What should I keep in mind when sewing tops, vests and jackets?
Some sewing projects are much more difficult than others. If you are new to sewing, it may be best not to start with a tailored, lined jacket with lots of pattern pieces and fancy items such as collars, button holes and pockets. Start off with a simple sleeveless top or tunic or a T-shirt to practice! Most sewing patterns will give an indication of the level of difficulty involved, so take a look at the image that shows the back of the pattern envelope (top left of most product pages) to see what is involved, the type and amount of material needed and other useful information.
How will I know if the pattern will fit me?
Most sewing patterns will cover a range of sizes, and measurements will be given on the pattern. Always measure yourself carefully as the pattern sizes for sewing patterns may vary from sizes for shop-bought items. Also check if the sizes given are for the actual garment or to fit your body size, as you need a few centimetres "give" in a garment if you want to be able to sit down or bend over.
Where can I find fabric for making tops, vests and jackets?
Once you have found a pattern you like, check what type of fabric is recommended for the garment. Then you can simply browse the many pages of dressmaking fabrics available here at Spotlight to find your favourite colour and design. Make sure the fabric width compares to what is given in the pattern, as you may need to buy more or less material if you buy fabric of a different width. All Spotlight dressmaking fabrics are available by the metre, so you can buy as much or as little as you need.
