It's here! The new It's Sew Easy series, Timeless Techniques for Today's Fashion promises to be one of the best series ever. You'll feel like you have your own personal sewing coach guiding you stitch by stitch as you watch each show. Remember, each segment includes extra instructions you can access when you Join and Login to the show's website. I'll tell you more at the end of this post.
Sponsors like Brother International Sewing Machine Company provide everything from "dial and stitch," to top-of-the-line, "sew it all and sew much more" machines for use on the show.
This season resident design expert Angela Wolf uses the latest technology to help you create contemporary fashions. A multitude of additional talented instructors help you enhance your sewing skills with a mix of projects appealing to newbies yet challenging enough for seasoned stitchers too!
Currently you'll find a few of these episodes "live" online, including the Embroidered Lingerie you see here. Episode 906-1 is a full segment where I show the steps to make machine embroidered lace appliqués.
I used a beautiful reproduction pattern from Folkwear® for the vintage style lingerie. This pattern is updated for modern sizes, easy to sew, and perfect for embellishing with machine embroidered appliqués! You'll find lots of helpful information included in the pattern envelope.
