Join Professor Pincushion and begin sewing clothes and other projects in no time with sewing basics broken down to their simplest form! This Beginner Guide to Sewing is part textbook, part how-to, and all cheeky fun. It's perfect for anyone interested in learning how to make clothes - it assumes the reader has no sewing experience and breaks everything down to simple steps, making it easy for anyone to follow along. In typical Professor Pincushion style, the tone is lightened with humor to provide an enjoyable learning experience. Beginning with an overview of sewing tools and supplies, she covers topics like using a sewing machine, reading commercial patterns, basic garment sewing techniques, and she even gives you five projects to get you started.
- Five key projects to get readers started and help build their confidence
- Projects gradually increase in difficulty, allowing new sewers to build up their skills and knowledge as they go
- Includes downloadable patterns and full instructions for pajama shorts and a t-shirt
