the sew fearless guide to shopping for leather

How To Shop For Leather

When of the first questions I always get when I mention my leather sewing to others is “but where do you buy it?!” Living in a small town means I am limited to Jo-Ann Fabrics (which doesn’t carry leathers) and the internet for my fabric shopping.  Fortunately, “the internet” has more and more options popping […]

Knit Skinny Binding Tutorial

Knit Skinny Binding Tutorial

I’m in a desperate sewing frenzy right now. It suddenly feels like summer and I have discovered that I have no summer maternity wear. Last week, I cracked down and sewed myself five Jalie racerback tanks. Unfortunately, my photographer-in-residence is busy with end-of-the-semester stuff anyways and we haven’t had a chance to photograph the tanks being worn […]

Ugly Pants

I suck at fitting pants, and I need help. phew. I’m glad I got that out. It is just that it is kind of awkward to admit when you made a public declaration that you were going to figure out how to do fit this year. These are my attempt at making the trouser pattern from Sandra […]

Style Arc, Ziggi Moto Jacket in wool melton, sewing by SewFearless.com

Ziggi Moto

This is probably the hardest and coolest thing I have sewn to date –  a moto jacket, in wool melton (from Fabric.com), using the Style Arc Ziggi pattern. I’ve been hearing good things about this indie pattern company for a while, and when Stacy Sews and Sew Maris announced their jacket sew-along, I knew it […]
