2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Pattern simplicity 1426 - Top A - Newbie needs so much help. on: June 13, 2014 08:49:14 PM
I am so very new to sewing. I can make a circle skirt and thread my sewing machine, but reading a pattern throws me.

I bought Simplicity 1426 to make top A a cute little vintage halter top.

I found on you tube how to lay out my pattern a even cut it.

Now I'm at the part to read it.... Shocked

Step 1: Stay stitch front (1) neck edge and upper edge of back (2) 1/2" from cut edge in direction of arrows.

I figured out stay stitch is just a basic straight stitch, but I'm stubbed as to the numbers." I know I need to stay stitch piece 1 and 2 but this pattern has lining which is also 1 and 2.
Do I stay stitch all 8 pieces.

Step 2: To make dart....and it goes on and on about how to make the dart.
Again this is front pieces which also has lining that matches. DO I dart all 4 pieces

in the pattern it doesn't start talking about the lining until step 4 which states to sew seams.

I think I have a long way to go.

Any help will be much appreciated. Hopefully there is someone in this with me for the long haul. I think I will have a billion questions to come about this one pattern.

Thank you all.

I wish I thought of this when I was a freshman, I don't think I have any photos left from freshman year and if I had done this that would be a different story.

Great work you must keep this up you will treasure this for years to come.

I've made another. I told you all I would stay up late to finish it. I was up till 1:00am yesterday working on this one and the arms and legs kept giving me a lot of trouble, plus I turned the legs before I made the toes and had to just make square feet.

I'm not sure how I made the last one because this one seemed a lot harder than I remembered. I think next time I will enlarge the pattern to make it easier to turn. Plus I had only light purple thread at home and dark purple felt so you can see all the stitches, but I think I will use that to my advantage later. I'm not sure what I'll do yet, but I feel she needs more.

The hair I wasn't sure on how to attach, my first one was a yarn wig, but this one I decided to sew on the hair and I did it piece by piece. I totally love the hair.

Let me know what you think.

C/c always welcome. Thanks for looking.
