sew 4 yourself

sure you can

Learn to sew so that you can make things you want to wear. It is not very difficult, if you don't do all the crazy shit. Just make the garment, and wear it. Forget decorative trim and interesting fasteners, and definitely don't make anything more complicated than it needs to be. Get someone who knows how to use a sewing machine to show you how to sew. Then either start experimenting with your own ideas, buy patterns, or beg us to send you some instructions...


Instructions for making specific garments come in the form of lengthy directions for how to cut out and stitch together pants, a skirt, or whatever. The instructions do not assume you know anything other than how to use your machine to stitch a straight line on fabric. Can you do that? No? Then you better learn. The best thing to do is to find someone female over the age of 45 and ask them to teach you how to use a sewing machine. It isn't very difficult. Children do it, after all, all over the world.

Each set of instructions costs $10. If you got several of them they would make a small book. Hey! That's an idea. Maybe we could put it together and make a book, and just sell you the whole thing at once. We'll get right on that.


Doesn't sound like fun to you? Would rather just buy something? That's fine. Get on back to Ideal Garment and order up something to suit you. Or come on by the shop and try things on, have a glass of wine, and see if we can set you up with some good clothes.
