Did I put this greeting in the wrong place? It's the announcement, not the greeting frame!?!


Dear Sator,

I would like to thank you again for your invitation to become a member of your website. You know you have my deep respect.

As a child, it took me a long time to learn to swim. So is it also with practically everything else I try to do. I live in Germany and Switzerland, study a small part of philosophy, in particular a book ot two by R. Steiner, and give English lessons, where I usually learn more than my pupil. I wear clothes without knowing much about them. Furthermore, I constantly make mistakes in propriety. But I'm sure to learn to think and act differently if I pay attention here!

Yours sincerely,

Naive, Jr.

PS: It's exciting to see the color edition of your magical square. It reminds me of other magical squares - I wonder if the term "magical square" is appropriate here for your box? For example, I believe Ferdinand Gonseth presented such a symmetrical square for the system of all possible so-called "truth values" propositional logic. It's no less exciting to see names of other members which I recognize as familiar from elsewhere!

Just a little housekeeping note to everyone.

Please only use the reply with quotes if there is a specific reason to use them, and preferably quote only the part that is relevant. In general, it is best to just use the Add Reply or Fast Reply buttons. This makes it easier for all of us to read the thread, which will become overly long if everyone uses the reply with quotes.

Thank you!

Just a little word to all of our members.

Education is something that is really important. So, if you are a learner, whether on your own or as part of an apprenticeship please feel free to join in on the discussion. Don't be afraid to ask questions, no matter how basic or silly they may seem. Tailors please encourage apprentices to participate. Please don't feel the Professional and Technical Forum is only for seasoned pros either, as we have plenty of home sewers here as well.

The other thing is that there are a number of clothing enthusiasts who may not care about all the technical stuff, but have a passionate interest and plenty of knowledge on style and aesthetics. If that describes you well, then L'Anglomane is for you. You don't have to be an industry person to post. Everyone is welcome and invited to post there.

The forum has been reorganised. The reason for this was because there were times it was hard to decide if something should go into the Cutter's or the Tailor's Forum. Also beginners were feeling a bit lost amongst the sea of information. I also think the division according to garment type makes it easier to find what you are looking for.

Dear Sator,

Please forgive me if I have posted this question in the wrong area. I have been searching everywhere for a system that I can use for drafting jackets for large bust sizes. I can fit small sizes perfectly, but the extra large sizes is a bit of a problem. Can you suggest a drafting scale that can be used effectively for large bust sizes (In other words: drafting system for plus size jackets for women)? Also I have noticed that my email says private, how can I change it to public? Thanks for your assistance.

Replying to Threads

Sorry if this is too basic for some but for those out there who are new to internet fora here are some simple tips.

There are two ways of replying:

1. Reply with Quotes

This is the option to use if you want to comment on what someone else has written.

If you look at their post you will find the following button just underneath it:

Posted Image

If you click it their post will be quoted in your reply. If it is long it is best to edit it down so you are left with the statement you want to draw attention to.


2. Reply without Quotes

Posted Image

This is the best one to use if you aren't commenting on someone's statement and you want to add your viewpoint to the thread in general. It can be found at both the top and the bottom of each thread you are reading.

Adding Your Reply

Once you have typed in your response, you should quickly proof read it. You can also see what it is going to look like before you commit yourself to showing it to the whole world by clicking "Preview Post" first.

Posted Image

After you have previewed your reply and you are happy with it, click on "Add Reply".
