Sew Queer DC is an online store and series of classes started by DC local, Molly Stratton (he/his). Frustrated with how gendered mainstream fashion still is, Molly’s classes focus on showing queers simple alterations that make their clothing more useful and fitted to their gender, such as putting pockets in skirts and hemming your own pants. When he’s not sewing, he is creating snarky pins, designing jacket patches, and sewing Mothman dolls.

Molly recently co-authored a zine with his friend K. S. Brenowitz called “My Gender is (Patch) Pockets.” Naturally, it shows you how to DIY your own pocket on any shirt you like. You can buy it here:
