Apparel Construction #AtoZChallenge Final Thoughts




I was excited about my apparel construction theme for this year's Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. I knew I could not give textbook-style lessons on the topics for each post. So my goal was to give a high-level explanation, so you lovelies would have a basic understanding under your belt. Beyond the posts, I hope a spark of interest takes hold to seek out further information.

Apparel Construction from A to Z: Z-Twists and Zebra Prints



This is the last day of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. I am glad and sad to see it end. Glad as I got to the last three letters because they are hard to find topics for. Sad because I had fun sharing some of the knowledge I had. Hopefully, I sparked some interest in getting to know more about the creative and manufacturing side of fashion. Today, is "Z" day and I couldn't really find any useful "Z" topics to share. So I am just going to wing it and have fun.

  • Those long strings you sew with.
