simply sewing fresh ideas with fabric

Whether it’s sewing with a notoriously difficult fabric, hacking a pattern to fit you better or refashioning an old garment into something brand new... that’s what sewing is all about, right? Just going for it whole-heartedly and learning something new. “Don’t overthink it,” says Norris Dánte Ford, a creative individual who’s pushing the boundaries of DIY fashion for guys (see page 58).
