How to Make Clothes by Indian Clothing Stores

You may want to make clothes for a variety of purposes. Whether you’re involved in fashion design, have any clothes in mind that you’d like to create for yourself, or need to change clothing you already own, knowing how to sew a dress from scratch would be helpful.

Picking a Pattern

Step 1

Get a trend out of it. Using the measurements you took, create a pattern for your garment. For the required pattern design and construction, use a similar garment as a reference. You can find pattern suggestions in a variety of ways.

Vintage patterns (especially for dresses) can often be found in second hand stores and sewing shops, and there are several simple patterns available online.

Step 2

Place the pattern parts on the fabric that you’ve selected on a wide, flat surface. It will take some thought to figure out how to set out the pattern bits.

Fold the cloth in half, right sides up, selvedge to selvedge. The finished edges of the cloth that prevent it from unravelling are known as the selvedge. Folding it this way would make breaking the double pattern section much easier.

Step 3 –

Fold the pattern piece down the centre and pin the folded portion of the pattern on the folded edge of the cloth if you have big symmetrical pattern pieces that can be folded down the middle (shirt back, for example). This reduces cutting time and guarantees a precisely symmetrical cut fabric slice.

Place the pattern parts at a 90-degree angle to the folded edge to stitch a piece of fabric with no stretch.

Step 4 –

Some wrinkles on the clothing should be ironed out. You must ensure that the fabric is wrinkle-free; otherwise, if the wrinkles cause the fabric to come out of place, it will ruin your final product.

Step 5 –

Template bits should be pinned to the cloth. This will indicate where you should cut. Check to see that it’s all wrinkle-free and all the pattern bits and cloth are perfectly matched.

Step 6 –

The fabric should be cut according to the template. Ensure that all layers of cloth are sliced through.

Step 7 –

Remove the cloth sample fragments from the paper pattern. You’re now able to begin the sewing process.

Sewing Your Clothes

Step 1 –

Around the hem edges, pin the cloth bits together. Determine the edges to be sewn together and pin the two fabric pieces together at the seam edges, right sides facing each other. To avoid having to cut pins when you stitch a fabric, position them at a 90-degree angle from the tip.

Step 2 –

Sew the fabric parts together, one edge at a time, from one end to the other, until the garment is complete.

This will take some time, please be careful when working. Don’t panic if you make a mistake; your seam ripper can come in handy.

Step 3 –

Make proper use of your sewing machine. You must ensure that you have the appropriate needle and thread for the job. Various kinds of thread and needles perform well for various fabrics. Animal fibre fabrics, such as silk, linen, or alpaca, use different techniques than natural fibres like cotton or flax, or synthetic fibres like rayon or poly.

Make sure you understand what kind of fabric you’re working with and which needle and thread would fit well with it. Direct the fabric through the system with care. Do not drag or manoeuvre your project because the sewing machine is designed to do so automatically, and you risk clogging the machine or ruining your garment.

Step 4 –

Your garment’s edges should be hemmed. Make sure the garment has smooth, polished edges.

Fold the edge up to the ideal hem depth, the wrong side facing in, and press the fold together. Fold and click the squeezed edge one more time. Sew around the inside of the garment’s top folded edge of the hem.

Step 5 –

Put the final touches on it. Button, elastic, zippers, cheerful embroidery, and special stitches are all examples of this. The more experience you have designed and made your dresses, the more imaginative you can be with the finishing touches.
