Easy Sewing Projects For Beginners So you've got to grips with your sewing machine, and you're itching to make something. Which sewing patterns are easy enough for beginners? I've gathered together a few suggestions for things you might want to try, but first a few tips for choosing an easy project. I'm a big advocate of diving into sewing fearlessly, but for your very first project you might want to ease yourself in gently: * While you're still making friends with your sewing machine, it's advisable to choose a project with simple straight lines. * Zippers and buttonholes are a little tricky at first, so go for a project that doesn't need a fastening, and save the fun for another day! * When buying fabric, a medium-weight cotton would be good for a first project as it lies flat, presses well and won't slide all over your machine. * Patterned fabric not only looks pretty but can hide dodgy stitching! * You might also want to consider whether you can see yourself making up the same pattern a few times. UPDATE!
Free Patterns - Your Style Rocks Design by rma / Pattern by Your Style Rocks! This is the pattern for the 1950s inspired dress that rma designed for our "Past Perfect" contest.

We made our own embellishment for the top but of course you can use something off-the-shelf as well. Please consult our size comparison table, our table of body measurements and the "Patterns" section of our FAQs before you download and print a pattern.
