DIY Style Episode 1

This week, Allyce helps you sew a stylish Reversible Tube Top, using a mix of new fabrics and deconstructed sweater pieces. In the first of our Superfast Sewing Tips, we teach you all about thread, and take you on a personal tour of Mood Fabrics (you’ve seen them on Project Runway!). They have a great new store in Los Angeles that you have to visit.

DIY Style Pilot Episode

In our pilot episode, meet our host, Allyce King, as she shows you how to make a super-easy first project, a “Laptop Skin”! It’s a cool slipcover for your laptop made out of polar fleece. We zip over to Portland, Oregon, where co-host Melissa Watson shares her thoughts on ripping apart old clothes to reconstruct them into something hip and fashionable. Next, meet Stephanie Link, a young fashion designer on the move, and get lots of great tips and inspiration along the way.
