Hello! Finally sewing after a long hiatus

Postby sew-sew-ing » November 29th, 2016, 8:59 am

Hi Everyone Sewing! After years of threatening of returning to sewing, finally am looking at patterns, currently women's nightgowns with details like pin tucks, smocking, etc.. What websites do you use for value$ and great customer service? Thanks!

Hello and welcome!
There are lots of ladies here who could probably help. Come and post in the Coffeehouse section or in the On Topic section. I think those areas get seen by more people.

That's one of those "it depends" answers. I shop at Martha's Heirlooms, Farmhouse Fabrics, and a local store in Savannah for heirloom fabrics. I shop at fabric-store.com for linen, the ribbon retreat for ribbon, and Martha's Heirlooms, Martha Pullen Store and a local shop here for lace.

:hihand: And welcome to the forum!

I'm a homeschooling mother of five living in Nebraska. I would love to make a smocked nightgown for myself. I've actually bought the Autumn Leaves pattern by Judith Marquis. I like that one b/c it doesn't have the gathered sleeves. But if I'm honest, I think it will be a long, long time before I get around to making it. My girls are 12 and 8, and they will only let me sew for them for a little while longer.....
