The School of Making Book Series

The School of Making™ books are comprehensive guides to our processes and techniques for hand-making garments and home goods. Use them in conjunction with our DIY Sewing Kits. We choose to open source our methods and patterns to aid in our efforts to make our products more accessible to a wider audience. The School of Making™ is a natural outgrowth of the book series and our desire to maintain a sustainable, multi-faceted business.

The Factory Dress Sleeve

By popular demand, we have created a sleeve for the Factory Dress for those of you who have either subscribed to Build a Wardrobe or purchased the Factory Dress pattern online. The sleeve was drafted to fit the existing armhole on the pattern, so no adjustments will need to be made before attaching your sleeve.
