So you are new to sewing (or it's been a while) and you need to start slowly?
You are in the right place.
The Sewing Revival patterns take you through the process step-by-step so you learn as you go. You can learn something new in the RESOURCES section of the main menu, or by simply working through the tips & techniques detailed within the instructions of every sewing pattern.
So where do you start if you are a TOTAL BEGINNER?
1. Read through the following blogs to get started with downloading, printing and compiling your sewing pattern.
SEWING PATTERNS FOR BEGINNERS:
You know how to thread the sewing machine, can sew a straight stitch and a zig-zag. You've also worked through the Easy Sewing Projects and now you are ready for a little more.
These patterns will teach you the basics like inserting elastic to create gathers for function (like a waistband) or style feature (like a gathered neckline or hem). You will learn to sew darts (to create shape in a garment) and sew a facing (the easiest way to finish a curve on a neckline).
