    What would be the recommended needle size for sewing the Building Block Dress?

    Thank you

    That will depend on what the fabric you are sewing.

    For lawn and voile, I use a size 10, a size 12 for most other fabrics and a 14 for denim.

    If you google it, you should find a good chart that will recommend type and needle size.

    Good luck.

    Thank you Nicole; I guess it was a very open ended question 🙂

    @softwareandstitches I found this one https://www.craftsy.com/sewing/patterns/a-guide-to-schmetz-sewing-needles/236850 I couldn’t search for you yesterday as I was on my phone.

    My favourite is size 10, It seems to sew best on my machine, a Bernina semi-industrial. I am pretty fussy about changing them after hitting a pin or 12 hours sewing time. I save the blunter needles and use them for mending work clothes.

    As for being open ended, it is a great question and opinions vary.
    I am always happy to chat all thing sewing.
