I love sharing some of the things I’ve learned in my years of sewing. I’ve done a LOT of it by trial and error, and I have made just about every mistake out there. So I want to save you some of that error by teaching you some of the things I’ve learned along the way for making your sewing polished.

9 important ways to make your sewing polished so you can create projects you're proud of inside and out.

If you know some of the basics but want:

  • cleaner finishes that look amazing
  • crisper hems all around
  • and linings that don’t pull

then keep going–I’m sharing them all with you starting on the next page.

 

The tips and tricks I’m about to share with you aren’t hard, many of them are common sense or things you do wrong because you just don’t know any better. But my goal today is to help you know what to do better to make your sewing polished and professional. Do these things and when you look back at your sewing projects you’ll feel a sense of pride–you made that!

      Thanks Shelly! I hadn’t really thought about it until I started noticing RTW garments that had both in one bodice…that got me researching.

    TIP
    Make a taylor ham from scraps of fabric. Create a roll out of a sturdy fabric that will reflect the heat(I used some old curtains). The size of your ham is determined by how many fabric scraps you have. You need loads for a decent size.
    Take all those scraps of fabric that are too small to use and stuff the roll as tight as you can.
    This will create a cheap taylor ham and from stuff you may have in your cupboard.
    Simples.
