We were so excited to be a part of the new national sewing television show It’s Sew Easy and we were even more excited that our own BurdaStyle Ambassador Gretchen Hirsch was invited to host a segment using our Linda Skirt as her on-air project! Watch Gretchen to get great tips for creating your own vintage-inspired skirt, including how to use a horsehair hem for a super-femme, full skirted effect.

It’s Sew Easy is a national sewing series available to all Public Television stations in the United States. Featuring appearances by sewers, crafters and designers like Janet Pray, Angela Wolf, and Suede from Season 5 of Project Runway; and partners like Brother, Rowenta, Coats & Clark and The Warm Company – It’s Sew Easy definitely isn’t your grandmother’s sewing show! For more information including video segments, project ideas and where to find participating stations in your hometown, check out their website at itsseweasytv.com!

    Do you still topstitch when the hem is 10 cm wide? Or would you hand stitch?
