What About Those Wrinkles?

If you've ever wondered what to do about those wrinkles in pants, under the butt, or wrinkles forming around the back armsythe--this DVD to the rescue.  I got it when it was on sale a couple of weeks ago. Peggy Sagers has a lot of sales.  I think right now she's offering 5 patterns for $30.

It doesn't answer every fitting question, being an hour long.  Peggy does show how to take care of a few common fitting problems though, and does it effortlessly by herself.  Basically, she takes those wrinkles and pinches them out, forming a dart.   The dart narrows to the nearest seamline.  Those baggy bunches under the butt in pants--pinch out the fullness, making a dart, and narrow the dart toward the side seam. 

If you haven't seen Peggy's webcasts--they are on her website, and they are free.  There are 15 online right now.  And--there is a webcast tonight, if you want to join in and ask questions. She'll probably offer something on sale too, whether patterns or fabric.   It starts at 8 PM, CST, I believe.  Here.  Scroll down.  Her webcasts are listed under "Upcoming Events".  Tonight's subject is "one pattern, many looks". I'll be there.

Yep Peggy is my favorite right now :)
I've seen her baggy butt wrinkles fix in one of her webcasts and it just all made sense.
I received my DVD today and am just now going to settle in and watch it.
The two hour difference makes it hard for me to watch her webcasts on the day of, so I watch it the next day. I really enjoy them.

1. Just wanted you to know that I review my book for you,
2. Drats!, I missed the podcast, but I'm tuning in to her regularly from now on now that I know about her. THANKS SO MUCH FOR SHARING! You know I suffer from wrinkles so I really needed this. I'm sold on the video.
3. If you don't mind, will you please review the book that you won from the other Gwen, I think it's on pattern making. I know it's a text book, but I've wanted it for a long time but was scared to buy because of the cost.
