Want this machine!!!!
I for a little while (with the help of my lovely Nanna!) have been trying to learn how to sew. . . . .In my mind are lovely dresses and capes ready to be made, often a little over ambitious! I go into the fabric shops and can spend hours felling, looking and even smelling, but often leave without buying anything, a little overwhelmed. I made my first proper dress
I have been able to find a wealth of help over the beloved internet:)
My pattern with my first dress
- Seven deadly sins of sewing by Miss P - what not to do, almost as important as what to do:)
- How to make your clothes fit by Burdastyle - Burdastyle is a literal goldmine of information, this one I found really helpful as making the clothes you make fit is the most important step.
- Sewing workshop, drafting by Casey - Love this girl, so talented, and very helpful toolkit list.
I have started a Pinterest. . . . .why have I never done this before??? No more will I have hundred of folders clogging up my bookmarks, now I have the perfect online scrapbook to store all my sewing inspiration.
Have you taught yourself to sew? what were your best tips?
