Gusset at jeans hem by Marilyn Krzus
Help! I sew really cute jeans in PEOPLE magazine's fashion section: there was a zipper at the hemline rising perpendicular to the hem itself.

?? For Other Pro Sewers Discounts? by [email protected]

Hi there -- I've been asked by our local ballet (at which my 10 year old daughter is a student) to make some costumes. I've had lots of experience making things for my own family's use, but have never charged anyone a fee, so I don't know what I'm worth, so to speak. I'd love to have some input...
