Sorry to revive this thread, but its a sticky anyway XD
I have a question about a translation which I can't seem to find anywhere on the internet.
My grandma teaches me sewing according to what she calls the "proper" way.
This involves hand stitching around all the pattern pieces with big loops every other stitch, in Dutch its called 'doorslaan'
It is kind of a replacement for chalk I guess.
After you went around the pattern it looks like this :
(A. in the picture)
After that you can unpin the pattern, pull the two sides of fabric off each other, and then you cut through the threads in the middle and it will look like B. on the picture the fuzzies are ont he wrong side of the fabric, and the neat lines on the right side, then you can see all the lines clearly and know where you have to stitch
I hope anyone knows the English word for this, and my explaining is sort of clear...
(yes that is satin in the picture, no it is not for cosplay purposes
