When you make modern workwear for fix-it-up women, you learn a thing or two about these hardcore DIYers. They’d rather get power tools, chainsaws, welders or rototillers for any gift-giving occasion, including their wedding. They can (and often do) teach the guys at the hardware store a thing or two when they’re out picking up a few things. And curbside trash can always be transformed into treasure with a little elbow grease and a fresh coat of paint.

We asked our customers to tell us their favorite DIY truisms, so put down the caulk gun and enjoy this list of our favorites.
