4 Tailoring Essentials That Will Save You!

After you get your sewing machine you're gonna be SUPER PUMPED to tailor everything in your closet BUT there are a few things you're gonna need to purchase first.

The first one are measuring pins. You want to use those when you measure your garment. You can use tailors chalk, and in fact I used to use my daughter's sidewalk chalk, don't judge me! It seemed like a good idea at the time...You can also use safety pins but make sure you replace them with regular pins before you sew anything.

You also want to use a cloth measuring tape, and NOT one for construction projects. It doesn't make any sense at all to measure something that's flexible with something that isn't flexible at all.

You're gonna want some pinking shears too. Those are going to cut a zigzag pattern in your seam and prevent it from fraying. You can use the zigzag stitch if you like but some people complain that it's a bit itchy. These are a great alternative to that.

The last one is a seam ripper. You DIDN'T ruin your clothes, but you do need to use this to take out that stitch and start over. It's super easy to use too!
