    I’m pretty new to this site but would like to learn more on finishing touches… How to make a garment look more finished and tailored rather than looking like I made it : )

    I would like to see more bags and clutches. I also really loved the floppy hat tutorial from summer and would like to see more accessories for beginner sewers like myself.
