I swear, for those of you who are Big Up Top, once you learn how to do this, you will never go back. A whole new world of sewing will open before you. Let me recommend a few books that I feel are easy to understand and give great information about fit and sewing for yourself.

These are some books I own and consult on a regular basis:. Hopefully I have given you a few great pointers for ways to perfect your Selfish Sewing. I definitely feel that sewing for oneself is a process learned over time, not a single leap into couture-sewing for most to be sure.

But it can be really rewarding to start to see the hard work pay off. It all happens with baby steps. And If you already do these things or have other suggestions that you feel strongly about , please suggest!! Great tips, thank you so much for sharing! One of my goals for the summer is to sew a dress for myself, so hopefully this will help me get a well fitted dress out of the adventure!

Now when I do it I feel like a hack, you know? It takes practice, which is even more of a plug for selfish sewing! Also, a well-drafted pattern goes a long way. I know that when I buy things to fit my hips they are far too tight in the waist and if they fit my waist they are far too loose in the hips. I imagine the same is true when buying clothing patterns.

Thanks for the post! I like your idea of tracing first, then making a muslin demo. On to making those patterns my own.. Thanks for taking the time to break it all down. Your description of learning to sew cracked me up. Thanks so much for all of this info. And now have picked it up again. Great tips, Rae — thanks for spelling it out for us!

Thanks for all the helpful info! I have been so reluctant to sew clothes for myself because of these problems you have talked about. Clothes in the store often dont fit all that well! But you have motivated me to give it a go!

So I shall buy some muslin fabric and pull out one of the many patterns I have and see wht I can come up with! This is so generous for you to share all this information on your blog!! But I just wanted to say that I so appreciate not only this post but all of your blog posts. Your knowledge is helpful, and your personality shines through and makes it all fun and accessable.

This is such an awesome post — thank you so much! Just having a few tips of where to start is so fantastic! Thanks so much for this post. I occaisionally sew for my kids, but am really afraid to sew for myself…with the companion problem of being impatient. This is really encouraging. I also like all the resources. I just bought some patterns. I fall between sizes too. For McCalls the two sizes I fall between is where they split the sizes into different packets.

I never know what size to buy. Is it easier to take in the bust or increase the waist? And I totally hear you about the between-size thing. Also, commercial patterns always seem to be larger than I want them to be anyway.

You can also get Swedish Tracing Paper on Amazon. Thanks heaps for taking the time to write that awesome post. Thanks so much for the encouragement! I may wait a little bit since baby 2 is due in one week! I started sewing for myself in junior high, too, but I started making patterns fairly soon after I learned. I still used patterns, for the most part, until about 5 years ago. Now, the majority of the patterns I do are ones I have drafted.

I for one have made clothes that fit, but just look like crap on me! Go to the store and try on different styles until you can really pinpoint what you want to make that will flatter your body. I have a pattern that I drafted for a princess seamed fitted top. I love this style on me, so I have done things like different collars, different sleeves, peplum back…etc.

Like Rae said, muslins are very important. I forgot that last week and had a failure with a nice piece of fabric. It is still wearable, but not the fit I wanted. Nice post, I recently started making muslins and it has made such a difference in my sewing! Thank you for this post!

I really need to try making muslins as I continue practicing my skills. I need to get over my disappointments and get out that cheap, ugly fabric to make some muslins! Thanks for a helpful post. I bought the swedish tracing paper through Amazon and the price was very reasonable. When cutting out your muslin, I learned that you should mark your seams by tracing and then do a basting stitch over that line.

In addition be generous with your seam allowances inch or two when you cut out the muslin. This helps with if you need to make your outfit bigger when you fit the muslin to your body. Sew using a basting stitch along your lines and try it on.

Make any adjustments and then you can take the muslin apart and use it as your pattern. I learned this on a class I took through Craftsy. Thank you so much! This will be my next sewing journey. What a really thoughtful post. I had a very similar experience learning to sew as a teenager. I clearly remember fitting the size charts on the pattern envelopes exactly. If they are designed to fit a skinny teenage girl.

They will clearly not fit a grown up woman, especially one whose belly, hips back and bust have carried and nursed three children! Commercial patterns are based on a Bcup, so if you wear more than a C and you pick a size based on the full bust measurement, you will get a big baggy sack. If you use your high bust measurement, you will more likely get a size that fits your shoulders and overall frame. Then you adjust the bust to fit, which is much easier than shoulders.

Wow, Rae, thanks for such a helpful and informative post! This is really timely, because I am immersed in sewing for myself. Being a full bust gal, I have found certain cuts to be much more flattering than others. Sometimes I want to wear certain styles just because they are trendy, but then I look too big in them. I am learning to adjust patterns so that they accentuate the waist, and have found that certain prints help disguise some of my fullness up top.

Another great alternative to Swedish tracing paper is lightweight non-woven non-fusible interfacing. I usually by a big lot at a time 10m or so and get it supplied on the roll. I definitely learned to sew the same way you did, Rae. It would have saved my last top from ruin, which ends up being more of a waste money-wise than the muslin would have been. Thanks for all the excellent pointers!
