Which Sewing Machine is Best For Dressmaking?
There are a couple of properties you need to look at to ensure you have the right sewing machine. While digital sewing machines are always the best option, as they provide a lot more functions, they can be a larger investment. Fortunately, entry level electronic sewing machines provide plenty of features these days.
Top Sewing Machine Features To Look Out For:
- One-step buttonhole: With this feature, you can easily place the buttonholes on your garments in minimal time. Creating a buttonhole only requires one easy step.
- The freearm: Some sewing tasks can be incredibly precise, and you may even need to sew in a circular fashion. The freearm enables you to do this without any restrictions.
- Adjustable needle positions: Being able to adjust the position of your sewing needle proves useful for a million different projects. Much like the freearm, it enables you to tackle more delicate tasks with greater ease.
- Different stitches: Some digital sewing machines come with dozens of different stitches, which can be interesting for more advanced crafters. For beginners, we suggest getting a machine with the basic utility stitches which include the straight stitch, zigzag, buttonhole stitch and the reverse stitch.

What Sewing Tools Do I Need?
A sewing machine and a good measuring tape are the basics, but you also need other tools to make your sewing experience that more efficient.
Here are some of the must-haves before you start with dressmaking.
- Measuring Tools: While a good measuring tape will get you quite far, a good ruler, measuring mat and even a curved ruler will ensure you can accurately measure on any surface.
- Fabric Scissors & Regular Scissors: You should always have a good pair of fabric scissors to cut your fabric. Fabric scissors protect the fabric against unravelling and ensure a more even cut. Pattern cutting is also a part of dressmaking, so you must have a pair of regular scissors.
- Chalk or Fabric Markers: There will always be a need to mark certain things on your fabric - this could be an alteration or even a line where you need to cut fabric. Once you have made the garment, simply wash the fabric to remove the chalk mark.
- Pins: Get essential dressmaking pins so you can accurately align your patterns and fabric while sewing.
