Sewing Kit 101

Hi style dolls,

There is no question about it, fashion design is a hot and profitable industry. And  sewing is the bedrock of this mega industry.

So I get asked a lot, “What tools do I need to get started with sewing?

The truth is: You don’t need much.

  • Iron and ironing board
  • A notebook
  • Tape measure
  • Small pair of sharp scissors and Large pair of fabric scissors
  • Rulers (a straight ruler, a long one and a french curve)
  • Razor blade or seam ripper
  • Hand sewing needles
  • Tailor’s chalk or fabric marker
  • Threads in different colours to match your fabrics
  • Sewing machine

Check the video below to know why you need these items

Another question I get asked often is: “Can I start without a sewing machine?”

Of course you can! You can start sewing with just hand sewing needles. The downside is that your sewing will be a lot slower. But if you are patient and passionate about transforming designs into OOTDs, then you can definitely start with a hand needle and graduate to a sewing machine when you have saved up for it.

Got a question? Drop it in the comments below. I answer every question and will help you with clear, precise answers 🙂
