It starts with Sew!

I signed up for Fashion Sewing 101 at Fashion Maker Space . If you guys are confused where it is, it’s on the second floor, next to 7-11 at 258A South Bridge Road.

Very near to Chinatown MRT station.

Alright, why Fashion Sewing 101? Because I figured I should start from the very basics even though I have done cosplays and whatnot like woah. Those are like… hack and dash. It works cause it works but this time I want to learn properly.

So Fashion Sewing 101 it is!

I was early so I got to choose my own seat. I got a little pack of informative stuff of where to buy fabric and haberdashery plus a diagram of sewing machine parts plus a piece of fabric to practice on.

This was totally for a beginner but I did learn things! Such as tension and what the zig zag stuff means and how to get the curves in stitching you want etc.

On my right was also samples of the various workshops/classes they hold.

It’s a fairly spacious space and there was another class going on, on the other side too.

This is me “tracing” the lines of what to do. You can see me experimenting after the instructor (Isabelle) told us how to use the different settings and what each one is needed for different materials.

I was legitly like “AaAAaaAAHhh?” but quietly in my mind.

Because I could technically do embroidery with my machine or even do finer sewing with the machine I have at home?!

In any case, it was a pleasant introduction to sewing whether if you are truly a super beginner or someone who needs brushing up in sewing.

I want to go to Fashion Sewing 102 now… Ah…
