Selvedge & Stretch Denim / Understanding Denim Fabric // Closet Core Patterns

Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canucks and Happy Hump Day to the rest of you! Just a quick post to let you know that the new issue of Seamwork Magazine is out and it features another article I wrote about fabric, this time on understanding and working with denim. It’s a nice companion piece to the one I wrote  earlier this year on the fabric industry for home sewists. It was also a good excuse to nerd out about this magic textile even more than I have already have. Let me know what you think!
