There’s nothing like the feeling of wearing a piece of clothing made with your own hands. As you work through the process of crafting your own made-to-measure masterpiece, remember that
You’re working toward an heirloom-quality, staple piece for your closet. Quality takes time so don’t be afraid to revel in the process.
Little things can go a long way when making a quality piece. Taking a moment to make your stitches straight or snip a bulky piece of fabric can save you time in the long run.
This class compresses years of sewing knowledge into a dozen lessons. Printing out the PDF or rewatching a lesson when you need to can be helpful when you’re starting out.
