Hello Vani mam,

Can you please tell if we have to use buckram in the fans? If yes will it be for the whole of the fan or only at the border?

vani said...

Buckram is not used. pleats are piled one above the other and ironed well.After using the dress once again
you arrange them and secure them with a few stitches and keep until you use it again.

Hai Vani madam, I am following your blog for a long time, it is very useful. Recently I stitched a saree blouse following your blog. It has come very well. Only some wrinkles were coming in the sleeve that I corrected it. The fitting of the blouse is perfect.Before this I did smocking for the cushion covers . That has also came very well. I will try to send the photos of that. Thanks a lot madam.
