Have you always relied on store-bought piping for your sewing projects? It’s actually quite easy to make, especially if you want control over the color or texture of your piping.
This quick tutorial will show you how to make piping for your next project, as well as how to sew it on a curved seam. I’m using our newest pattern, Rue, as an example. Rue features these great style lines that gently curve down and across the bodice, and it’s the perfect occasion for a vintage touch. Piping really helps these seams pop!
Hello, fabric enthusiasts! I’m Tanya from the sewing blog, Mrs. Hughes. I love vintage fashions and wearing retro dresses, but I tend to stick with the “fit & flare” silhouette. I stepped a little out of my comfort zone with the Colette Phoebe — a 1960’s style shift dress/jumper. I wanted to add a detail to this dress without changing the pattern design and its retro style, so I decided to sew a button-on-belt and share how I made it with you.
Hello from the team at Colette! We’re a small company that creates and publishes all kinds of resources and goodies for people who sew.
Since its establishment in 1942, Robert Kaufman Fabrics has been a family-run business. Over 70 years have gone by since Robert started this company, but the heart and soul lives on through the community we have built here. Now, Robert Kaufman Fabrics is located in sunny Los Angeles, California, where our in-house design studio designs some 3000+ new fabrics each year.
Fall is officially here. I was greeted by its crisp air and crunchy leaves on my doorstep this morning. Now I’m ready to go apple picking and start baking. How are you feeling about the changing seasons? Are you doing something fun to celebrate the beginning of fall this weekend? We’d love to hear all about it.
Here’s what brought us joy this week. I hope you like it.
