Sewing Tip of the Week

Here's another sewing tip that I wanted to share as I progress with my dress project. The one good thing about making your own clothes is that you can alterate what you need to give the pattern a more personal feel. With my dress I decided that I wanted to add a little length to it so here's what I did.

First what I did is pin my pattern to my fabric. I wanted to add an extra 2 inches to the bottom of the dress. So I measured 2 inches from the bottom of the pattern and making sure that I was always even with the pattern I pinned to create a line.

Once I was done pinning my extra 2 inches I got a line that looks like the bottom of the pattern.

Happy Sewing!
