Continuing on our sewing organization kick, here is another video that we found useful. Our tip is to make time for organizing. We had to literally force ourselves to straighten up and organize one shelf on a book case. But once it was done, it looks so nice and feels so refreshing. Watch the video, and tell us how you organize your sewing room.
If you're like us, keeping your sewing room neat and tidy can be a bit of a challenge. It's frustrating when you can't find things while working on a project because things are out of place. So for this week's Video Of The Week, we've been researching different tips, tricks, and tutorials on sewing room organization. We came across this YouTube video that you might enjoy if you're looking for organization ideas. We put one of the methods to use, using scrap fabric and glue to cover an ugly cardboard box for use as a storage container. What we love about this tip is that it's quite an inexpensive way to organize while adding to the decor of your sewing room!
Aside from the video below, here is a list of other links on sewing room organization you may find useful:
Here's a dilemma we all face every now and then. You've gained a little weight but you're still using your old dress form because you either can't afford to buy a new one or you plan to loose the weight soon and don't want to buy a new one. Has this ever happened to you? It's a situation we're facing currently. As a result, we decided to do a bit of research on solutions and this week's Video Of The Week is what we found.
The solution? Pad your dress form. Who knew it only takes a few things like rulers, pins, padding, bra, batting, and felt as explained in the video. Don't believe me? Just watch the video.
Have you ever wondered why couture and special occasion dresses are so expensive? Well today's Video Of The Week will give you a glimpse inside the making of a couture gown. It will help everyone appreciate the attention to detail that goes on behind the scenes. Just by watching this video from Nigel Chia, we see that it must take an extreme amount of time and effort to hand sew all the beading and sequins. Hence the reason for the exorbitant pricing. Now that you can appreciate it, why not try your hand at it? All it takes is a swatch of fabric and a pack of sequins. We'll try our hand at it, hope you will too.
Did you catch our last post on the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show? Were you able to recreate any of the looks? If not, we've got another great Video Of The Week from April's YouTube channel. She'll step you through how she fabulously transformed an over sized dress into a lovely flowing skirt and crop top ensemble. Absolutely AMAZING! It's actually similar to model Maggie Lane's ensemble look, worn at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show after party. So follow the video and give it a shot . We can't wait to see your creation, if you so dare.
We hope you enjoyed your Halloween, but now it's time to get back to the normal grind. So for this week's video of the week, we're bringing you a short explanation of how to drape and measure a bodice for pattern making. We're sharing this video found on YouTube . The narrator gives clear explanations and takes you step by step in the directions. You can try this one out, as it is sure to be a great foundation if you are just starting to sew. As always, if you make it tell us about it in the comments!
Did you happen to catch Michelle Obama's dress that she wore to the Final State Dinner? We did and it was fabulous! We did some research and found out it was none other than the iconic Versace. Seems you can't go wrong on any red carpet wearing a Versace gown. Disagree? Shout out an example in the comments. We'll take you up on that argument. It could make for some interesting commentary.
Still trying to decide how to complete your summer wardrobe? Hopefully you started with our summer dress trends post. One of the trends for the summer is to show off a little shoulder. So once again, we're sharing a cool video from one of our favorite's, April's "Thrifted Transformations" YouTube show.
Hopefully you'll follow her tutorial to create a top for the summer. We'll be making one in the future so tune in, and share what you've made with us so we can feature it in a future post! And remember to sign up for our Newsletter in the sidebar!
Continuing our Graduation series, we hope you enjoyed our Graduation Gift Guide. Your Grad will also need a dress (if it's a girl of course). We promised to help you sew one for your graduate, so without further ado, we present this week's video of the week: "How to Make A Prom Dress." It says prom but why not use it for graduation?
