Today in the modern world, we can see many youngsters like fashion and to dress according to the current trends. Store clothes day after day, sell a wide range of clothing to visitors who do not mind the prices of clothing as long as they it is a stylish dress and more elegant. This led to rising prices of clothing apparel. So it’s no wonder that so many people who want to become tailors or fashion designers to increase their income and also they can dress according to their suit.
Sewing Learning Process can be divided into two cases: sewing fabric and cut fabric. Sewing cloth is a simple thing. The first step to become a seamstress was sewing machine to sew pieces of fabric cut into a piece of clothing. If you have absolutely no experience using a sewing machine, at first you will find it difficult, but eventually you will be skilled to use it. When you started get used, you can see the neatness of your stitches before and after a few months learning to use a sewing machine. Neatness stitches also depends on the type of a sewing machine, normal sewing machines or industry sewing machine (High Speed sewing machines). If you just started learning sewing, you can use the normal sewing machines that is sold for USD150 – USD300. But if you’re a seamstress to sew a piece of clothing every day, it is best to use high-speed sewing machines which are priced in the range of USD450 – USD700.
The next step to learn sewing is taking measurements to cut shirts, so that that garment are comfortable in accordance with user requirements. To take a person’s body shape you need to know the basics of human body. Human body shape can be divided into many categories such as standard shape, body height, wide hips, large breasts, body bent and more. Currently I am also preparing a video tutorial guide to take measurements such as:
1. Neck Measurement
2. Bust Measurement
3. Waist Measurement
4. Hips Measurement
5. Waist Height Measurement
6. Shoulder Measurement
and etc… Video tutorial may be completed in a month’s time, it’s because I have limited time and only can spend on weekends for matters of the Internet and online.
Apart from sewing and take measurements, things like sewing equipment and materials should also be studied. Basic sewing tools and materials you need to know are the tape measure, ruler angles, length 1 meter wooden ruler, gauge noch, scissors, ripper (hatchery), tailors chalk or wax, pencils, markers, carbon paper, tracing paper, tracing wheels, needles , thread, cutting tables and more.
Hopefully this short article will give some guidance to those who want to learn sewing. My advice, it is best to begin with planning and preparation so that the presentation and implementation satisfies all parties. In the world of sewing, there is nothing that can be taken as SIMPLE, it requires diligence because the clothes will be used later showing a wearer’s personality.
