Learn to Sew with Simplicity sewing patterns, which cover basic sewing skills in more detail than you might normally find in an everyday wardrobe design.
Each pattern pack picks out a few essential beginners' skills, but doesn't expect much other experience besides - so wherever you start with the Simplicity Learn to Sew range, you should be able to complete the sewing pattern without stumbling over your own lack of knowledge.
The most experienced fashion designers all had to start somewhere, and it makes good sense to use Learn to Sew sewing patterns to help you until you find your feet.
You can expect slightly more detailed instructions with these patterns, written and illustrated for newcomers to the craft, but by the time you have finished making each garment or accessory, you should have picked up some confidence in the specific skills listed on the front of the packet.
At the same time though, these are not just samplers and cushion covers - they are fully fledged sewing patterns that even experienced needlecrafters can use to create a good variety of clothing and accessories.
This means that you can learn to stitch seams, sew linings and work with a range of materials like furry fabrics; work with different sizes of sewing pattern; and add fasteners like zips and belts, all while making wearable clothes for you, your family, and even accessories for your pets.
