is the occasional man. Have been lazy the past few months. Gained 17 lbs from the 270 4 weeks ago when I had surgery. Perhaps the surgeon left some instruments behind?
Would like to put together 2 knit shirts, a baby quilt and a pillow before All Hallows Eve. Well, maybe.

Hi Jumala, I guess we could both do with a walk around the block before sewing time...how about doing one knit shirt and showing us how you do the neck? My DH has an October birthday...

Made 1/2 of a baby quilt and 2 regular shirts since the last posting. Still need to put safety pins on one in place of buttons and put buttons on the other. Found a way to mount a Janome sliding buttonhole foot on my Bernina. The Bernina does not have any type of buttonhole foot for it, therefore, the jerry rigging. Us men do wierd stuff.

Jumala: For the price of Bernina attachments, it pays to do "weird things". BTW there are adapter ankles so you can use different manufacturer's feet on Bernina machines.

Hi, where does on find these "ankles" from. Just do a Google search? Have plenty of Janome feet here with the Huskystar, the Janome and the Bernina. Have a few Bernina feet including the pricey walking or plaid matching foot. The Bernina does nice button holes.

Nancy's Notions, for one has it. It is called "Bernina Shank Adapter". Costs $15.00 + shipping. I imagine there are other places, too, and maybe even cheaper.

For my Bernina, a 1630, there are two different ankles. Each has a different length and does make a difference depending upon what brand foot you want to adapt. I have both, so I have been able to use any brand foot I want. I don't know about other Berninas, but be sure you get the right one(s) for your model.

I needed to get an adaptor from Bernina before I could use the ankle. Check with your dealer or go to the Bernina site for information. There are chat groups for Bernina owners. I do not belong to one but if you Google Bernina chat groups, you should find what you are looking for.

Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving to all!

I am a man who sews. I enjoy it and have learned to put together garments quickly. I used to make every garment I wore and am getting back into making all my clothes.

I try to keep at least one project on the front burner at all times unless I am away from home,which I have been for the past two weeks. Lately my focus has been on chinos and jeans for myself. I have purchased fabrics for three shirts. Those may be next. I also need shorts for summer. I used to sew a lot for other people, but that has stopped with the exception of one daughter who enjoys the knit tops I make for her. Everyone else just did not wear the things I made for them. So I decided that most people were just too picky and sewing garments for them was a waste of my time and money not to mention the aggravation. I am enjoying sewing for myself.

I suspect that they are men of few words and much sewing. John Waynes of the forum!
StMike I find it hard to believe someone would not wear your work. Your work is really beautiful.

I agree with Coopie, St. Mike. You could sew for me anytime.

I don't sew for my family either, they don't think it is cool to have something home made. even my mother would turn up her nose at my sewing. they would never wear anything I made, so I just concentrate on myself, and that is a full time job anyway.

when someone needs something repaired they are all over me. If my children want something repaired, I make them help. that way they can see how much work it is. Ds is getting pretty good with a seam ripper.

sometimes I just say no and don't feel a wit of guilt about it.

Figure I may as well put myself in this thread. I have been producing custom mascot costumes via my business ByCats4Cats.com since 2009. in 2012 I took my business full time and now have three employees. I have a custom fit to my mascot costumes as they are made to fit one person, not a wide gamut of volunteers. Before obtaining this software over a year ago, I lacked the skill necessary to guarantee a perfect fit. Thank goodness I found Wild Ginger! I make 45-60 costumes a year and my work is found world wide. I'm hoping to become a bit more active on these forums because after taking 30 minutes to read thought some posts on here, I have learned quite a bit of tweaks. Away we go!

Curious. Did you use the software to help pattern the heads or mainly the body costumes?

just the body sections. the heads have been in ongoing development since 2005. thats just something that has to be self learned and tweaked over time. No simple process nor tutorials for that.
