Do you have any tips for sewing with a pattern?
If you are new to the craft and hoping to up your sewing game with one of our books featuring a range of stylish patterns, then we have some top tips to help you get started. When you first receive your pattern, they usually contain an envelope which holds all the pattern pieces and the instructions. If you like, you could photocopy pattern pages in the books to help preserve it for longer.
We recommend that you read all instructions fully prior to beginning your creation. Check the size guide, and take recent measurements of your intended wearer. This is particularly important for children as they can grow quickly. Consider the yardage requirements and the fabric tips, and use this as a guide when shopping our delightful range of fabrics. We always recommend purchasing extra fabric than what the pattern requests, just to be on the safe side. Check the key and glossary carefully to see what each of the individual markings means and whether the pattern includes seam allowance.
