2012 Recap | Tutorials, Tips & Tricks

I thought I’d do a few 2012 posts, the first being this recap of all of the tutorials, tips and tricks I’ve shared this year. I made a lot more tutorials this year and even made my first two videos! I hope to continue with the videos as well as more pattern and sewing tutorials. I have a few things planned for 2013 in this vein so I’m excited about that. Without further ado, here’s what I shared in 2012.


bagging a jacket lining

how to achieve smooth bias faced necklines

frenching all your seams

sewing your maritime shorts

inserting a zipper with a free hanging overlay

inserting a fly front zipper


drafting a lining for an unlined blazer, jacket or coat
