North West, Unit...
I make no apologies in this post for taking us ALL back to the very roots of fashion sewing and the completion of our sewing projects.
Over the last few months, "Fashion Sewing Blog" has received more and more questions and queries on this topic from many a confused reader.
So many fashion sewers, frustrated and stuck, seeking advise to get them over that every increasing hurdle.
Understanding Your Sewing Pattern Envelope
Our fashion sewing journey begins with the sewing pattern. Designed to help us make the decision to purchase, showcase its designs and styles, the sewing pattern envelope is the first to catch our eye.
I’m guessing, but the back of the envelope is probably where the frustration starts to set in. A plethora of information including recommended fabrics, notions, types of interfacing, special tools and those ever confusing measurement charts bombard our eyes.
