This issue of Sew Long and Sew Happy includes full instructions to draft and make a kimono robe for yourself or anyone else. We explore different construction techniques for combining knit and woven fabrics in the same garment and give you almost too much information on how to customize your robe.
This issue also includes an explanation of the infamous Vagina Pillow that Zede shared in the Self Sewn Wardrobe Facebook group. If that’s not your cup of tea, swipe on past the story, but we decided that it’s important for us to set an example of being “unapologetically ourselves” in the sewing world so that others can do the same!
The first issue of “Sew Long and Sew Happy” takes an in-depth look at the Salmon Prom Dress Zede made for Mallory in 2005. This prom dress was the subject of episode 76 of the Sewing Out Loud Podcast, so if it piqued your interest, some juicy photos and exclusive details await in this issue!
There’s also a printable “Welcome to My Fabric Library” sign at the end of the zine so that people know how to properly refer to your “stash” from now on.
