Just a couple of quick questions and a poll for today…
I often get asked about how I grade my sewing patterns. I grade pretty much all of my patterns up, so I’ve become a bit of
a pro expert deft adept at this skill. I never really planned on posting any sewing tutorials on this site, although I do sometimes do some crafty/DIY tutorials as I do projects. My thoughts are that many other sewists have written (and youtubed) useful tutorials and I often just link their post when someone asks how I do things. However, I was thinking that perhaps I should show you how I do this. Is this something you would be interested in? The Curvy Sewing Collective is diligently working on our upcoming project which will be a one-stop site for tutorials such as this and I am planning on writing one about grading up vintage patterns when I get around to sewing one for myself (it seems that other quick projects get in there first in my sewing queue!). Would you like me to post tutorials like this over here? Or would you rather I just link to other tutorials? Do you have any questions or would you like further information about any techniques that I’ve used and would like to see me elaborate?
I use this blog as a venue to showcase things that I’ve made whilst interacting with the sewing community. My intention never was to teach others how to sew, but I would like to help any burgeoning sewists out there if I can. I have been sewing for nearly 30 years, but I don’t consider myself an expert. I always have been very good at learning skills and figuring things out on my own, but I know others sometimes need some help, so I’m willing to share things that I’ve learned. The most important thing, I think, is to know that there are many ways to do things and I don’t really think there is a wrong way if it works for you. Just my thoughts….. let me know what YOU think!
PS Tomorrow I am meeting up with a bunch of SoCal sewing bloggers in LA! I am not a SoCal girl, but I’m making the trip down there for the weekend to shop and hang out. I can’t wait!!! 🙂
