Behind the Seams with Re:Fashion, our new series on bluprint!

Behind the Seams with Re:Fashion, our new series on bluprint!

WELL HELLO DRESSFORM OF MY DREAMS. Y'all, dreams *do* come true in Hollywood!

Though that leggy dressform didn't make it home with me, I really do mean that bit about dreams, because in the past year, sewing and acting have come together for me like fine champagne and dark chocolate; it's a dream come true that I didn't even know I had. Our new series, Re:Fashion, just launched on bluprint, and I am actually beside myself. I am most certainly and ridiculously happy to be beside Rob, who also stars in the show, bringing his special blend of sewing insouciance to the mix. (The looks, people. THE LOOKS.)

Re:Fashion is about, well, refashioning, but it's also about getting into what works for your closet, upcycling, looking past a pattern envelope, trying something new, shifting gears when something goes awol...it's Re(garding) Fashion. We wanted this show to be an extension of the blog, and so over the month of August (my birthday month!) I'll be highlighting each of the five "series 1" episodes in my usual blog style--i.e, a finished garment post, in which I talk very little about actual sewing. If it ain't broke don't fix it, eh? Don't worry, over on the series I do talk actual sewing.

We had an amazing team of stupendously creative people behind this, and hopefully, our efforts will inspire you to bust into your closet, your patterns, your building's recycling center, and wreak some havoc with fabric.

Most importantly, we hope to give you a break from the world, and make you smile.

(The detail type stuff: for those who don't know, Craftsy Unlimited is now bluprint, an extension of NBC U, the network that is also giving us the gift of Amy Poehler & Nick Offerman in Making It *YES IT HAPPENS TOMORROW NIGHT AND I DON'T CARE IF I SOUND LIKE AN AD, I AM DANCING WITH UNABASHED JOY OVER HERE*. Craftsy as we know it still exists-- you can still buy à la carte classes and enjoy your life there.  But for the cost of a handful of Craftsy classes, you can subscribe to bluprint, and get unlimited access to all of those Craftsy classes, plus new series like Re:Fashion. Details over! See you August 1st with the first behind the seams ;)

  2. Thanks for the headsup on your Bluprint series, I have Bluprint but have not explored it too much yet. I've watched the first two videos so far. Your creativity really shines! And it's nice to see Rob appear. Can't wait to see the others.

  15. Binge-watched the whole series yesterday evening and loved it - you inspired me to look at my stack of clothes that I had planned to refashion (but have left sitting around a looong time) and actually make a start! Thank you for the entertainment and the kick-start!
