Our Beginner patterns are suitable for anyone who knows how to sew, even if they haven’t done any garment sewing yet. You should know how to operate a sewing machine, be able to sew a straight line, and have some familiarity with basic sewing concepts (but we explain a lot of those in our instructions as well).
