Coming up on New Model Lamé we are going to be having a skirt draft-along. I’ll detail how to take a straight skirt block or sewing pattern and turn it into a pleated A-line skirt with gore panels.
I also plan to start a series on alterations. I have a pile of clothes that either don’t fit any more (or to be honest never did) that I want to get wearing. There are some easy alterations that can make a big difference to the fit of your clothes.
The other topic I wanted to cover was styling your handmade items. I will take some of my own handmade garments and see how versatile they can be. It’s easy to look at what you have and think “There’s nothing to wear” but with a little thinking creatively you can get more out what you already own.
