I recently came across several videos on YouTube regarding several different topics on buying, reading and understanding patterns. The information is great for someone new to sewing or to even a veteran seamstress that just wasn't sure what all the different markings on the pattern were really all about!
The videos cover topics such as: How to read a pattern, How to understand which body type the pattern will fit best, How to cut out the pattern, How to know how much material and what type of material you should buy for your pattern, How to layout and pin the pattern to your material and more!
You can find the videos on my website, sassybydesign.com, listed on my articles page or you can follow this link ! Enjoy Sewing!
