Have you ever considered learning to sew? Perhaps you have no idea where to begin or even what you want to sew. Or perhaps you already have a clear notion of what talents you wish to study. In any case, The Tailored Fit’s University of Sewing can assist you.

We’re going to concentrate on hand-sewing in this article. We won’t teach you how to execute these basic abilities in this post; instead, we’ll provide you with a list of basic skills to master as you learn to sew. Let’s get started!

1. Learn the basics of sewing terminology – The first thing you should do is learn the basics of sewing terminology. To learn more about sewing terminology, keep an eye on our website, blog, social media, and other sewing aficionados. Additionally (and obviously), rent or purchase books from the library to expand your shorts sewing pattern knowledge.

2. Use a needle to thread – This may appear to be a simple chore, but mastering it requires some effort. Using extremely sharp suitable sewing scissors to cut your length of thread, using the correct length of thread, using the right size needle for your project, and using the correct thread are just a few of the critical variables that will help you thread your needle properly.

3. Select your thread – As previously said, selecting the appropriate thread for the project at hand is critical.

4. Use a straight stitch to sew – Sewing a fundamental, straight stitch is a must-have skill that should not be overlooked on the path to sewing proficiency.

5. Attach a button – Adding a button to a garment or changing a button on a garment is a highly sought-after skill in sewing. Because almost everyone uses buttons, learning how to attach one to everything from shirts to duvet covers is a terrific idea!

6. Follow a trend – The desire to learn how to sew is frequently sparked by a desire to construct a certain clothing or object. Because it’s usually simple to use a pattern to construct such items, learning how to read and utilize one is almost as important as learning how to play an instrument.

7. Instruments – Any pastime or vocational skill necessitates the use of the appropriate tools. It’s quite improbable that you’ll be able to perform a project properly if you don’t have the necessary tools. Even though you produce a finished product, it may not be of the highest quality if you do not employ the appropriate equipment.

8. Make a knot in your sewing – You’ll need to know how to thread your needle and tie a knot while doing any sort of hand sewing, such as a button or a simple repairing stitch. You’ll also need to know how to tie a knot to end a stitch.

Density, patterns, and colours, among other things…

Fabric weight, designs, and colours are all important factors to consider while understanding or selecting textiles. Based on the colour and design, a heavy or light-weight cloth can be chosen. Most of your colour and pattern choices are personal. However, the density and thickness of your cloth might occasionally be a factor.
