Featured in the PR book!
Sorry no picture to show. But if you go to any decorating firm or wallpaper store. they have all these discontinued wall paper books for free. there are a zillion uses for them. But what i've been using them for lately is for patterns. if i have to add on some length or something small like that. i'll use the wallpaper samples pages. i like using the vinyl sample sheets. they dont tear and i can pin and re-pin them over and over. i used them for templates too. like for the bell sleeves and i've been practicing moving the darts around on tops and the templates help too. if you find the sample sheets in the checkered prints that helps with lining everything up nice and neat. if you find the really big sample books then thats even better. i have a huge stack of these books that will last me for a life time probably. like i said there are many uses for these books. but come in handy for sewing templates and for adding length to your pants or sleeves or what ever you need.
