How to start learning to cut and sew?
And we will begin with a straight classic skirt - the most common skirt, on the basis of which in the future we will learn to sew all other models of skirts. Oh, what a variety of them !! Eyes scatter !! And after the skirts will go shirts, dresses, pants and jackets, and a lot of all the various!
And I also want to tell you one very important thing: do not be afraid of anything! Do not be afraid to spoil the fabric, do not be afraid to experiment. This applies to absolutely everything - the choice of fabric, the choice of an unusual model. The worst thing that can happen is that you just get into waste for the price of damaged fabric. But the invaluable experience and skills that you will gain are worth a lot of money. Therefore - take a chance! I always do that. And, as a rule, I have success. What you want.
Initially, you are faced with the task of determining your size and choosing a fabric.
On a straight skirt, it is better to take cotton fabric with the addition of synthetics, so as not to crease when worn. It is better not to start with thick warm woolen fabrics, since certain experience is needed to work with them. Before buying, you need to check the fabric for defects.
Now we define a fractional thread. It runs parallel to the edge, it is durable, does not stretch, holds the shape.
All products will be cut by a common thread, or at least with knowledge of where it is located. This is necessary so that the skirt does not become deformed after washing. Although it often happens that the thing "sit down" after washing, but even an experienced person is not immune from this.
So, take any fabric that you like (from which you will sew your first skirt tomorrow!) And start to iron it well with steam, and even better to wash it first, and then iron it.
This process is called decoding. As well as cutting out on a share thread, it is necessary in order to protect your future product from the fact that it will sit down after washing. There are such fabrics (mostly natural) that will sit down as many times as you wash them.
But it is necessary to iron carefully, observing the temperature regime for each type of fabric.
When you have everything ready, you can begin to learn the basics of building a straight classic skirt.
I hope that this small preface will help you to believe in yourself and make you sew for yourself, beloved!

How to study?
If you decide to start learning, then you have several options:
- Courses cutting and sewing. This option is the most effective, because experienced teachers will be able to not only tell you, but also clearly demonstrate all the features of such classes as sewing. They will correct your mistakes and answer all your questions. The only disadvantage of this method is cash costs. By the way, instead of courses you can find a tailor who will conduct classes individually.
- The second method is the use of teaching literature. Some manuals are so detailed and have so many clear and understandable illustrations that the emergence of questions is simply impossible. In addition, some allowances are presented ready-made patterns that even beginners can use.
- The third way is online training. Find a dedicated website with tutorials, detailed videos and descriptions of all processes.
What is required for training?
To sew, you need to prepare everything you need. Here's what you need:
- Even if you are not going to sew by hand, remember that some items can only be processed this way. Therefore, by all means get a set of tailors' needles of different lengths, thicknesses and shapes.
- It is more convenient and fastest to sew on a typewriter, so be sure to purchase this device. It is better to buy a manual machine that is not very difficult to handle, but it should have all the necessary functions. You can consult with the seller.
- Curved handles. They are most convenient to cut complex elements.
- Devices for measuring: a measuring tape, a ruler (it is best to choose transparent, it is much more convenient to use it).
- Tracing paper. It will be used to transfer the created patterns directly to the materials. Also, a beginner can be useful copy paper.
- Be sure to buy sewing threads. And remember that the quality of the ready-made clothes will depend on their quality.
- For the temporary fastening of individual elements, safety pins may be required.
- Special tailor's felt-tip pens, pencils and crayons.
- To create patterns you need special drawing paper with markings.
- It is worth buying furniture in advance.
- For convenience, you can prepare a needle pad.
- You can use a thimble to protect your fingers.
In sewing and cutting there is a mass of terms unknown to ordinary people. So your first step towards mastering the basics should be the study of such terms. Try to remember everything. At first it will not be easy, so for convenience and quick memorization, write all the concepts on a piece of paper and hang it in front of your workplace.
Taking measurements is a very important part of preparing for tailoring. If the measurements are taken incorrectly, the finished thing simply will not work. So remember a few basic rules:
- Take off all your clothes, you should stay only in underwear. But if you sew a piece of clothing, then you do not need to shoot anything.
- Measurements of the chest and hips should be made on the most convex places of these parts of the body. But you need to measure the waist in its narrowest zone. Measuring tape should fit snugly to the body, but not tighten it.
- If you sew clothes yourself, it is better to ask someone to help you take measurements, so that the measuring tape is located exactly where you need it.
- Do not pull in the stomach while taking measurements. Just relax.
Now it is worth learning to cut. Today it is not as difficult as it was literally ten to twenty years ago. There are many fashion magazines with ready-made patterns. It is enough just to correct them a bit, taking into account the peculiarities of your figure, and then proceed to the transfer. In addition, there are special computer programs that allow you to make a pattern in minutes.
It will be enough for you to simply enter your parameters and transfer the finished drawing to paper in an enlarged (real) scale. Also do not forget about seam allowances, but they are indicated almost everywhere. In addition, take into account and increase the freedom to fit, the thing should not hinder movement. When the pattern is fully prepared, you can cut it.
