Just a couple more sewing tips I thought might be of some use to you.
I have had a number of people asking me to explain the measurements on the "inch" tape, so I hope this will help.
Another tip is for when your buying fabric or a dress,etc. scrunch it in your hands and if it falls back and holds its shape,great! but if it holds the wrinkles,by all means buy it if you like ,but just remember it might need a lot of ironing!
