Greetings ducklings!

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…

Topics covered

  • 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.
