How to Make Your Own Clothes

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

With some practice, patience, and some sewing know-how, you’ll be on your way to making your own clothing before you know it. If you have never attempted to make your own clothes before, or if you have little or no sewing skills, finding some good reference materials is a great place to start. Head to your local library, fabric or craft store, or bookstore and look for a how-to book on sewing. Gather Notions, Materials, and Equipment.

Should You Learn To Sew?

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

Learning to sew takes time and equipment. A super short history of sewing. Many seamstresses lived on the charity of family and friends in addition to their pay. In many parts of the US, people learned to sew as part of their life skills – from parents or family or schools. Although Mom didn’t sew much (she did mend), she made sure I took Home Ec in high school. Sewing today has dropped out of main stream life.
