How to start sewing your own clothes: tips for beginners

by Administrator Sewingpartner

1. Choose simple fabrics
If you’re a beginner sewist, choose medium-weight fabrics made of natural fibres. They are not slippery, easy to work with, and your seams will turn out nice and straight. We recommend using cotton, linen, poplin, heavyweight wool, and heavyweight synthetic fabrics.
Avoid lightweight and delicate fabrics, such as silk and chiffon.

How to take your body measurements for a perfect fit

You probably know that the same size can differ from brand to brand. For instance, you usually buy size M sweaters in one brand, while if you shop in the other one you have to look for size S or size L. So don’t choose the sizes you pick when shopping for ready-made clothes when you’re looking at patterns on Sewing Partner – instead, open up the size chart provided by the pattern brand and compare your measurements to the measurements in the table.
