    Yayyyyyy! I just checked my patterns and I have this one in PlusSize! Can I still follow along?

  5. Cheryl Oubre says:

    Another excellent tutorial. In the beginning you stated you were using a Ponte knit. Did I miss that you didn't use a zigzag stitch? Did you use a straight stitch?

  6. Ti Pettis says:

    You mention when sewing the facing stay stitch but you mean understitching

    Thank you so much Anita for this sewing course. I loved the way you show the different techniques using zipper feet. I have been shy of using zippers but I believe now I can at least start to insert one. This instruction will be viewed again and again. Thanks again for the lessons.

  10. I love the way you take your time and explain everything so everyone can understand. keep up the good work. thanks.

  11. Shalom Anita, I'm new to your channel and I'm very interested in sewing my own clothing. Can you show how to make a cardigan sweater with buttons on it if it's not to much trouble for you? I would really appreciate it if you can show a tutorial on making it. God bless and thanks so much for making this awesome YouTube channel. ?
