Sewing Doll Clothes 101 pt 1

This week we are starting a new series on the channel/blog. I have actually wanted to do a sewing series since before I started the YouTube channel but I just never got around to it.

I know I have been absent from here for a while, the last several months have been very stressful. I am hoping the stuff that was causing the stress is starting to be fixed so I can devote some time to getting back on track with the things I love to do, this channel and blog is definitely a part of what I love to do.

For those of you that love the polymer clay foods, don't worry there are plenty more of those in the future. I just still need a break from the clay for a while. And sewing is something I have been doing for most of my life. It really makes me feel good to sew things so I want to share that love with some of you that want to learn also.

I actually started sewing before I was old enough to go to school. My let me hand sew from before I can remember as long as either she or one of my grandma's was there to supervise. I started sewing on a sewing machine when I was around 8 or 9 and I have been sewing ever since.

There was a time that I sewed pretty much everything I wore. Then I had kids and sewed for them. If it can be made of fabric I have probably sewn it at least once over the years and there have been a lot of years in the time since I first sat down at a sewing machine.

So back to this series. My idea for this series is to make sure that even a total novice at sewing can follow along. Hopefully, those of you that have been sewing for a while will pick up a few tricks along the way too.

I decided to start the series out by explaining the pattern envelope and the information that is on the outside of it. I also touched a bit on fabric types and some of the tools you will need to be able to follow along with the tutorial.

Simplicity 8042

To follow along you can either use the same patterns I do or pick one (or a few) that are similar. I hope to be able to explain the steps so that you can use them for any pattern you pick up.
