I have had so much fun with this series. I am so glad you are here, and I am so glad I could share a little bit of my knowledge with you. To end it, I just want to send a little encouragement your way. Now that I have shared with you tips, tricks, and different techniques, I hope you can add these tools to your tool belt. I hope even more though, that you can find your spot in the sewing clothes world. There are so many different options when you get started. The best part about it is that you can sew exactly what you want. Here is a few tips that will inspire you to sew exactly for your style.
Start a pintrest board filled with your style of clothing. Pin anything and everything from ready made garments, to sewing patterns, to color inspirations. Through this you will really start to see your style and help you get a better idea of what types of clothing you love. It will help you when you are online shopping for fabrics/patterns. You can easily click on your pintrest board to see what colors and styles you are drawn to.
Getting the right garment
This goes hand in hand with finding inspiration. Just know that if you don’t like it in the ready made world, you won’t like it in the handmade world. Make sure you sew clothes that fit your taste. That’s why having an inspiration board is so great!
Give yourself some grace
I think the most important thing to remember when you are sewing (and most likely for anything else) is to hold yourself to a standard of grace not perfection. It’s always a great thing to strive for being the best you can be, but it’s not a great thing when you beat yourself up for not hitting perfection. So you messed up a garment, don’t beat yourself up over it, learn from it and try not to make that same mistake next time. Be patient, give yourself some grace, and wear that handmade garment proudly!
Finding your place
Like I said, there are so many options for sewing clothes. Maybe it is up-cycling ready made, or even tailoring ready-made to fit you perfect. Maybe it is sewing completely from scratch from a pattern you self drafted, or sewing from a pattern you bought. Maybe it is drafting a pattern from a ready made garment you are in love with and can’t buy anymore. Or maybe it is simply sewing from no pattern whatsoever. Wherever your spot is, be there and love it!
Thank you so much for joining this journey with me! I hope it inspired you and helped you understand sewing clothes better!
