MTL: Make Fleur Own Music Dress
For this week's newsletter*, I introduced the Make This Look feature. Here's what I wrote:
Make This Look aims to break down ready-to-wear looks into bitesize sewable inspirations. Whether it's a cure for sewer's block, a way to create something that will actually fit just right or simply a way not to spend $200 on a mass-produced slip-dress, Make This Look is meant to embrace the slow clothes movement.
If you're a Tumblr user, you can follow Make This Look over at makethislook.com. If you're not, don't worry, this feature will remain part of The Sew Weekly. If you've seen a look that you would like The Sew Weekly to give the MTL treatment, drop us a line with a link to the original garment.
*Yes, there's a Sew Weekly email newsletter that attempts to be a weekly mailing. In it, I reveal next week's theme, feature community creations and write about something happening that week. You can subscribe over here.
Onto today's MTL!
