The Haberdashery / Do I need a french curve or a Dressmakers ruler
« on: July 03, 2020, 12:39:53 PM »
I'm still a novice, but I want to break away from shop bought patterns and either amend those patterns or start from scratch (initially copying shop bought items of clothes I love).

It looks like I'll need some sort of ruler with curves but I'm not sure where to start, a french curve or something like the Prym dressmakers ruler.

I can't work out the main difference/advantages of each. I would really appreciate some pointers.

Hello from Ireland!

Another nameless parenting forum pointed me towards you lovely people.

I'm a newbie to both this forum and sewing. My mum tried to teach me when I was younger but I was not a great student.

I took it up again over the Christmas break and got hooked. I realised that there's tons I don't know hence signing up here.

I'm going to start a course next week because there's a few gaps in my knowledge but I really want to get into pattern adaption and designing my own clothes. Definitely nothing fancy, but I suspect I'll need help with that sort of thing in the future!
