Janome MC6600P sewing machine query

I am trying to do some simple stitching on my inherited Janome MC6600P machine. The presser foot will not lower all the way down to the feed plates. I'm assuming, because Mum had it set up to quilt thick fabric, that this is some sort of adjustment that needs to be altered, but how? [more inside]

Artsy Boutique Dress Brand Experts Needed

Do you know who makes this dress? I saw it in this window a month ago but didn't try it on, because the boutique this window belongs to is way out of my budget. Many things that catch my eye that they sell are over $275, gulp. This might be also. [more inside]

Wanted: A 100% rainproof jacket that's not clammy to wear in hot weather

Is there such a thing? Can anyone recommend a brand or fabric that satisfies both these conditions? Or must it always a compromise between the two?

Help me pants myself. difficulty level: nerd, male

I have a pair of men's lululemon yoga (?) pants that, after a year of near continuous wearing, need replacing. I think they're most like the Discipline style they list on their website: straight legged, zipper side and back pockets, drawstring with elastic waist, loose foot opening, not cuffed like joggers.

Business casual clothes for an aging punk woman in academia?

I'm returning to campus after a year plus of wearing my usual Prana Briann pants, black merino wool crew neck t-shirts, and black zip up sweater. This time, though, I am taking an appointment on a committee that may involve meetings with the president, and this is a little too casual. How can I up my business casual game and stay true to my low-key, not particularly feminine, black-clad 50 year old self? [more inside]

Describe your updated comfy office "uniform"?

Based on what I'm seeing in stores, I fear my standard women's-bizcaz template (skinny/ tapered slacks + loose print shell or T + solid knit blazer or cardigan) may be entering its twilight years. I sort of get the new '20s silhouettes, but don't quite understand how to translate them onto non-model, non-teen bodies in middlebrow-suburban-professional cultural settings. Little help here?

What to pack for Singapore?

I’m dreaming of a trip to Singapore when travel is permitted. I’m not a petite gal, and know that shopping when I get there is probably out of the question. I love to plan and be prepared! What should my capsule wardrobe include for my trip to Singapore? North American size 14/16 and almost 6’0” tall (180cm). Size 12 feet.
