Sewing is supposed to be something I enjoy and when it gets to the point where it is not enjoyable and I was beginning to question why I was doing it I took a step back and had a think. I decided that I was being a bit hard on myself and that because there is so much free information and self help videos on the internet that I can learn all I need to know and while this method has been very helpful it has not given me all the answers I am looking for, so I have signed up for a 6 week sewing class.
We will be using the new look 6176 pattern
The course sets out to
- show how to measure yourself to get a correctly fitting garment
- how to interpret all the pattern markings
- cutting out and tacking your garment in preparation for sewing
- techniques for darts, seams, hems, buttonholes and zips
This seems to tick off a lot of things that I have been struggling with and that in turn should help with building my confidence.
I am also looking forward to the camaraderie and inclusion that usually comes in this type of learning environment.
Have you made new Look 6176? Do you have any top tips?
