Sewing In Bulk Quantities - The Sewing Process

Hi Everyone! This week we're going deep into the process of a bulk sewing project. I've chosen the LJ Salina dress to illustrate the process of fabric selection, cutting, sewing, and pressing the items in a streamlined process. It's always interesting that you can sew a pile of the same thing without adding a huge amount of time compared to sewing one item individually. You can likely sew a single dress in a hour or so, but you can sew a dozen at one time in about 2 hours - that's definitely worth trying!

The video is posted below. I hope this will encourage you to give it a try! Be sure to scroll down below to find a list of resources and patterns for your bulk sewing project!



Pattern Overview:

  • Liberty Jane Salina Dress (Shown in the video - AG, WW, AGAT, KNC)
  • Liberty Jane Aspen Dress (Shown in the video - AG, BFC)
  • Liberty Jane FREE T-Shirt (AG, WW, H4H, Barbie, JG, KNC, BFC, AGAT)

Make a set of 12 and then share them with the group and be sure to let us know what they are for (your collection, a gift, a charitable project, etc.) If you have questions or need help in specific areas, ask!

Here’s another quick tip. When turning the bodice, I use a hemostat and it just turns quickly and easily. Love how Cinammon prepared things to put together. I never sew less than at least 2 of everything, so I found that very helpful!
