|I would never have figured this out on my own.|
But the truth is, that know-how is hard won, and it's silly to expect that professionals and skilled amateurs will want to give away their knowledge for free all the time. I'm more than willing to pay good money to learn new things and support the people who can teach me something new. There's a lot of great info floating around the internet, but there's also a lot of bad info, so I'm also happy to support a source that I know to have consistently good information.

Enter Foundations Revealed and Your Wardrobe Unlocked. Both are subscription sites with a wealth of how-to articles, historical research, fitting advice, pattern making instructions and so much more. These sites have taught me so much over the years, and they are in danger of shutting down if they can'y get more subscribers. The monthly fee is quite low, and allows them to pay their writers and maintain the sites, so by signing up you are supporting your fellow costumers! Please take a look at both FR and YWU and consider signing up.
