Sewing levels

Opian sewing patterns are modern and simple to make. They are all accompanied by clear instructions as well as detailed illustrations to help you step by step in the assembly of your garment. They will guide you to make clothes with perfect finishes and in the rules of the art. To go further in the adjustment of a pattern, you can also find information on how to modify one to fit your morphology on the Pattern Making page.

However, our patterns do not teach the basics of sewing. If you are a beginner, we advise you to start with easy little things like a cushion or our SURIMANI turban or snood ORTLES patterns.
