Hi Oyew,

Welcome on board. You are fortunate to live in Indonesia as you have some wonderful fabrics, excellent art work and good original designs from your country.

Hi, I'm Nicki, another home sewer (sewist?) doing my best to learn on my own.
My first real sewing project was about 20 years ago, I made my own wedding dress with a little help from my mum and grandma. My favourite part was hand stitching the sequins and seed beads to the guipure lace and sewing the motifs from the lace onto the bodice. I think it turned out really well in fact. I made some other garments and then stopped sewing for quite a while. Now I'm back at it and really loving it.
I'm trying to learn everything I can through books and the internet and online courses. There aren't many classes available in my city to learn anything beyond basic sewing. I completed a beautiful wool coat that would be great but the arms ended up too short. Out they've come and I'm making new arms to put in. I think it'll be great when it's finished. But while making it I went searching for methods to hand sew buttonholes and saw good info on this site. I'd like to learn more about tailoring and decided to sign up to the forum. I'm excited to "meet" you all!

Thank you! I will probably just lurk and read and absorb (and practice) for a while but thank you for making me feel welcome to ask!

Hello everyone
I am a b.t. for the last 15 years and a designer for the last 30 years. I prefer to teach and help young people in this metier.
I have been sewing since I was four years old. So that was 56 years at the sewing machine. Got my first one from my grandmother with my birthday.
If you want to know anything, feel free to ask or to mail me.

Kind regards
François

Hey there!

Nice to meet you all.

My background: apprenticeship as a tailor, working many years for theatre and film. Nowadays I work as a cutter for Opera, leading a workroom, having apprentices on my own and still learning every day something new!

Hello everyone! I am a young professional tailor/draper freelancing in new york, working in film, television, theatre and dance. I got a good education grounding from some really solid tailoring courses in graduate school, and have been honing/building on those skills since. I also tailor my own clothing when I am able , which is where I get to experiment with different drafts and construction techniques.

I specialize in, and have a particular fondness/affinity for bespoke menswear. I came to this forum through searching for more tailor's books -- I have some of the basics Cabrera, Doyle, Mitchell System, Poulin, Waugh.. but know that there is so much more out there to learn and see.. Since tailoring approaches can be so subjective!

I look forward to sharing with everyone!
