Sewing can be an interesting and profitable pastime when each part is done perfectly. Without numerous alterations and a constant struggle with unnecessary rippings. This is all possible only when each step of the sewing construction is properly understood. The garment can then be made without a waste of time or effort.

Your first sewing project shouldn't be too ambitious. If you use a complicated pattern and cut the first project from the most difficult fabric then you will be presented with many problems that will be discouraging. There are some basic things that should be mastered before a more difficult pattern and challenging fabric project are attempted.

The first dress project should ideally be a sleeveless creation. Doing it in this way will hopefully avoid unnecessary sleeve fitting difficulties.

Use a pattern with only a few sections. Look on the back of the pattern envelope to determine the number of sections of a particular pattern. To prevent any additional problems pick a pattern that is for a plain dress that is without any pleats or tucks or sheering or pointy sections. Each of these will just present additional challenges that should progressively be tackled after the first dress project was successfully made.

The different challenges that are encountered in sewing a garment make it really interesting. Each new project contains a new set of interesting challenges that will naturally and easily be resolved if the basic principles of sewing are followed and understood. Sewing is really only difficult and frustrating when the basic fundamentals are not learned, practiced and mastered.

An excellent easy beginner's print material to start off with, is a firmly woven type of fabric. There are quit a few very nice fabrics in small check or figure prints that will be ideally suited for the beginner to start off with. A good thing is that the small check and figure prints normally will hide a lot of errors that are made in sewing.

So where to start? First a suitable pattern should be picked. The pattern instructions should then be carefully studied. If an experienced or knowledgeable shop assistant or friend is available, then they should be asked for advice on which kind of fabric to use with the pattern. Many sewing disasters can be directly linked to the wrong choice of fabric for the pattern that was picked.

With the first sewing project don't try to be original and creative and then feel awkward in the dress afterwards. Rather use the first dress project to make a simple dress in a current popular fashion style. If the dress is made from the correct fabric for the pattern and season, then you will not feel self-conscious. You will have a lovely dress that is just right and that is made to fit you beautifully.

Your sewing project will be a huge success and you will be motivated to tackle your next sewing project and your first dress will be a pleasure to wear.

All of the best,

Warmest Regards,
