By beginner books distributed by pattern companies, I meant books like this: https://www.etsy.com/listing/31223301/vintage-mccalls-sewing-book-illustrated

I own that one, and would recommend it. But there are hundreds of variants out there by all the major brands from the 1920’s – 1980’s which are all pretty similar.

Youtube likes to mark my videos as ‘not suitable for all advertisers’ because its algorithm is broken. Ad revenue doesn’t cover material costs for most projects featured in videos; much less a wage for the time spent filming and editing.

My name is Angela Clayton, I’m a twenty year old designer and seamstress who is currently living on Long Island, in NY.

I’ve been sewing for five years and focused on period costumes and original designs for the last three. I make costumes for fun and to expand my skill set so I can hopefully get a job in the industry someday.
