February’s Swatch of the Month design features the Marie Stencil, which debuted in The School of Making in 2018. The stencil design was inspired by the work of photographer Eugene Von Bruenchenhein and his wife, Marie. (More inspiration to come next Thursday…)
Today, we release a series of new DIY Kits featuring the bold, graphic stencil design.
Find The Frances Top Kit, Marie Cropped Car Jacket Kit, Marie Swing Skirt Kit, and Marie Pencil Skirt Kit among more DIY Sewing Kits and Inspiration.
