Index of online Tutorials
« on: September 11, 2008, 12:19:13 PM »
Hi all,
I've been given the go-ahead from the powers-that-be at SG to make a link list, and Lisa has made this sticky to the top, so if you want to post your favorite tutorials I'll work on putting them all into this post at the top and we'll have a somewhat comprehensive list of on-line tutorials for various sewing techniques.
I'll alphabetize it too, as time permits, by technique.
So, please add your favorite tutorials in subsequent posts, and then please forgive me for not attributing the link to you personally - unless of course, you wrote the tutorial.  ;D
pattern alteration and drafting
Dart Rotation
padstitching and shaping a Lapel Paco Peralta has written a very complete and fabulous tutorial on the technique for padstitching and shaping a Lapel and for The Great Coat Sewalong, and Tany has worked with Paco to do an English translation. Since that is a closed blog (will be open for viewing in about a month or so) he's also published the tutorial on his own blog in Spanish and on Tany's blog in Portugese and in English.
When clicking on Tany's blog you must check the box for the English translation AND uncheck the box for the Portugese, and it'll immediately switch over to English.
If you follow Paco's blog you know how exquisite his work is. I'm in awe of all the time and effort he put into the creation of this tutorial.

Yes, thank you, Marji.  Finding and copying all of the tutorial links I come across was something I was beginning to do at home.  This would make it much easier.

WOW!!!!  :laugh: :purple: :run: :pinkpom: Miriam!!!! Thank you SO much!!! Karma!! I was just watching Roberta Carr's Tailoring video the other day, and salivating over her masterful thread tracing and hand sewing. Earlier today, I was thinking I'd go over the video again, and pratice my hand sewing.

NOW, however, I have a tutorial WITH explanations!!! Spoken, not written!!! So fab! I could kiss you!!! Well, um, sorry to get so carried away  ;D. Ahem.

I can't tell you what an extreme pleasure it is to be able to read the wonderful (and HELPFUL) posts that everyone so generously contributes here. Wonderful!!! Just wonderful!!!

I'm off to watch more YouTube!!!  :D

Wonderful tutorials!!  BTW, I have all of Roberta Carrs and they are really great as well.  I learn so much by being able to watch teaching.  I absconded with my hd's old pants to tear the welt back pocket apart so I could see how to recreate it.

I"m just posting so that those of us who only read posts based upon "unread posts" will see this.
Please see the first post in this thread.
Lisa has made the tutorial link thread "sticky" at the top, and I've been given the go-ahead to add on-line tutorials to this thread as an index.
So bring on your favorite tutorials, and I'll copy them into the first at the top, so that we have a nicely organized (I hope) index.

REALLY cool sewing instruction sites
« Reply #14 on: August 15, 2009, 02:15:40 PM »
I've been surfing this morning. Awhile back, I bookmarked this site and decided to click on it. Pretty wonderful stuff! He listed this site on his blog: :clickhere: Lots of good stuff here as well.

I know everyone probably is aware of these two tutorials, but I just thought that  I'd include them here as well:

Liana's Shirtmaking Tutorial

Kathryn's Jacket Making Journey

'Cause they're really cool, too.

Almost forgot!!  :-[ :P http://coatsewalong.blogspot.com/

Thanks for the links.  This is the first time I've seen the coats from the Sew along.  I'd read about it but that was it.  Does anyone know what Pattern Ann of Gorgeous Fabrics used?  I could e-mail her but thought one of you might know.  All coats were fabulous!

Will have to check out the other links later or next time I'm home!!

Thanks! There are some great tutorials at www.sewaholic.com. Her "Sewtionary" is very good. She has a sew along for each pattern she sells. Even if you don't get the pattern, the step by step tutorials remain on the blog under the "Sewalong" tag to help tackle details like darts, french seams, inserting a pocket, etc. It's a great site for younger people who sew. I have not tried her patterns as they are in her words described for more "pear shapes" and I am busty, but people seem to really enjoy them. They are basic, but detailed enough to keep  one interested. I may join the Minoru coat sew along as she included a guest post about a FBA on it. Great info.

I had posted awhile back about how to add a contrast band to a shirt, but there was no definative answer.  I came across this tutorial on how to add a yoke to a neckline, and I would think you could use the same technique to add a contrast band.  I originally posted this in Patterns & Instructions- not realizing there was this section in the forum-joycep directed me here....so happy there is  a place for this and will visit often to add to my learning :)

Tailored Sleeve Placket
« Reply #26 on: August 11, 2012, 11:44:41 PM »
I hope this is the right place to post this.....

I am working on my skills and techniques for making shirts and blouses.  I bought the Sandra Betzina Power Sewing Shirts and Blouses and think it is a great video.
The section, on the DVD, on sleeve plackets was a new technique that I've never used before.  In any pattern I've made, the pattern piece for the sleeve placket was a "continuous placket", which was always difficult to maneuver and didn't have a nice clean finish. 
I am currently working on my first blouse that I want to apply this new technique and of course the "continuous placket" was what was used in my pattern.

I've come across this written tutorial, with the "pattern piece" for the technique that Sandra used and was so happy that I would like to share:   ;D

Hi there,

Just found this Thread................Thank you so so much its a fantastic resource.
I Would like to mention that  the blog, Made by Hand - the great sartorial debate, is none other than the wonderful Jeffery Diduch, a truly amazing young Canadian Tailor.

His blog has been quite for a while now as he had an accident with his hand as is recovering from surgery and it will take time. Jeffery is so generous with his help and guidance. A terrific guy. Yes, I am a fan!!

Check out the amazing postings on hand worked buttonholes, they are simply exquisite. Don't you just wish you sit there with him..................what a master!!
There are many pictures from other tailors, so the whole range of buttonholes, worked by other Tailors too. Jeffery goes into the varying styles, with examples of Italian style buttonholes and other tailors have pitched in to show examples too.
