Step 1: Getting together the bits and bobs
After I receive your order, I gather all the materials needed to start sewing your garment. This includes the fabrics, elastics and findings, as well as the pattern pieces for your size.
Step 2: Cutting the pattern
After arranging the pattern pieces on the fabric or leather I cut each piece out by hand. This takes lots of care and attention but theres something satisfying about how the blade cuts through leather!
Step 3: Sewing
Once everything has been prepared, it is time to stitch the garment together. I usually pin the pieces first as this gives me an accurate fit with the slippery fabrics. It can be a long process changing machines and using several different stitches.
Step 4: Packaging
After the garment is complete , I check for any loose threads before lovingly wrapping your garment.
