Exciting news over here! This new podcast (hosted by me!) will provide fashion trend inspiration, sewing tips and techniques for sewing the latest styles and building your budget-friendly yet runway-worthy wardrobe. Audience participation is encouraged, as we solicit questions from listeners to answer live. So we need your input…

We are in preparation to record our pilot episode and want to address your sewing/pattern questions about sewing for Fall. We have been awing over NY Fashion Week and taking in all the trends for Fall 2017 and how we can incorporate them in our own wardrobes. See the 12 core trends from the runway here that we will be addressing in our first episode. We will talk about suitable sewing patterns, specific sewing techniques to the trends and more.

    Love the futurism, but it is none-too-practical for work. I also kind of like wearing pants… so that look is out. Oddly enough, I was gifted with an 18 gallon tub of fluffy, stretchy, brightly colored fake fur. And I thought I’d never find a use for it…

    Ooh, I can’t wait for the new podcast! I will be listening in for sure!

    I really enjoy these trends for Fall ’17 (well, most of them!). I would love to make a great tailored pant suit for myself, but have a feeling it will take forever! Any suggestions on where to begin?

    Here’s what’s catching my eye from the 12 core trends link: 1. Shiny grey skirt from Balenciaga (Future Look). Very unusual front wrap line. 2. Alexander McQueen’s pantsuit just has the right lines. His Crafty dress – I want. That I would definitely like to see in a pattern. Who can do this? 3. No 21’s Ski Patrol skirt and sweater is just too cute. 4. Christian Dior’s String Theory dress – that too would make a nice pattern. But what type of fabric would be used for this technique? 5. Zadig & Voltaire’s Cross Word sweater. Though I don’t need the words, I’m intrigued by the fabric piecing on this. Would like to know best way to get such precise ’V’s. I’m hoping I don’t have to knit my own fabric, because I don’t knit!

    Have been trying fine this answer online everywhere and cannot, please help. I want to use my walking foot on my knits, which helps it lay flat and look better, but I can’t back stitch with my walking says the manual and I stI’ll tried but won’t work. How can secure my stitch at the beginning?

      either use smaller stitch length for the first couple of ml or stitch a few mls at your regular stitch length, stop , raise the foot and go back to the beginning of the seam making sure to loosen the needle thread by pulling some down through the tension. practice on a scrap of the fabric you need to loosen the thread enough so that the seam doesn’t bunch up when you begin stitching again from the beginning

    Can’t wait for the podcast!! My question would be: how to choose the perfect fabrics for patterns, and how to successfully change them up… eg: what happens if you use a drapey fabric instead of fabric with body and vise versa. Stuff like that. As a beginner on my way to low intermediate, fabrics are still a mystery to me.

    Looking at the pictures, I think my Fall wardrobe is missing a red oversized jacket featuring large metallic flowers. And of course, no pants but maybe some feathers for a bit of modesty. I can really picture this in my mind. Not that I would ever wear such a garment. Thanks for the slideshow, it gets my creativity going. Looking forward to the podcast.

    Sourcing fabric for cool-weather sewing – especially quality sweater knits – is a great topic.

    I’m excited for ep No. 1!
