      . If you are going to sew a single thing and abandon this hobby, then there is no sense in completing a minimal, but if your intentions -this is to create the lion's share of your wardrobe with your own hands, then we recommend starting with this.

      Your minimax is a personal space, a minimum is a corner in the room, a maximum is a separate room, where, above all, there must be a sewing machine that can easily handle both delicate or conventional fabrics( silk, chiffon, cotton) or moredense( jeans, felt, corduroy).

      Also need a convenient table, preferably folding, so as not to take up much space in the assembled state. It should be convenient to work with volumetric patterns. In extreme cases, you can do it on the floor, the main thing is that it is hard.

      Further, indispensable in your endeavors will be a dummy for sewing, or the so-called "silhouette".It is desirable that the basic proportions of the dummy( girth of the waist, chest, chest, thighs, arms, etc.) coincide with your proportions or exceed them by several centimeters. This will make it much easier for you to work with patterns, and you can even try Coco Chanel's famous technique - when the fashion designer simply dumped the fabric on the mannequin and formed the future style without patterns, using as a fixation the sewing studs. By the way, you will also need them, moreover, in unlimited quantities, because they are always missing.

      In addition, a full-length mirror is required that does not distort the display, as well as all kinds of boxes and boxes for decorative material, starting with buttons, ribbons, beads and ending with buckles, strips, rivets and the like.

      But the most important tools in your workshop are threads, needles, pencils, a centimeter, a meter long, crayons, several types of scissors( tailors, ordinary, with rounded ends) and paper for patterning.
