Basic Sewing Tutorial 1 by Reine-Haru Basic Sewing Tutorial 1 by Reine-Haru
I've had recent requests for a tutorial on basic pleating and gathering, so here you go :) If anyone would like a tutorial on anything else (corset making, bone tipping, etc.) just let me know and I'd be happy to make one!

A full tutorial probably won't be necessary for this one but . . .

To add a rectangular piece of fabric to a jacket to make it look like a duster coat, how does one attatch it so that the hanging down edge still appears rectangular and looks even?

Well, you can attach it with a basic seam, press it open, and then hem the edges. Or you could double cross-stitch it on, then hem. Does that help?

Hehe, I have a short day of school tomorrow, so I'll see if I can't make another tutorial on something^^ As for corset, I think I'll make a Victorian tutorial first since that's the next kind of corset I'll be making.

I'm thinking about making a tutorial for easy faerie skirts too...

that would be great too. SPecially since I'll soon need to get cracking on my Daughters Ice Fairy Costume...she's mad enough that she can't wear it saturday. I need to take pics of the fabrics I'll be using it it.

Faerie skirts are surprisingly easy and fun to make. I make all of mine by making a short base out of opaque material, then doing the rest out of draped layers of organza. I usually burn holes in the organza first with an iron wrapped in aluminum foil (can get messy). Then I shred all the ends with a bread knife on carpet before decorating the skirt with silk leaves/flowers, etc.

I'm using lots of silvers, blues and whites in her outfit...trying to actually design her bodice right now...when I'm sitting at the bus stop waiting for the school bus.

OMG.
This kind of tutorial is exactly what I need if I ever want to sew without getting impatient and stabbing myself in the hand with a needle.

And I second the corset~

Alrighty, I'll get a corset tutorial together in the next month, though I'll warn you, they're quite hard to make if you haven't been sewing a lot.

Nice. This ought to be useful for some people. Tutorials for the basics can be hard to find, which sucks for people who are learning without anyone to teach them.

Yeah, I remember when I was first learning to knife pleat it took me forever to find a good tutorial.
