Dressmaking Fundamentals for Beginners (part 2 of 2)

• Press the dress after you completed making it. As a tip, press the dress on the fabric’s interior side. This is to avoid creating any burn mark on your new dress.

As additional tips, make sure you are using sharp scissors especially when cutting the fabrics. You surely do not want to mess up as you cut the fabric according to the shape of your pattern. Prepare threads in different colors. Make sure the color of the thread you will use matches the color of the fabric. You may use pens in outlining the cuts from patterns or you could opt to just pin the patterns to the cloth, then proceed to cutting. As a beginner, you should first go with the basics. When you are already familiar and comfortable with the procedures, start applying your creative ideas and designs.

Dressmaking is a skill that can bring about cost savings, potential income, and added personal pleasure. To some people, making dresses can be a stress-relieving habit. To others, it can be bread and butter, a source of living.

Imagine yourself setting your own fashion label when making clothes. After mastering these fundamentals, you can continue making dresses until the activity comes naturally and easily on you. By the time you get accustomed and very familiar with the skill, you can start creating rare and challenging designs. Be a good, patient, and determined beginner.
