I really have a passion for sewing and it makes me feel so happy. So I really want to share these a really fun sewing tips that can get you into sewing. There's something about sitting in front of the sewing machine. Creating a new garment and I will share this enjoyment with you.
there are so many threads out there it's really hard to find out which one is the best one. It can be really confusing when you want to choose one for your project. there are special threads designed for different task like some are for embroidery some are for decorative stitching some are very thick and they are made from pure cotton and someone made from rayon to polyester some of very fine and some of very thick and coarse so if you choose the wrong Fred it can spoil your project the easiest way to figure out whether or not there it is correct for you. Silk thread is used for sewing very delicate silk garments because it can be removed without leaving any tears if you make a mistake is made from 100% silk period polyester thread is all-purpose thread it's good for anything so you can never go wrong with this kind of thread this will be usually good for if you're using a sewing machine. Embroidery Thread can be a little bit fine now and it's a bit grainy because it can be used to embroidery.
Use the right cutting tools it will change your entire project don't use the same scissors that he used in the kitchen on your garments it will ruin your project. If there's one thing that was drummed into my head in by my seamstress teacher was always make sure to use proper scissors for your projects. There's nothing worse than using a dull pair of scissors on fabric. You can get so many different types of scissors you can get trimming scissors. These scissors are about 4 inches on the blade and they used to neaten the edges when your sewing on the same machine. You can get embroidery scissors these are very tiny they kind of look like the scissors that you have for your nails and they have a small head and they're quite sharp to get into those corners it's really great for if you want to cut down bulk in the fabric in the seams. Seam rippers are very handy for if you make a mistake they have a sharp pointed hook side under the stitch so that you can undo the thread they available in lots of different sizes and they're perfect for any project there an essential in every seamstress sewing box. Paper scissors of course are very important because you need them to cut the patterns when you're doing Pattern making. Pinking shears are very good because they have a zigzag pattern and they good for neatening seams and creating decorative edges.
Yo! I'm chantelle I have been sewing for 14 years. I have always been involved in arts and crafts all my life, everyday I would create something new I couldn’t live a day without being creative and drawing or making something. I have creative blood flowing though my veins and nothing in this world could ever stop me from sewing, knitting or drawing. So for this dress I decided to Create a really simple pattern I love working with simple shape and making the garment perfect it's really hard to make a simple garment look beautiful. I love this way of designing because it excites me and it made me feel pleasure in designing the dress. I love designing my own session from scratch and making my own wardrobe it's so liberating and I think you should do it as well. for this dress I created a batwing top detail and the bottom was a circle skirt I did it over size so it would have that really draped kind of big and like that really oversized look it really helps to make it look stylish. And when I finish this dress I decided not to use my usual method I really wanted it to have a really handmade feel I actually like my dresses to look like they've been made by hand it just makes it look a little bit more special and all of the work that gets put into it looks beautiful. so for this dress, I actually spent two hours hand Hemming every single detail of the neckline and the skirt and sleeves.
so this is a new creation of mine and it is a little bit Japanese inspired but also a modern take on Japanese fashion. I really like the print of the fabric when I found this fabric in Shepherd's Bush I was so amazed it was in one of the little stores on Goldhawk Road.I was so mesmerised by the black pattern of this It really looks like something's been drawn across it so I wanted to create something that would emphasise the pattern and really would bring it to life I was looking to create something that was fun and exciting. I Sketched down the few design ideas I wanted to create something that was detailed but also very easy to make I wanted the simplicity of this shape to show through. So I decided to fold the fabric in half and create the dress just from cutting directly onto the fabric. For this design I decided not to create a pattern I wanted to use my creativity I think there's a kind of pure honesty when you actually just put scissors to fabric and just create. There is something so innocent about applying this technique and it really can bring about something exciting I did have an idea of how I wanted it to look, but when you're experienced with pattern cutting you kind of know what shapes look like beforehand so I had a mild idea of what I wanted to create when I started cutting the fabric.
