Shirtmaking as a hobby - is it viable? - Page 3

post #31 of 32
Not a lot to add to this grate threak. . . practice and patience. . . and enjoy all the frustrations of thread (the stuff that comes on spoils - erm maybe I am understanding interwebs speak at long last) breaking, needle threading, clogged erm what are the bottom thread spoils called... pricked fingers... sewn nails... and tension. . . Oh and iron every seam after stitching. . . and you will need a sleave ham (like a mini pillow) for the curvy bits... Have fun. And enjoy. My Father eventually learnt to make seat covers for 1950's Matchless' whilst wearing Van Heusen shirts so maybe it is a case of picking poison. Quilting anyones?

I'm taking a sewing construction class in college currently (it's required for my major) and I plan on making my own shirts and eventually my own sport coats and suits after I take the advanced sewing class. I was talking to my professor the other day and she teaches how to make sport coats in her advanced sewing class, but she teaches it the industry method which is fused.

She then said she could show me how to make fully canvassed jackets outside of class if I wanted. I am looking forward to the prospect of tailoring my own clothing, it should be a fun hobby.
