Change is in the air! In this show you'll see how to sew something fresh and new inspired by current trends.
In the first part of the show you'll learn some costume making tips created with items from both the craft store and the hardware store. You'll also learn how to create straps using fabric that closely imitates real suede, and add rivets to the straps with special tools. Cheryl gives you tips, tricks, and cautions for using these all of these tools effectively.
In the second part Angela Wolf continues her shirtdress sew along. Watch as she shows how to stitch a crisp collar. For pressing she uses a tool known as a Tailor's Point Press. My own tool looks almost identical and I've been using it for decades. In fact right now it sits within inches of my ironing board, ready when I need it for all manner of pressing operations. CLICK HERE to read a PDF tutorial on this item. Stitching is of course important but proper pressing techniques can take a project from so-so to a standout item you'll be proud to say you made with your own two hands!
In the third segment designer Linda Lee shares techniques for sewing today's trendiest open-weave fabrics. Finding fabric is usually the fun part of designing something new but then there's always the challenge of figuring out how to make it work. In this part of the show Linda shows both sewing machine and serger techniques for fabrics that may include more open space than actual fiber in the weave of the fabric.
