Using paper patterns, from a standing start

How fantastic! First attempt at using a paper pattern. Love the top stitching. It really adds a professional finish.

As you know, on March 15 WizardMakes opened its pop-up sewing group in the Uniting Church in Whaley Bridge, giving local sewers the chance to come along and spend two and a half hours cutting, pressing, stitching and chatting. There has been a wide variety of projects undertaken and completed during that time with items from Roman blinds to dog beds to children’s clothing and everything in between being made. It has been amazing to see.

Some of our members had never used a paper pattern before and were keen to use these sessions to have a go, knowing that Debs would be there to guide them through the process.

One lady has already completed a kimono style jacket for herself and is now working on pyjama bottoms for her daughters, whilst another has made dresses and leggings for her daughter and a variety of garments for herself. We were blown away by their enthusiasm and determination. Well done ladies!

Daughters’ request. Mum’s next task. Pyjama bottoms, or are they summer shorts?
