Love Sewing April dressmaking q&a dressmaking sos

In this month’s (April) Dressmaking Q&A for Love Sewing magazine I’m answering questions on some of the most common problems encountered by every newbie / beginner sewist I’ve ever met:

  • how to choose your first sewing machine
  • how to make your seam allowances really neat
  • the best ways to start and stop sewing on your sewing machine.

Remember, if you would like to see your question answered, send it to me on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #dressmakingSOS or send me an email and I might use it in a future issue!

My Dressmaking Q&A in March’s Love Sewing Magazine

Love Sewing Q&A March15

This month in Love Sewing (issue 11), I’m answering questions on pre-washing your fabric, cutting on the grain line and pattern sizing.

Even better, across the page from me is the lovely Claire-Louise Hardie, aka the Thrifty Stitcher who is the behind-the-scenes sewing producer of the Sewing Bee with an in-depth piece about one of my favourite subjects…..sizing!

February’s Dressmaking Q&A for Love Sewing Magazine

Love Sewing Dressmaking Q&A

In this month’s (issue 10) Q&A I’m talking about:

  • what garment to make for your first dressmaking project
  • how to sew in a straight line (not as easy as it sounds, especially for newbie sewers!)
  • the mystical tension setting on your sewing machine which always seems to bamboozle sewers new and experienced.
