This video will help you understand how to read a sewing pattern envelope! There are so many great reasons to sew your own clothes!
I will warn you, though. It’s long and I talk a lot. But I promise it’s a good one! So much information and so far the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and amazing! Thank you to everyone who has watched the video and sent me comments and emails. As a teacher it’s always so rewarding when you provide your students with nuggets of information that make them have light bulb moments! I hope you’ll experience the same thing when you watch this super in-depth video tutorial where I walk you through how to read a sewing pattern envelope for the Butterick 6214 pattern.
You’ll notice that for this B6214 sew along I’ve chosen a rayon challis fabric. This is also what I recommend for you to use if this is your first go at this pattern. Rayon challis is breezy and has great drape. It is one of my favorite fabrics to use for tops, dresses and even skirts.
Also a quick note that we got the Clip & Slide measuring tapes back in stock right now! It’s so hard to keep these in stock. Every time I post about them we sell out so this is your chance to grab a couple while you can. They are a must have sewing tool for me when making clothes. Grab your Clip & Slide measuring tape here.
