Drapery Help by Gerry Leath
I bought some of that "gauzy" stuff to make a "scarf" for my window. It slides all over and slips all over. I'm trying to hem it before draping over the rod. Anybody got any hints on how to do this? I've already decreased the tension. I need help! Thanks! Gail

My brother stopped by with his old varsity jacket yesterday asking my help and I'm afraid I now need yours. The jacket itself is in excellent condition except for the old naugahyde sleeves. They have grown sticky with the passage of time. I'm thinking it's the oil used to make the naugahyde but,...

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.
