HOW IT WORKS

You can create beautiful garments and accessories for yourself.

Here, we share a unique perspective on personal style. Whether you are a romantic in French Country linens, or a youthful new bohemian, a city girl requiring edgy style, a professional in need of crisp sophistication or a woman loving life in comfortable style --- creating your own garments fills your wardrobe with a personal collection.

 

Design your own collection. Inspiration can come from your favorite and out-of-reach designers, personalities who steep in their own style. Create your wardrobe one piece at a time.

 

At SEWTG you can find many sewing patterns and projects that can be adapted into your own closet. Selecting fabric that speaks to you, cutting each piece out, and sitting to stitch with step by step instruction is just the start to a whole new you!

This is not a place to find Fashion or today's Trend.

It is rather, a dedicated approach to determine what your needs are.

This is not a place to find basic sewing patterns. 

As a couture designer, Tina Givens shares her perspective with us in even the simplest of garments.  A TG pattern of a basic skirt, as an example, will offer a distinctive tweak making it a unique garment. Couture designed pieces and the production process is quite different to that of the home sewing market. The designs offered in TG patterns are similar and also quite different to the ready-to-wear and couture market pieces. The reason is to make the pattern pieces and instruction as simple and as clear as possible. 

Sewing Patterns include pattern pieces and instructions with technical diagrams to take you through each step of the sewing process. Sewing techniques are simple yet clever, and create extraordinary results. Garments are easy to make, and carry a certain aesthetic that can be personally translated for your wardrobe. 

These patterns are informal, and as an independent sewing pattern publisher we prefer to keep things simple. Some pieces are surprisingly simple in their pattern pieces, but a little more detailed in the instructions. So be sure to read instructions for layouts, cutting and note any additional pieces you are required to cut out. We carefully layout patterns in both print and download formats to use as little paper as possible, and so when we are asking you to cut out a perfect rectangle or square, we list it in the instructions instead of having you print out more paper. Think of it as a cost savings as well as an environmental consideration. (Less ink too!).

 * Platinum Members may download any sewing pattern free of charge. SEWTINAGIVENS.com is the platform whereby you can do so, but have to place each pattern into your shopping cart. This way, you can return to the downloads in your ACCOUNT library and reload them as many times as you wish. This also keeps track of what you have downloaded so you don't go through the process of ordering the free download again. We know it's a process, but in the long term you will appreciate having this library.
