If you’re new to sewing or to Did You Make That, I thought I’d do a little round-up of my most popular and useful blog posts! Hopefully, these could help you, too.
Viscose is one of the most wearable fabrics to sew with and this blog post is my number one most popular of all time. Clearly, we all love viscose. Brew yourself a cup of tea and take the time to read the 75+ comments as there’s a wealth of reader information and tips.
Don’t forget to check out the full Fabric Focus series here.
It turns out people love a free downloadable map! Here you can find my guide to fabric shopping on Walthamstow market, along with a map to guide you. Make a day of it!
This was a blog post about a dress I sewed for a friend from satin. It wasn’t an entirely successful make, but the readers’ comments are a mine of knowledge. Clearly, other people have had the same challenges. Maybe I need to write a Fabric Focus!
People come back time and again for this tutorial. My press cloth needs replacing now so you can guesstimate that a silk organza press cloth shall last you two years on average. This really is an essential piece of kit.
To any pattern designers out there, I’m promising you there’s a gap in the market – if you’re looking for new customers, put a tie pattern out there! This blog post gets SO many hits. My tie was based on the now defunct Colette Patterns tie blog post. The only other kit I’m aware of is from Sew Over It. Gap. In. Market. Free. Tutorial. I’m telling ya – perfect for Christmas!
I hope this round-up helped and inspired. What do you most often search for in sewing when you hit Google?
