Today I am so excited to introduce to you a project that my best friend, Leanne, and I have been working tirelessly on for the past year! We’ve been sharing sneak peeks of it for months, and today we’re thrilled to finally announce the launch of The Modern Girl’s Guide to Sewing!
Leanne and I have both been creating sewing tutorials on our blogs for years, and we get constant comments and emails from our readers telling us they wish they could sew, or wondering how to learn the basics of sewing. Well, we’ve come up with the perfect solution!
The Modern Girl’s Guide to Sewing is a two-part video series with a Beginner’s Course that teaches the basics of your sewing machine, how to sew a straight line, how to hem, and more. And at the end of the course we teach you how to create a custom A-line skirt, like you can see below.
And the Intermediate Series teaches more advanced skills like darts, zippers, sleeves, necklines, and more. And then we’ll use all those skills to make a custom shift dress, like you can see below.
These courses will give you the perfect foundation of knowledge and skills so you can sew right along with us as we work to create the world’s best handmade wardrobes!
Check out our promo video below to learn all about The Modern Girl’s Guide to Sewing!
