At Sew Over It, we run a variety of video and written sewalongs to accompany our sewing patterns, all designed to help you grow your sewing skills!

Sewing instructions can sometimes be a little baffling, especially if you’re not familiar with the construction method or have never tried a particular technique before. When you find yourself a bit stuck, sewalongs are here to help. They guide you through the sewing process with extra hints, tips, and photos and videos of what each step should look like.

Sew along with Lisa live on YouTube each month (and then catch up later with the recorded video!), or go at your own pace with our collection of written and photographed sewalongs on our blog.

Video Sewalongs on YouTube

We began running video sewalongs on YouTube to help our community get through the coronavirus lockdown. We knew there were lots of people at home needing a fun distraction, so we decided to sew together. As well as being your chatty sewing buddy, Lisa also helps you through tricky construction steps, and so we hope you find these video sewalongs useful too!

There are over 75 video sewalongs available on our YouTube channel, so if you’re stuck on one of our patterns, have a look to see if we’ve covered it. You might just get the helping hand you need.

Written Sewalongs on our Blog

On our blog we also have a series of in-depth sewalongs for certain patterns.

Written by the Sew Over It team, these sewalongs are fully-photographed and make a great reference point for how the project should look as it comes together.

Some of our written sewalongs also include fitting and hacking tutorials, such as how to do a full bust adjustment on a princess-seamed bodice or how to hack the Penny Dress into a tie-front shirt – plus loads more!