Transferring patterns to fabric
Before transferring the pattern, smooth the fabric well, as even a small fold can interfere and eventually turn into a defect in the finished thing. Now attach the separate parts of the pattern to the fabric with pins or threads and needles. Attach the pattern to the seamy side, but consider the location of parts. Now gently circle the pattern, using chalk for a dark cloth or a pencil for a light one.
Assembly of parts
Carefully cut all finished fabric parts. Connect them and fasten with simple hint stitches. Now, by all means, do a fitting, and then proceed to the most important stage.
Prepare a sewing machine and start sewing. Firmly but gently hold and move the fabric with your hands so that all the lines are smooth.
Some useful tips:
- If you begin to sew from scratch, then do not strive to sew something complicated right away. Start with simple models, and then move on to more complex ones.
- To all the lines were perfectly smooth, practice. Sit at the typewriter and start flashing unnecessary cuts of fabric. When the stitches stop "wag", you can start sewing.
- It is best to study each sewing operation separately and thoroughly. This will avoid mistakes and missteps.
- It is worth finding out and studying the most common mistakes to avoid them.
Sewing from scratch
In any case, a beginner can not do without first lessons. For those who want to learn how to sew, you need to separate two concepts:
- learn to sew and cut,
- be able to sew on a sewing machine.
Almost everyone can master a sewing machine if there is desire to master the technique initial sewing skill. In this case, systematic repetition is important to get a hand.
Another thing is to sew things and for this it is necessary to master the basics of cutting and sewing. At the very beginning, you should determine the direction in the needlework:
- making clothes
- tailoring of soft toys for children or bags
- work with home textiles.
Any one of them is related to a certain sewing technique, the acquisition of special sets of tools, mastering the technique of sewing. From this will also depend on the modification of the sewing machine.
To master any trends in the art of sewing To get started, you need a minimum set of tools, without which you can’t start sewing a newbie:
- tailors' scissors, able to cut different types of fabrics,
- an accessory for correcting the wrong seams, it will unpick the fabric without damage to the products,
- tape measure,
- chalk for patterns or remnants,
- pins and thread.
It is also necessary to acquire a sewing machine and begin to master the device and work with it.
Mastering a sewing machine
Learning to sew on a sewing machine is easy. Lessons will not take much time and effort. Skilled masters advise to take for employment not fabric, but paper. It is more rigid and will not be draped in line. The best option is the usual sheets in the cell from a notebook. Threads for the first lesson will not be needed. Paper should be placed under the folder. and you can start scribbling. It is necessary to learn how to make smooth seams, especially with turns. The needles in a typewriter after paper immediately become unusable and will not work for further work. Needle throwing is not worth it, because it can be used to work with flaps.
To make it easier to master the technique of the seam, no need to put pressure on the typewriter pedal. This will facilitate the control process and the flatness of the stitch. It is necessary to learn how to regulate the device. Both threads - upper and lower should be stretched equally, evenly and tightly. This will allow them not to tear, but to lie down in a line evenly, without tightening the fabric. If the threads are weakly strained, they will be tangled, torn, and the seam will turn out with an obvious defect.
It is necessary to achieve straight, even and marking seams. After each seam you should make bartacks to avoid their divergence. Training should begin with the development of simple seams and then move on to more difficult finishing seams.
Before you sit down at the typewriter, you should carefully read the instructions for working with it. It is necessary to understand the settings, to be able to thread the needle.
First sewing lessons
Experienced seamstresses advise beginners in sewing business to begin with sewing textile items:
- pillow covers:
- bed for a child
- pot holders
If such items in the home are not needed, then you can try to sew a skirt straight cut. Magazines are being sold, with specially designed models for beginners. Basically there are offered basic things that are under the force of beginner seamstresses. Such products can be sewn in 1 evening. The cut out parts are folded together with pins and then sewn with a basting stitch manually. If everything came after fitting, then they should be sewn with a typewriter.
After selecting a model, you need to buy fabric for it. The most suitable material for the first works - cotton of dense structure. It will be easier to cut and handle sewing machine. The fabric is inexpensive, so if you spoil it, then such a result will not entail large losses. If the first thing turned out to be successful, then you can switch to another type of product or sew a more complex skirt or clothes for your child. Skills of mastery come with time and only with experience can sew complicated thingsFor example, an evening dress.
The main mistakes for beginners
Novice seamstresses often make mistakes, but they can always be corrected and always strive for it.
In any needlework, you can not hurry and it is very important that haste does not grow into a habit. It is found not only among beginners, but also among experienced craftsmen.
It is impossible to scribble without fitting, since after that it is more difficult to make the necessary changes. A line without fitting is acceptable if patterns are used for which clothes were previously sewn, and the figure has not changed in volumes.
Very often when sewing clothes used journal patterns. However, individual parameters do not always coincide with them. As a result, the product will not fit perfectly on the figure. It is necessary to take into account their parameters and adjust them to the basis of the pattern.
To get the desired result requires experience and a desire to learn. It is advisable to buy special literature, study it and consult with masters with experience. Proper mistakes will be expensive because the fabric can be damaged.
You can not buy fabric for sewing products close to. If suddenly a newcomer miscalculated, spoiled, then without a stock of material it is unlikely to get something fixed. Before opening the fabric, you need to iron it. Wet processing of the material will give a natural shrinkage, after which you can draw on it.
