A section featuring casual cottons includes tips for sewing perfect Peter Pan collars, how to sew a simple T-shirt dress, a fun bugs picture smocking design and pattern adaptation for adding box pleats and ruffles to some of our favorite summer dress patterns. And for fans of traditional heirloom, embellishment takes center stage in our special fine sewing section with hand and machine embroidery on delicate fabrics such as netting, how to make a unique puffy pocket and a vintage-inspired bluebird embroidery design.
