Our latest video is all about FABRIC! Penny Payne, our longtime fabric editor, explores various fabric options for several new patterns from Butterick, McCall’s and Vogue Patterns. She also manages to get in a little fabric education, explaining things like scuba knits and “no-print prints.” Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments section. If you find it helpful we’ll definitely look at doing more fabric videos.
Wrap Dress Sewalong update: This week I’ve been working on the muslin for my niece’s wrap dress. I’m just concerned about the bodice section, so that’s all I cut out and will stitch up. See my iPad in the photo? I’m binge-watching House of Cards on Netflix as I sew. Worth it alone for Claire’s sleek wardrobe. Don’t forget to read my co-host ReDpants Design’s post on fabric for your wrap dress. Hope you get in a lot of sewing this weekend!
