Hot! Make This Look Archives

Mtl-archive-small Just a reminder: If you want to view past Make This Looks, I've collected them all over here. If you're a Tumblr user, you can follow MTL and it will appear in your dashboard.

Also, if you like a look, be sure to favorite it on Tumblr. It helps me learn what sort of looks people are drawn to and want to see more of.

Also: Want The Sew Weekly to figure out how to make a particular look? Drop us a line with a link to the original garment as well as a little explanation of why you'd like to make the dress (it can be very short).

  1. Make This Look is one of my absolute favorite features of the blog now!! I want to try so many of them. Thank you!

  2. I love your MTL posts! They’ve already been responsible for adding several projects to my lengthy to-do list of sewing projects – sadly on hiatus until after I take the GRE next month.

  3. I also posted this on gertie’s blog post, but I doubt she’ll pick it for some reason. It doesn’t seem her style. Anyway, I would love some pointers on how to make something akin to this:

  4. Oh, I forgot to say why I’d want to make something like that dress. The simple reason is that I think it’s absolutely stunning. One of the most striking dresses I’ve ever seen. I can see myself making something in a simple cotton voile with a shorter hemline for more every day wear and then a fancier version for a wedding or special occasion. Help me out, please!
