One of the more challenging and least loved parts of making garments on home sewing machines is measuring, marking, and cutting out the pattern pieces.
It’s time-consuming and requires accuracy to avoid mistakes that could result in fabric waste or even affect the fit and look of your finished garment.
While it’s always a good idea to learn how to measure and mark patterns and position the pattern on the fabric, there’s a new option now available if you just want to skip the preparation and get right down to cutting the pieces out and sewing them with your Janome HD1000.
You can now buy the fabric of your choice pre-printed with the pattern of your choice from some pattern makers.
Sewing Ease With Patterns Digitally Printed On Fabric
The Sprout pattern company has recently partnered with the BurdaStyle fabric company to start offering garment patterns that come pre-printed on the fabric, making sewing their patterns easier and faster.
For those of you who want to skip all the measuring and marking to get right to the cutting so you can sit at your sewing machine right away, these patterns are a dream come true.
Digitally printed with all the pattern pieces in the right size and laid the right way, all you need to do is cut them out and get sewing - wow!
These patterns are priceless for beginner sewists who are just learning to sew clothing on machines like the Janome HD1000 or even for more experienced sewists who just want to get to the stitching and skip all the time-consuming preparation.
Printed on your fabric of choice, you can turn out homemade clothes in almost no time with the precision of a factory-made garment.
How Do You Order A Pre-Printed Pattern?
So, how do you get one of these pre-printed patterns? It’s actually pretty simple.
BurdaStyle’s pre-printed patterns are custom printed onto your choice of fabric according to your specifications.
To create the pattern using an online pattern maker tool at BurdaStyle’s website, you first choose the pattern that you want to make and then fill in various other details.
The application will ask for measurement and size details, then allow you to choose the fabric you want the pattern printed on.
Your custom fabric pattern will be printed and delivered to you ready to cut out and sew together.
No measuring yardage, no checking for grain, no pinning and marking pattern pieces, and no risk of mistakes that could result in a ruined garment.
Now Garment Sewing Can Really Be Fun and Easy!
Sometimes, all the prep work involved with sewing a project with your sewing machine can destroy your motivation to actually do it.
When you want to make something with your Janome HD1000 and would love to skip the fuss involved in setting up and marking a bunch of pattern pieces, you can get straight to the cutting and sewing with a pattern that’s already printed on your fabric of choice.
Just cut out the pattern pieces and start sewing; it's as simple as that!
