How To Select The Right Sewing Pattern ( Video)

Thank you so much for supporting D.Gulley This week, I would like to share a simple, sewing tip with you entitled,” How To Select The Right Sewing Pattern.”

Currently, I teach sewing classes at Jo Ann’s Fabric store. In my beginning sewing classes, my students often ask me what are some good patterns or easy projects to make for beginner sewers. Over the years, I have found that it is best to start with a simple sewing project like a pillowcase or apron until you build up your sewing skills. Once you masted the basics, then you can move on to more advance projects.

Please check out this week’s sewing tip. Let me know what you think. Do you agree or disagree with my advice? I can’t wait to hear your feedback.
