So I kind of am thinking about making a DIY fashion channel, and I wanted to ask a couple questions.

1) Do you think it is a good idea to try and take on such a task?
2) If I did do it what sorts of projects would you want to see.
3) Are there any faux pas that I should try to avoid that you've seen in other channels?
4) What do you look for in DIY videos?
5) Any other comments/advice that you have.

I don't really want to go into this blind if I did decide to do it. I want to try to gather as much information as possible and then come up with an organized game plan. I think I would want to offer a good mix, variable skill projects, so like something from beginner skills to advance stuff.
 
Also I'm not exactly sure if this is where this topic belongs, but it seemed the most likely option.

My fave vid tutes all follow the same pattern: really good lighting, concise instructions (whether spoken or text on the video), and no umming, ahhing, or problems. Just bing bang boom, done.

I completely agree with Alexus. Quality video and quality content is essential. You could also do some very very simple technique tutorials such as seam finishes or attaching bias binding.

I personally love to watch DIY videos, even if it's something I already know how to make.
besides quality of the video, try and make a lot of things that are popular beginner DIY. Like circle skirts, corsets/bustiers, and refashions.
Also, with Halloween in the distant future, you have plenty of time to plan and make several low-maintenance costumes or costume accessories. Lots of people turn to YouTube during Halloween, and it's a good way to get noticed Cheesy
I hope this helps, and I would totally watch your videos, I'm kind of an addict Cheesy
