Sew Confident! May 2016

Sew Confident! May 2016

​Some of you have been anxiously awaiting this month's Sew Confident! tutorial. It's finally here!

This month is all about graphic details for shirts. Briana wanted to design a button down shirt with colorful bindings like one she found on Pinterest by a Japanese designer. We used the Zona Jacket as the base pattern and experimented to find the best technique for application which we share with you in this tutorial. 

This project was a team effort and we are all excited with the final result!

Sew Confident! is a yearly subscription to monthly tutorials that feature in-depth project descriptions and how-tos. In this month's tutorial, you will learn how to apply ready-made bias binding with perfect results and how to make your own bias binding with a few special tools. You can even customize your binding with fun prints and luxurious silks. 

To purchase a subscription for 2016, click here. For previous years, click here. And be sure to check out our bundled tutorials for the best of topics like Fitting and Sewing with Knits.
