    Simplicity or McCall s has a few patterns that have 3 body types or sizes. Some are pants that are slim,regular and curvy. Tops with adjustable bust. Haven't made them yet.

    I recently did a sewing project using oil cloth. I don't have a walking foot, so I tried using tape under the foot to help (which was suggested), but still had problems. Any suggestions or tips for sewing with this fabric?

    I am making a cape that just reaches below my finger tips. I made it with fleece & would love to line it. My concern is static electricity with the fleece as well as the lining. Is there a lining fabric that is static free? Or do you have another suggestion to lining this cape.
