Learn to Sew

Now is the time to learn to sew if you haven’t already been bitten by the bug! At the recent Sewing for Pleasure show, Simplicity saw a huge increase in interest in sewing, much of it from ‘newbies’ who have caught the buzz that is around sewing at the moment. So welcome to you, one and all! As regular readers of my blog will know, I love to sew and am passionate about passing on my enthusiasm.   So do take a look at the whole range of Learn to Sew designs in the Simplicity collection. These specially created patterns include all the pattern pieces and easy to follow step-by-step instructions to complete the projects of course, but they also include some sewing tutorials to help you increase your sewing skills. The choices range from skirts, trousers, tops and dresses to PJs, kids’ clothes, bags and fancy dress costumes.   Take a look at Simplicity 2286, suitable for absolute beginners this A-line mini skirt pack will help you learn to choose the correct size, cut out the pattern, stitch seams, apply trims, make elastic casing for the waistbanding and stitch a hem. All useful transferable techniques you will use again on your next pattern! Simplicity 2314 is another Learn to Sew A-line skirt and this time you will learn to sew in a zip, add a waistband as well as apply trim.   Simplicity isn’t alone in producing this new range of patterns, New Look has also got some Sew New, Learning the Basic designs such as 6004, an A-line elasticated waist skirt and Burda has classified many of it’s easy patterns as Super Easy so you know you can have a go, even if you are just starting to learn to sew.   As well as all these new designs, there are also lots of easy, easy-to-sew and timed patterns that by their very nature, are quick and easy to make. There are Sewing Patterns for Dummies, including aprons, cushions and more too. So whatever you want to learn to sew, you can find it in the Simplicity, New Look or Burda ranges! So go on – have a go – and if you already sew, encourage your friends and family – point them in the right direction and watch as they get the bug too…
