In Ohio, the fall is a great time to wear those light sweaters, cardigans, jeans, leggings, sweater dresses and lightweight hoodies. It's the time where the days are warm but the nights cool off to almost chilly!
Sewing a garment can be scary! But, it doesn't have to be. I have assembled a list of 10 basic beginner patterns to get you into the garment world of stitching! Each pattern will teach you new techniques and revisit some that are a little bit tricker at first, like bias binding. But it will keep you practicing, which in turn will make the process much easier each time you complete the task!
Two years ago, I made the Tiny Pocket Tank from another Art Gallery Fabrics voile and loved everything about it! When we decided to start carrying Grainline Studio patterns at Sew Dayton, it was because we wanted patterns that are great staples for your wardrobe and easy, yet fun for the beginner seamster to sew up.
Colette patterns are patterns for the vintage seamstress! This pattern is fun and has fantastic instructions, it is a great pattern to help increase your technical skills.
When it comes to any hiccups or hard parts on this pattern, well there just isn't any. This really is a great beginner pattern and a perfect go to pattern for your tee shirts. I would HIGHLY recommend this pattern to anyone just getting into sewing knits, also as a staple pattern to have.
I always say, no matter how much we already know you can always learn something new. Open a book, website, or blog, take a class that is labeled for beginner, even if you think your skill is higher. I bet you will learn a tip or trick or two; there is something to be said for taking it back to the basics now and then, it's refreshing.
