I’ve finished my spring wardrobe capsule with mostly thrifted houseware fabrics like sheets, drapes, and tablecloths! I’ve shared all the details in a video on YouTube. I’m covering super-important points such as…
- Things to consider picking fabrics for the Sew Liberated Metamorphic, Hinterland, Lichen Duster, and more
- My Metamorphic Dress linen apron hack
- Using the sandwich method for TOTALLY clean seams on gathered waists
- Thing I’ll change when I make the next Metamorphic dress and a warning (TLDR: don’t try French seams!)
- Why I don’t like waist ties and what I use instead
- Why you should not be like me and LISTEN when the pattern maker tells you to not use a heavy fabric! (I.E. How I almost messed up my Gypsum Skirt)
- A magic elastic waistband that’s comfy and looks awesome!
- Adding a bit of ease to the Stasia midsection for a more easy fit.
- How to add ties to a skirt and create a sassy bustle
- How it turns out I’ve been wearing the wrong colors my whole life (or, at least the last five years) and how I’m using Rit Color Remover to fix that.
For the video-averse, I’ll slip the pictures in right here on the sly…
