    Thank you I used the buttons and they seem fine.

    Thank you I will try your suggestions on the bodice.

    Thank you for your help. I want to sew the trim on the fancier way because the inside of the hems are visible at times.

    I had a problem like this too and brought it to my dealer. On mine there’s a switch, in the area below the knife blade, that moves up and down to move a finger underneath the needle. If it’s down by accident it breaks my needles.

    The checklist above is the current one. I intended to make the updated list a while ago but I have an issue from transferring between different versions of the software. I will make the list as soon as I get the new software.

    yes it has a pile but it’s a short white pile. I will cut it, as you suggest, so when I fold it in half and sew it along the edge of the hood it doesn’t stretch. I’m going to cut it vertical, thank you for your help.

    Thank you for your help I did what you suggested and went with the chest measurement. I cut a 12/14 bodice out and put a pin at the intersection of the underarm and side seam allowance and pivoted it out to a 1X. Then cut the waistband out for a 1X. It seemed to work, I’m waiting to hear if it fits. Fingers crossed.

    Someone may have already suggested this but I would love a Moto type jacket for girls that might also work for boys.

    Thank you for your suggestions. I decided to sew straps in the usual place instead of the center front. They do tie in the back on each side. I interfaced the bodice for support.

    You are so kind to do that, thank you.

    Sarvi I love the Addi Turbo circular needles for hats. I use wooden 4 double pointed needles too to finish all the tops. I always feel better using wood but I think the Addi Turbo needles are easier on my hands. I would encourage anyone beginning to knit to start with hats. Once you get the basic pattern they knit up fast and you can make all kinds of hats from a basic pattern.

    I like to knit in addition to sewing. I started knitting again 6 years ago when my daughter was expecting. I used the book Itty Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson with the suggested Addi Turbo circular needles. I knit all of the kids winter hats now using a modified pattern. I just started a thrum baby hat and a toddler sweater. I like to listen to Martine on the IMake Guernsey podcast while I’m knitting.

    This year, starting with this month, I am making a red cotton velveteen cape from LTTS and a white onstage tutu for my 5 year old granddaughter. For my 3 year old grandson a wolf hat using the LTTS hat pattern and faux wolf fur. For the two toddler granddaughters white onstage tutus.

    Thank you, I just read when this happens to measure the child’s back width and then the back pattern piece, so I’m going to piece the pattern pieces together and measure before I begin.

    I wish we lived closer to each other. I’m looking for 5/8″ cotton in white.
