Chelsea Needs from showed off her current line of comfy, casual dresses and shared a few sewing tips for beginners.

  1. Be patient: Sewing takes a lot of trial and error. By tweaking a pattern over and over again you end up with a tried and true result.
  2. Use the right supplies. Make sure you are using the appropriate needle, etc. for the type of fabric you are sewing on.
  3. Iron the finished product. This differentiates your product from something that looks "home made". Ironing puts in the lines and finish that you see in stores.
