Getting Started With Sewing

Developing the ability to make your own clothing is a wonderful skill to have, but to start sewing can be a little intimidating. That's why we’ve created this beginner sewing guide. We start off by talking you through what tools you need in a beginners sewing kit. Then we look at what pattern size you are. Next you'll learn about what's included in a sewing pattern and how to read our patterns. Finally can take a look at all the amazing types of fabrics you can buy to create your dream wardrobe.
