Insides Out – Competition time

Wow! It has been amazing seeing and reading all of my guest bloggers who have contributed to my ‘Insides Out’ feature. I am sure it has inspired you to try different techniques when finishing the insides of your garments? It has inspired me.

We had Di showing us the tricky techniques she used on her Chanel inspired jacket. Becca shared her contrasting facings and seam finishes. Adam discussed the difficult skills of flat felling seams on his dress shirt. Simona had a ‘rant’ but showed us some lovely Hong Kong finished seams. Elaine looked at the fiddly tasks of hand stitching linings and some amazing steam punk style fashion. Nicky delved into boning and labels with her post and finally Kelly-Lou talked us through what she has learnt since beginning her sewing adventures.

Thanks to all that contributed and for everyone that read them! Now for some
