or basic sewing skills?
would we like one if not?
I'm just on the brink of making a few things and could do a series of following a paper patter, altering a pattern, making a pattern/toile.
how to do basic stitches ie, back stitch, whip stitch, french seam, button holes?
And maybe an embroidery one?
