Before you chase a career in or a hobby of sewing, the first thing you need to do is to procure a home course in sewing and dressmaking. There are a lot of resources available in the market like books, kits and even interactive lectures which will allow you to watch lecture videos.

Once you have mastered these skills, the next thing to do in sewing home learning is to find a fit model. Doing this will allow you to apply the skills you have prior learned such as proper fitting procedures and techniques, adjustments, choosing the correct garment and fabric types and the like. It is ideal for you to try fitting and creating clothes for a variety of body types to further reinforce your skills.
Sewing home learning is an unremitting skill and it doesn’t stop once you have successfully created a dress or a garment. There are a lot of diverse garments to sew and a multitude of techniques to learn.
