That’s right, we have Taylor of the popular men’s sewing blog TaylorTailor talking to us all about his latest projects, his day job, and his trip to Paris. He’ll also be talking to us about:

  • Why he started sewing.
  • His work from home day job with his wife.
  • His first projects and his affinity for jeans.
  • Where he gets most of his sewing supplies and fabric.
  • His backpack pattern.
  • The book he uses to draft patterns.
  • The formula he’s using for his latest men’s shirt.
  • and his advice for new sewers, especially men.

**Please excuse the ambient noise of the headset mics scratching our clothes. Note to self: never use headsets again. Sorry! My podcast headset was dead and we both had to use regular headphones.**


HERE is a link to his Paris posts.

HERE is a link to his wife’s posts on food in Paris, and HERE is one for her Paris trip in general.

** I decided NOT to link the site we talked about with all the negative comments because I’ve linked it once already in one of my other podcasts and I feel that one link in my podcast blogs is enough. I don’t want to send any more people their way and instead hope that we can start building each other up instead of tearing each other down. *
