Sewing is a key skill in making beautiful garments

Sewing is a key skill in garment creation!

Making clothes that fit well is not a simple as many might think. Indeed the first step is the right pattern for the style.

So you’ve managed to make a good pattern but how do you actually put the fabric pieces together?
When you move on to sewing, one needs to make a number of choices that can greatly influence the final outcome.

What to consider when starting to make-up your final garment:

  1. Select the appropriate fabric for the style.
  2. Select the suitable seams for each case.
  3. Finding the right needle for the fabric can also be tricky.
  4. Determining the steps of the assembly process and how to put the garment together.
  5. Many bespoke tailored outfits require suitable lining and interlining.
  6. Finally, pressing is very important and can greatly contribute to the final appearance of the garment.

All these and much more, contribute to making up a garment of good fit and appearance.

Tips for good fit: Often it is useful to make a sample in toile or other fabric, similar to your choice for the final garment, in order to ensure the fit and style interpretation of the pattern.
