Mother Knows Best:(25:03)

From KrisLuvsWool:

“I learned to sew on a sewing machine when I was younger. We purchased patterns, cut out the fabrics, and sewed it all up… so I have had some rudimentary experience with sewing, but would still consider myself a beginner. That said, as a knitter who has gained an understanding of fit and ease, etc., I’ve got an interest in sewing garments again, but am a little overwhelmed about where to start and how FAR to jump into sewing and drafting patterns. I’m working on padding out my dress form to be more of a real “double”-- but at what stage should I bother trying to make a sloper? A Moulage? Where would you recommend getting started. I checked at our local CC but it’s not offering classes of that nature; and even with Craftsy, I’ve been overwhelmed by the choices that don’t seem curated to guide me into levels of “making”. How does someone “level up” with sewing?”
