You know…I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for over 2 and a half years now! It kind of feels like I’ve always done it because I feel comfortable if you know what I mean? I guess that’s a good sign though 🙂
Anyway, I was looking over all of my blog posts and looking at the various how-tos and tutorials that I’ve written. They always seem pretty popular with you lovely lot and I thought how cool it would be to compile a top 10. A bit like Top of The Pops (oh boy that ages me!! Haha!). So without further ado lets’ get cracking as I count down to number one…And as you read you have to imagine that I’m reading this out loud in my best radio DJ voice lol!
A countdown Of My Top 10 How-Tos And Sewing Tutorials
Ok, pop fans…coming in at number 10 is how to make your own thread storage board. One of my earlier posts. You can make it as big or small as you like and it’s not too costly either.
A non-mover (lol) at number 9 is a post that deals with how to make tucks and box pleats. Just a bit of maths and some careful marking out is needed for these methods
Next, and up four places is… how to make your own folding cutting table with built-in storage. Again, great if you’re handy at DIY (or know someone that is) and can be done quite cheaply too.
Down three (hehe) at number 7 is how to use your overlocker/serger to create a rolled hem. Great for lightweight fabrics to get a pretty hem and you can also create a lettuce effect too.
Next up at number 6 is how to alter a skirt waist in 10 steps. Handy if you need to alter an RTW skirt as well
At the halfway point number 5 is how you can create your own wrap skirt with a drape detail from scratch and without a commercial pattern.
Coming in at number 4 is how to make a kaftan using a sarong. Great for those of you in the Southern hemisphere just heading into Summer.
At number 2 is one of my very popular tutorials about adapting sleeves and shoulders for those of you like me with square or forward rolling shoulders.
And finally…coming in at the top spot at number 1 is my most popular tutorial. It’s how to sew in a concealed zip using a standard zipper foot.
Have you put any of these tutorials into practice? I’d love you to tell me in comments how you got on. And if you haven’t, are there any you want to try?
As always thank you so much for dropping by my little corner of the internet and I’ll catch you in a week with a special collaboration that you’ll love. Bye!
