The day I took up sewing was the day I realised just how little I knew about it. Sure, I can thread a sewing machine quick enough and can manage a straight stitch straight enough – mandatory skills for someone whose grandmother sewed dresses for breakfast – but that’s about it. Lucky for me ,then, that I decided to follow into my grandma’s footsteps at a time when (almost) everything and anything is ‘google-able’. Diamonds maybe a girl’s best friend but to a girl whose passions lie in silks and cottons, sewing tutorials are just as precious.
This section is all about tutorials, from the simple task of attaching zippers to your skirts to the mind-boggling mystery of attaching linings to your dresses. Each tutorial is flooded with photos, especially helpful to those who are more visually inclined (like me!)
And so without much ado, here are my tutorials in pictures. Enjoy!
