Do You Want To Learn How To Sew?

Posted on

Learning how to sew is a very smart way to save money. The trick is to learn the techniques that will make your garment look like it came right out of a store. Here are some tips to help you along the way:

Look For A Class - There are many ways you can learn how to sew, of course. At your local library there are great self-help books that will give you step-by-step instructions on making your first article of clothing. However, consider taking a class.

Your local extension service might offer sewing lessons, and you can often find great classes at fabric stores, at your community college or even at your library. Another great idea is to simply as a friend or a family member who is already a seamstress to help you get started. Find somebody who is patient!

Getting Started - Whether you take sewing lessons or learn by yourself, it's really smart to start with something very simple. And, remember that simplicity can also equal loveliness. Just imagine Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy whose styles were actually quite basic. Their great look came partly from the gorgeous fabrics and the fact that their designers knew exactly what styles would look good on them. If you're in doubt as to what to select, go to a store and try on several different outfits to see which ones look best on you.

Buy The Right Sewing Machine - Perhaps you have inherited a machine or somebody has given you one as a gift. However, if you have to select your own, there are some things you should look for.

Have fun learning how to sew. If you have other questions, try contacting a company like The Sewing Studio Fabric Superstore.
