Guys, guess what?!
I’ve created a platform where you can sell your sewing services! Continue reading
It basically only requires a few four sided shapes
This post is truly for beginners because of it’s simplicity. It takes about five minutes to draft yet you get to create a garment that looks pretty good! Continue reading
Before going away on a sewing break I created a tutorial for an off-shoulder dress. Make a statement by drafting and sewing together your own off-shoulder dress with the added glamour of the ruffles sleeves. I show you how to draft the pattern and the way to construct your dress. Continue reading
shoe garment fits…
Seam allowances are essential for every sewing project regardless of whether you’re using a self drafted or bought pattern. Without a seam allowance, nothing would fit together properly.
