Blogs and online resources can be a huge help when you’re taking sewing lessons, but which blogs are the best? Here, Glendale, CA sewing teacher Marie B. shares her picks for the best sewing blogs and online resources…

In the ocean of information that is the Internet, it can be daunting to find the right information when you need it. One can easily get lost in the myriad of blogs and websites. I have put together a list of some of the best sites for sewing tips, sewing tutorials, sewing patterns, and general information.

Sewing blogs can provide great resources and inspiration, and they can also help you discover new independent pattern companies, learn new techniques, and even teach you to be adventurous and try something new.

In this list of sewing blogs, you will find a mix of blogs for beginners, aspiring fashionistas, and the creative, crafty crowd. Explore these sites and bookmark your favorites; have fun!

The beginner seamstress will find a lot of valuable information on Tilly and The Buttons. This elegant site focuses on dressmaking, but also offers helpful tutorials on sewing essentials.

The simple dress designs aren’t intimidating for blooming sewists, and you can also purchase the printed patterns on the site.

Tilly Walnes, founder and author of the best-selling book “Love at First Stitch,” lives in the U.K.., but you can save on shipping and get started right away by downloading the patterns directly from the website.

If you’re taking sewing lessons to unleash your inner fashionista, then these two fashion sewing blogs are for you!

The Colette Blog is packed with creative inspiration, tutorials, and sewing tips. Plus, you can check out the sister site, Colette Patterns, where you can buy fabulous sewing materials and patterns.

The blog is easy to navigate and divided into sections such as tutorials, inspiration, and the wardrobe architect, where you can learn about the basics of fashion design, from shape to silhouette. This site will help you build a better, more personal wardrobe that reflects who you are.

“We make sewing patterns that teach,” says founder and creative director Sarai Mitnick. “Our small team is dedicated to reviving the art of sewing through everything we do.”

Fashion Sewing With Angela Wolf

Angela Wolf is a designer, author, and TV personality. She is the couture sewing expert on It’s Sew Easy TV, and an online instructor on Craftsy and Pattern Review.

If you’re interested in fashion sewing, you should definitely check out her website.  The site includes video tutorials and sewing tips, and there is a blog with lots of articles on all things sewing.

“I started sewing when I was six years old, taught from my mother,” Wolf says. “I continued to sew all through college and started a custom apparel / alterations business that I ran for over 20 years.  Now, I simply want to share what I have learned and hopefully inspire others to sew, especially garments. A few years ago I started Angela Wolf Pattern Collection to provide sewing patterns based on my designs with a fit similar to ready-to-wear sizing. My blog quickly followed in order to provide sewing, fitting, and embellishing tutorials, tips, and solutions. Best known for teaching how to sew designer jeans, I try to make it SEW EASY for any level sewer.”
