Sewing Skill Level Guide

AS IN, BRAND NEW 

As in, brand new to the sewing world.  Welcome!

 

 

BEGINNER  
You’ve made simple things like gathered skirts, tote bags & pillow cases in woven fabrics. You’re starting to get comfortable with your sewing machine or simply have taken our Bootcamp: Intro to Sewing or Basics of the Basics 


CONFIDENT BEGINNER 

You’ve made a few garments in woven fabric following a sewing pattern.   Maybe projects that didn’t have too many pieces and seams. You’re still a bit challenged with set-in sleeves, neckbands, cuffs, etc.

 

 

INTERMEDIATE  
Beginner & confident beginner patterns are easy to sew for you. You sometimes can hack patterns to follow your heart. 

You’ve been successful inserting sleeves, zippers (even invisible), pockets and interfacing but still have to read instructions thoroughly.

 

ADVANCED  
You can say: “I can sew this with my eyes closed!” You don’t have a problem putting together projects with small pieces.  There are patterns that you need not to read through anymore.  You are very independent but still like a great challenge.
