Lately, I’ve been sewing much simpler patterns, but taking time in finishing to make my items look really polished. There is nothing quite like the secret joy of knowing your skirt is lined in fun colour or that your pockets are made of a contrasting fabric. I’ve assembled some of my favourite ways to jazz up easy projects.
- Bind with bias tape.
- Play with direction on patterned fabrics.
- Make self-fabric buttons.
- Put constrasting fabric in unexpected places.
- Get your own labels made. My sister made me a logo ages ago and I decided to finally do something with it. I found a company on etsy that prints labels super cheap (and is based pit of Quebec, which is a plus.) I still get a thrill every time I see it and can imagine myself at the helm of my very own atelier.