Do not stop halfway. Very often, newcomers begin to actively learn to sew, and without completing the work, they quit, especially if something goes wrong. After that, forcing yourself to take on the unfinished thing is difficult. It is necessary to persevere and continue, otherwise learning to sew will not work.
Learning to sew and cut can be on the courses of cutting and sewing
If you have patience and diligence, then you can learn to sew and cut yourself. However, the generally accepted practice still provides vocational training for any specialty, including at the amateur level, whether it is driving a car or the ability to sew and cut.
A qualified specialist can competently and briefly explain all the features of the technology of sewing and cutting clothes, teach techniques of working on a sewing machine, learn to understand modern fabrics and materials, and much more.
Paid courses of cutting and tailoring, only conditionally paid. In fact, training gives you the opportunity to return the money spent, saving on tailoring for yourself and your loved ones after training. In addition, if you are a capable and careful student, this knowledge can be made a source of additional income.
However, training courses will need to spend a lot of time, including money. And this training may not always be effective, since any theoretical knowledge should be immediately reinforced by practice. Courses in which you only have to write theory will not do any good. The best warrant of training courses should include practical tailoring of the product according to your standards in the premises of the classroom and at home, with the consolidation of theoretical material into practice.
Sewing machine for beginners to learn to sew
Practically any clothes can be sewn on an old Podolsk-type sewing machine. Especially such a sewing machine is suitable for beginners, those who are just learning the basics of sewing art at school in the classroom. This machine is very reliable, it is almost impossible to break it, and most importantly not with it you can sew any fabric, including coarse denim and leather. Such a machine does only one operation - a straight line, but if you need a zigzag line, you can use a sewing machine like Chaika. Even if you do not have such a machine, you can buy it on an ad quite inexpensive.
But if you decide to learn how to sew "seriously and for a long time," then you certainly need to purchase a modern sewing machine, taking into account your financial capabilities.

For a novice seamstress, it is enough for an economy class machine of any company, approximately, such as in this photo.

If you are going to buy a sewing machine and do not know which model and firm to choose, the site has a number of articles on this topic, for example, this one is an Inexpensive sewing machine: "Pros and cons."
Overlock for beginners
Часто случается так, что собираясь научиться шить, сразу покупают дорогую швейную машинку, массу швейных принадлежностей и даже оверлок. А после выясняется, что поторопились, поскольку и времени нет, и главное, желания. Большую "охоту" научиться шить и кроить легко отбивает первая неудавшаяся вещь. Therefore, do not rush to acquire overlock until you are sure that you really need it. At first, you can do with a "zigzag" or a special foot that can imitate a covering stitch.
If you sew a lot and constantly, the overlock will allow you to professionally process the seams and facilitate your work. Modern household overlocks, as a rule, perform a four-strand obmetochny seam and differ little from each other in their technical characteristics, so if you do not have enough money, then you can buy an overlock inexpensive model from Singer, Juki, Elna, etc.
You can buy even b y overlock class 51. Its price is not more than 3 thousand rubles, however, an obmetochny seam can be not only three-filament, but also double-fillet. On the other hand, such an overlock is able to sweep over thick drape, denim fabrics and may be useful to you later, even when you have a modern 4-thread overlock.
Learning to sew do it yourself is impossible without special sewing tools and accessories. Of course, not all of them will be needed right away, but many of them must be in your arsenal.
It is very convenient to use special tailors. scissors, in which one ring is larger than the other, and the blades are inclined relative to the handle. With stationery scissors with flat blades, you cannot cut the corners of the fabric. When processing the pocket "leaflet" smoothly and precisely notches can be made only with such scissors. Tailors often use zigzag scissors to cut thick drape fabrics. Zigzag cut edges do not require overlock processing of the edge and will facilitate the process of sewing the product.
Sewing needles for handicrafts. You will also need them for work, as sweeping parts and other operations are done only manually. Different types of hand needles are used and selected depending on the work performed. So, needles with a rounded end are used for hand-seam joints of knitted fabrics. Such a needle gently pushes the loop and slips between them, without breaking the thread.
Short sewing needles with a round eyelet are designed for small stitches on thick fabric or stitches lining.
Wedge-shaped needles (triangle cross-section) are used to work on the skin.
Tailor's pins necessary for splitting parts in the process of sewing and facilitate the work during fitting clothes. Tailor pins come in different lengths, thicknesses and, depending on this, are used to perform a particular operation.
Thimble protects the middle finger tip from needle pricking while sewing by hand. Pick a thimble to fit exactly. It should be worn freely on the finger, not squeezing it, but it does not slide off during operation. Learn to use it by pushing the needle with the side rather than the bottom. The habit of working with a thimble is developed fairly quickly, it is enough to put it on and wear it for a whole day without removing it when doing any other household work.
Needle threader - This is a loop of very thin wire, fixed in a flat plate. It is used to thread the thread through the eye of the needle. With the help of a yarn picker, you can take out the remnants of the thread on the inside of the product or eliminate the tightening of the thread that appeared on the fabric.
