Learn to Sew Without Patterns

20


20 simbi per hour - Virtual OK

Frustrated with the endless, finicky reams of tissue paper? Find it impossible to pick up a pattern in the right size? Want to make something original, or reproduce something you've only seen pictures of?

Discover how to make clothing and projects without buying preexisting patterns. No sewing experience necessary, but the better your current skills the more complicated the projects you'll be able to conquer.

We will discuss your current skills, and go over what it is you'd like to be able to make.
I'll teach you about drafting your own pattern, how to copy an existing piece without destroying it, or how to recreate something from only reference photos.

Training & Qualifications


I have been using a sewing machine for more than 15 years, and I hated using a paper pattern from the first time I was given one in home economics. After that single class, I've taught myself how to make just about everything that's caught my attention Without an actual pattern for any of them.

Availability & Preferences


Weekday evenings, and some Wednesdays and Weekends with enough notice. Quick replies via Simbi mail during business hours.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

The local time bank is a good idea, but in practice is much more onsite-service focused. I don't have many needs that can be met there. This looks like a much better organized platform, too.
