Sew Can You! sewing lessons by Lisha Charmane

What do you enjoy about clothing? The colors? The design? The fit?

What is the most difficult part about finding clothing that falls into all three of these categories? Right, the fit. Every human being has a body shape that is just a little bit different from the person next to you. Ready-to-wear clothing manufacturers use standards or "averages" to design and produce clothing that fits the "average" person. What happens when you aren't an "average" size? Your clothing might be well designed and sport the latest in color and fabric, but it just doesn't look good on you. How do you get around that? By learning how to sew!

Sewing your own garments is really not as difficult as it may sound. For only $50/hr I can help you with learn the very basic elements of fabric choice, how to decipher a pattern envelope and instructions inside, getting to know your sewing machine and how to begin expanding your wardrobe by sewing your own clothing, or clothing for your family.

Once you finish my course, you will be able to fit patterns to your body, choose the correct size, and stitch together garments that you like and that fit you well.

So what are you waiting for? Let's get started now, because once you begin, you won't be able to stop! :-)
