Lesson 9 – How to Use Sewing Patterns

Once you know how to use pattern pieces, you can make anything… well, anything that comes with a pattern! Head on over to the pattern section at your local craft store and you will find thousands and thousands of options for sewing together your own clothes, home accessories, and more! I also recommend visiting McCalls Patterns online, as they have several different lines of sewing patterns that are constantly being updated for the latest looks.

In this course you will learn:

  • How to read sewing patterns:
    • Notches
    • Darts
    • Slits
    • The Grain
    • The fold
  • Marking your sewing patterns
  •  Techniques:
    • Pinning pattern down
    • Cutting the fabric
    • Transferring the markings.
