Sewing Pattern Questions
I am new to sewing, how do I get started?
Welcome to sewing! There are free tutorials you can find on the blog for learning the foundational sewing skills needed to sew your own clothing. I’ve also got a virtual workshop available especially for beginners. It’s a more structured program that guides you from selecting your sewing machine, essentials tools, learning how to read sewing patterns, all the way through completion your first project!
How do I figure out what size I need on sewing patterns?
A size chart is included with each pattern. All sizes that the pattern comes in is included in the pattern. Simply choose the size that best fits your body measurements. If you find that you cover more than one size, you can blend between sizes where needed. If this is your first time using our patterns, we recommend sewing a test garment to determine your fitting adjustments.
Where are the sew along videos?
Many of our patterns come with video sew alongs available on the blog. Additionally, we’ve got more detailed virtual workshops available for some of our patterns for makers who are learning to stretch their skills while completing their project.
What cup size and height are your patterns drafted for?”
Our patterns are drafted to fit a C cup with a height of 5’7″ (170cm).
