Which pins are the ‘right’ ones?

Needle and black thread at The Sewing Room MalvernThere are all sorts of different pins out there, all made for a different craft but for dressmaking I love to use fine long pins, good quality ones should slide in and out of the fabric smoothly without snagging or leaving a noticeable hole.  My favourites are the classic dressmakers pins made of mild tempered steel 33mm long and .61mm wide, however, glass-headed pins are handy for marking where your notches are on your pattern whilst cutting out, to avoid missing them.  Don’t tolerate blunt or thick pins they will wreck your fabric.
