Hello Everyone, I am a new stitcher here. At school I vaguely remember doing a little Cross Stitch, sewing a basic rectangle shape lined bag with a zip, and sewing two pieces of fabric together using a sewing machine. But that seems such a long time ago now! I am feeling inspired from watching The Great British Sewing Bee on TV, and would love to start sewing and working from patterns. I was just wondering, where should I start? What project did you start sewing with? What would you recommend I start with? I consider myself to be a complete newbie to sewing, and would love to start from the basics with hand sewing, what do you think I should try making? And can I try making anything without a pattern? Where to begin? Any help and advice you can offer would be very greatly appreciated! Many Thanks,
Hello, I'm doing the great brittish sewing bee drape top from issue 60 (june 2014) sew H&S. I've completed step 7 but I have got stuck. It says to fold the necktie over to the wrong side so it covers the gathers you have made and then sew it up. which I did, but my stitches show all along the tie and now all along the front. The diagram says to do that but the pictures of the finished item don't show stitching an looks a lot neater. Does anyone know how to stitch it up so the stitches can't be seen? The only way I could think of would be to do it inside out, but there is no way of turning the right way around with the front already attached. Thanks asparticus
