Has anyone mentioned http://www.patternreview.com ? It's a good place to find patterns and read what people have to say after using specific ones.

PS: The Vintage Sewing.Info site is down D: D:

Thanks^^ Great guide. However, does anyone have some plushie-making tuts they could add? I think that'd fit nicely here.

Do you have a tutorial link for how to make blazers? I'm cosplaying as Yui Hirasawa from K-ON! and there school uniforms wear dark blue blazers. And a white blouse tutorial would be nice also.

I don't know of any jacket/blazer tutorials. Men's jackets are one of those things that you think shouldn't be that hard - but they totally are. You can check this thread for some general advice:

This book is invaluable - but expensive. :/

Most of the tutorials in this thread are for things not covered by basic patterns (things like applique and dying, as well as things you probably won't find patterns for such as boot covers and sailor collars) or additional information (such as setting in sleeves and the various info already presented in regards to tailored jackets).

Instead of tutorials, you should probably be looking for patterns. Unless you are really good at drafting your own patterns, a how-to with mini-diagrams on the internet isn't going to be of much help. Most patterns come with the instructions you need and if you still need help with something specific, come back to us and we can offer better advice.

Can you please update the applique links? The first one is broken and should be removed.

Can you please add these two:

a basic one on doing turned edged applique on a simple shape:

a very nice one on satin stitch applique:

thanks!

I saw the threads for altering sleeves, but what about collars? I'm cosplaying as SunSun from Bleach and found the perfect pattern (an old 60's dress pattern) but it has a scoop neck and SunSun's costume is more of a mock turtleneck. How would I go about altering that? I'm great with following patterns but I've never tried to really alter anything before I would prefer to avoid the trial-and-error method.

To change a scoop neckline to a mock turtle neck, you will need to:

- Raise the existing front neckline (assuming the back goes all the way up to the nape of your neck).
- Add a collar. If it is stretchy fabric, all you need is a rectangle of fabric that is folded over. However, if the garment fabric doesn't stretch, you will need to add a mandarin style collar.

Check out this post on another forum: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=276608.0

Make sure you leave an opening in either the front or back of the shirt. That is pretty easy to forget, since scoop necks are usually large enough that you don't need an additional opening.

I was digging through the internet and found this really handy site for women's to men's size conversions for those who use patterns like I do. Enjoy. http://www.susans.org/reference/size.html

Hey, thanks for posting! Though, I did have one question - I have a mostly-rayon jacket that I need to dye a darker shade of red. Should I follow the instructions/tutorials already posted for one of the synthetic fabrics? (polyester, ect?)
