I’m really excited to share this week’s featured project with you! Why? Because it’s an apparel project, that’s why! We’re constantly on the hunt for tutorials that show you how to effectively use interfacing to add polish to your apparel projects. Honestly, who doesn’t love something new and cute to add to her wardrobe?;) For today, it’s the Big Bow Skirt by designer/blogger, Kate Blocher of See Kate Sew. This savvy seamstress uses a fab skirt tutorial to show you the magic of interfacing. You’ll get the step-by-step for creating your new summer staple and a sneak peek at what it looks like both with and without interfacing. As an added bonus, I thought it might be fun to do a color-inspired feature image. I couldn’t help but notice the skirt’s similarities to Dorothy’s famous Wizard of Oz frock. And, just like in the iconic film, the color contrast comes from the shoes. Nice styling, Kate;)!
