6. A Simple Linen Summer Dress Tutorial
I need to know how much linen I will need to make a set of queen size and a set of king size sheets, with pillowcases, standard and king. Any suggestions for sewing them would also be helpful. Thanks
Can you look up a standard catalog and see what the measurements are? Ask a friend to measure theirs?
I would love to see a tutorial on making children’s clothes specifically romper, summer shirt with sleeves, shorts, anything really. I have been making my kids clothes with the linen and we LOVE it.
Go to the web site and go through past articles. It’s in there a couple years back.
I would also like to see “Rectangular Construction” method tutorials and guidelines.
Given the number of people here who are either “plus-size” or otherwise don’t match your default sizing, a tutorial on pattern-less methods such as “Rectangular Construction” would be useful. Many traditional and historical garments were made using only the wearer’s measurements, not pre-designed pattern pieces. For those who enjoy doing embroidery, decorative stitching along seam lines adds a lovely touch to such garments, too.
I would love a tutorial on how to lay out and sew a garment on the bias.
