Hello!

My name is James and work professionally as a software developer, but have an interest in making clothing in my free time. I've sewn in the past and have never been totally satisfied with the things that I've made, although my expectations might be a bit too high. The last project I tackled was a pair of trousers and I just couldn't get a muslin to fit comfortably. I had to take a little break and now I think I'm ready to give it another go. So glad I found this forum!

Hi everyone, my name is Anastasia and I have been sewing and pattern drafting since I was a little kid. In the past I have worked at various clothing companies mainly making patterns. I also apprenticed for about a year and a half with a retiring seamstress, where we mainly did small runs for boutiques and companies. Now I have just started at the costume department of the Greek National Opera, so it is a good excuse to learn more, and I love all the old methods people post on this forum (I used to follow the old one as well!). Nice to meet you all!

Good morning sirs/madams!
My name is Elias, I am a 21 yo student who happens to sew whenever there is free time available. I am a newbie who has commited the mistake of starting my sewing trials with a jacket, and used to read the old forum. I am starting a waistcoat on my vacations, may God help me   :)

Hello, all. Mitchell here. Not of the Mitchell Tailoring method, thankfully. That looked…not great. Not a bot. Frequently found in Manhattan, NYC. A silent member of the old C&T forum.

I’ve noticed not everything in the old forum is completely transferred (nor does it need to be!); however, I am looking for an old Dutch (?) black and white film of a master tailor at work, and students. Girls and boys. No sound, I think. The master sketched the coat pattern and the vest together (as Der Zuschneider assured is what is properly done—and I believed him!). Anyway, I enjoyed it, but can’t find it on the Wayback Machine. C&T is down again as of last night, even if you do have log in credentials.

Not sure where to post this. Feel free to move it to a more applicable section.

Its unfortunate but C&T is like a boat let lose in the sea with no-one at the helm. There was a lot of good stuff there long ago but neglect has destroyed much of it.

Hello, I'm Joshua. I was a then and again CandT member for years, though I never tried tailoring. I work at a well known men's suiting store and am thinking of getting into tailoring in order to increase my usefulness to the company and clientele by doing alterations. I'm a very big (350 lbs), very tall (6'4") man so I'm especially interested in the particular needs of b&t men. I look forward to reading your post and learning what I can!

My name is Patricia and I am a complete neophyte for tailoring (my sole foray was a man's dress shirt about 20 years ago), but I am looking for information that can be transferred to sewing tailored clothes for myself.

Hello my name is Parker McIntosh.
8 years ago, when I was 14, I started teaching myself to make historical clothing to wear both daily and at “re-enactments”
This quickly became a fascination with the history and development of Tailoring.

I’m currently apprenticed to a bespoke kilt maker as well as making historical garments for both myself and others.

I actively collect antique trade books and journals relating to tailoring and cutting. My earliest volume being the 1837 work of Dr. Wampen. In future I hope to start digitizing my collection.

I don’t post much in forums due to my dyslexia, but I’m happy to follow along and learn.

Hello all, my name is Craig. I am neither a tailor or a cutter. I have been trying to teach myself to sew for about a year and have finally invested in taking a class this January. I would love to find someone who would let me be a part-time apprentice since I work as a Nurse full time. I became interested in tailoring because I am a tall man and it is so difficult to find clothing. I can't wait to see the resources and education available here and I am sad that I never got to see the resources on the previous Cutter and Tailor site. Thank you all for allowing a complete newbie like me to come here and learn.

Hello! My name is Melodia. I do not have the skills to be either a cutter or tailor, but everything I make is bespoke! I am a home sewer that loves all things tailored.... I used to read and haunt the old forum, but never commented (too intimidated by all the wise professionals) and loved all the good advice everyone shared so freely.  In my next life I fully intend to do what I always wanted: become fluent in French and make my living tailoring garments. :)  My dream is to attend a tailoring course within the next decade as nothing makes me happier than a perfectly turned collar or perfectly tailored shoulders.  *sigh*  :-\

Hello, my name is David. I was a member of the old C&T forum. Just stumbled on this site after trying to visit the old C&T forum which I had not visited in years. Had no idea it was no longer active. I am a hobbyist and student of bespoke menswear. Glad another forum surfaced to fill in the void! Thank you to whoever is responsible!

Hi, my name is Carol. I am interested in getting back into tailoring. I took tailoring and flat pattern courses in college back in the late 80's. I loved making winter coats for myself and family members. Life got in the way and I stopped sewing for many years. I still have many of my old resources, and have collected many more. I'm very interested in sewing for myself and my fiancé. There is so much information out there for the beginner sewer, but not so much for the more advanced sewer. I am so excited to see a place that can help me advance my skills.
