      Did you hear that I'm teaching an online bra making class? In one hour, I walk you through constructing a bra from start to finish, and I'll cover choosing a bra pattern, finding your size, tracing and cutting tips and construction. Click HERE to sign up now!

       

      One of the most ingenious tutorials in a long time, HEATHER shows us how to make our own cutting table. Now, if only I could learn how to use a drill gun.

       

      Who says you can't wear black during summer? GERTIE just made a stunning, full circle skirt dress. She even biked in it while wearing 4-inch heels!

       

      Not only do I love MEGAN'S zipper from Eucalypt dress, but I also love how her little ones have become her photographers!

       

      Having trouble finishing a curved hemline? Follow ROCHELLE'S tutorial for an easy and clean how-to.

       

      Marce's getting technical. Miss Oonaballoona posted a super easy JUMPER TUTORIAL. Only involving a rectangle and triangle, this is a quick make.

       

      NORMA shares her newest notions, the tools that she recently picked up and is now in love with.

       

      I love a good interview; DIXIE featured a neat one, conducting a Q&A with costume and historical sewer Andrea Schewe.

       

      How do you get rid of me-made items? SARAI discusses this very topic.

       

      Check out HEATHER'S new studio. I love the bright, Scandinavian aesthetic and stained glass windows.

       

      LAUREN finally finished her OAL (outfit-a-long) and you must check out what she made!

       

      Have you seen Grainline Studio's new pattern, THE ALDER DRESS? Hop on over to see one of the best summer staples. Also, Jen is currently hosting a sew-a-long if you want to join.
