In 2023, we had three major video series at The League for which I did the majority of my sewing for the year: our How To Sew Pants, our Travel Handmade video series, an our Intro to Activewear video series. Between these three projects, I made over 40 handmade garments in the space of one calendar year!

This is BY FAR a record for me. I wrote on my personal blog about how I got all that sewing done, and what I learned from it. Below, see the YouTube version of a video featuring me wearing ALL THE THINGS–members can also view the League-exclusive extended Director’s Cut video summary of all those handmade garments!

ALL the handmade garments

This list covers ALL the garments I wear in the video!

Not shown on video (but sewn in 2023):

ALL of that is feedback that’s valuable to sewing the best garments of our lives, and THAT is the focus of every video and every video series I share here with members of The League!

In the video exclusive for League members, I’m pretty candid about which garments I LOOOOOOVE and which ones I love less. Part of the on-going conversation we have here at The League is that NONE of these are “failures,” they’re experiments. These are garments where I learned I need to size up, or size down, or remove an inch from the rise, or use a different serger thread.

The video series:

Watch ALL the League video series to sew along with me! Garments above marked with an * are FULL step-by-step sewalongs, each with their own full-length video. Garments with no * are included in the before-and-after videos for each series, complete with analysis and pattern info.

Each series is a “course” style with modules that include ALL the details, including sources for fabric and notions; tips and techniques; links to additional resources; and conversation about each pattern and how to make them work for you. The Pants video series also includes fitting and muslin skills!
