Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, Octobtr 21, Wl Willingness helps when dress making By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) If you want to be your own coutu- rier, it does help to have tal- ent. But good equipment and a willingness to take pains can also take you a long way, says Rodolphe. Rodolphe is a Toronto cou- turier who has started a fash- ion and fabric club to offer advice and teach cutting, fit- ting and sewing techniques to women who like to sew or like high style but not high prices. Ho says patience, space and the best equipment you can afford are all important if you want sew well. "You cannot work in a hurry. A lining put in badly can pull a dress all out of shape, bad button holes can ruin it. "You must have space, you cannot work in cramped quarters. You must have a big work surface, preferably a table. If you work on your dining room table, be sure the light is good. "Get good scissors. If you pay two or five dollars more for scissors, it pays in the long run. USE BASIC PATTERN "You should have a ruler, a marker, and you should have a T-bar. Then you can use a basic pattern and change it to many things, if you have the imagination. N o t everyone has that. "If you want to change a pocket, you have to re-draft a pattern, that's what you use the T-bar for. A pattern is real drafting. If your pattern is not exact, if you try to cheat, you may have two dif- ferent pockets. There are no short cuts. "When you prepare to sew, always have your work table clean. If you have little ends you have cut off the pattern or the fabric, clean them right off. Don't leave them on the table. "You also have to have a judy. No one can fit herself Always buy the more expen sive one if you can. You can- not work with cheap equip- ment. "If you change your figure, be sure to change your Judy If you're really precise, yot have to pad it and put canvas over it to match your figure. "What sewing machine you buy depends on the sewer. If you buy the most sophisti- cated machine, you may get confused by all the gadgets. TAKE LOVING CARE Hand work takes loving care. Most people would do best to buy a button-hole maker. You can get things like machine embroidery done for you. "Try to find a good store to buy fabric in, a store that will tell you if a fabric won't suit a pattern or if it won't wear well enough for what you have in mind or if the fabric pulls easily so you shouldn't wear a charm bracelet with it." Rodolphe says you should always ask if a fabric should be cleaned or washed and make sure you choose a lining that takes the same treat- ment. He says a dressmaker's supply store can sometimes be the best place to get lin- ings and buttons and trim. They often have the widest choice. "A button can make or break a whole outfit. Don't buy cheap ones if you've got good fabric." He says you should also consider accessories for the finished dress when you buy patterns and fabric. "Consider what you can do with a basic dress and make it look like five different dresses. "And it should work two ways. Choose shoes and the rest for several dresses. You don't buy a pair of shoes for each outfit." Dress regulations out for civil service women WINNIPEG (CP) The Manitoba Civil Service Com- mission has rescinded a dress code for female employees that directed hot pants to be cover- ed with a skirt or dress. The code, which said also that hemlines should be no higher than the reach of the wearer's finger tip, was con- tained in an interdepartmental memo in March. The guidelines sparked a flurry of complaints to the hu- man rights commission. Trevor Berry, executive sec- cretary of t h e Human Rights Commission, said people should be given credit for intelligence in matters of dress. He added: "if there are going to be reg-jlations with respect to employees, there should be regulations for both men and women." CORRECTION Mrs. Mary Kwasny, whose picture appeared in the Oct. 21 edition of The Herald, is a resi- dent of the Edith Cavell Nursing Home, and not the Devon Nurs- ing Home, as quoted. The Her- ald regrets any inconvenience caused by this error. TOP TWELVE 45 R.P.M. AT LEISTER'S MAIL ORDERSI Tick off trm selections you want and send to us. You'll receive your records for only each.

PARAMOUNT THEATRE BLDG., LETHBRIDGE NAME ADDRESS DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am sick amd tired of reading things about people who smoke dope when it is plain thai the person who is doing the writing has never tried drugs and doesn't know a darned thing about it. If you had made a few dope scenes yourself, Ann, you would not be printing such dumb letters as the one that appeared a few days ago. Real heads don't call it a "pot party." They say "weed par- ty" or "head popper." It Isn't true that grass makes you understand things bet- ter. It does just the opposite which is why a lot of cats smoke it. They don't want to see things as they really are. It's too rough. They want the scene clouded up the ragged edges smoothed off. Dope can do it. When I was doing pot day, I was flunking every subject, except art. My art teacher gave me an A. I tltink he was smoking, too. I made up my mind to stay straight during the week and smoke on Friday and Saturday. It worked better that way. At least I passed. The square who wrote said almost every pothead he knew went on to something stronger. He's wrong about that. I know at least 100 heads and about one-third of that group is sa- tisfied to stay with pot including me. Tell it like it is, will you please? DEAR REE: I try, but it isn't the same for everybody. According to you, one-third of the heads in your crowd are satisfied to stay with pot. This means two thirds are trying for a bigger jolt. Thanks for the testimony. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Me writing YOU. I can't be- lieve it, but here I am ashamed I can't handle this problem myself. My mother came to live with us over a year ago. She was very sick and needed care. In June she had surgery, made a remarkable recovery and now looks and feels better than I do. Mother is 68 years old, financially independent, owns two lovely homes and has many friends miles away. Since she has regained her health I feel like a prisoner in my own home. She includes herself in all our social ac- tivities, just assumes she is invited. Wherever we go, she goes. Every day she says, "I'm so happy here. I'll never live alone again." Mother may be happy but I am miserable. I used to look forward to her visits and we even enjoyed taking her ion vacations, but to have her with me 24 hours a day is driving me crazy. I find myse'i hiding in my room. I'd never ask her to move. I don't want to hurt her, yet I feel gutless for not being able to free myself. Am I a trad daughter because I can't open-handedly share my home with my mother? I am boxed in on all sides. You are my only hope. She reads your column every day. Maybe she'll recognize herself. OF COURSE DEAR AN: She won't recognize herself. She'll think she's there ARE exceptions but they are as scarce as hen's teeth. Instead of hiding in your room, go sit with a counselor for an hour a day, twice a week. You need to ventilate your hostility and your frustration. Perhaps in the xrocess of ventilation you'll open some doors to self-under- standing and learn to tolerate your mother or find the strength to free yourself.
