In Stardew Valley, you will have the option to choose your clothing before beginning a new farm.
This is a difficult choice because you won’t be able to create and wear new ensembles for a period after you wear these clothes.
The 1.5 version, which was launched in December 2020, allowed us to create a huge variety of clothes for every occasion.
We’ll go over all you need to know about making garments in this guide.
The sewing machine is located in Emily and Haley’s home, and it may be used to create these garments.
You won’t be able to use the sewing machine straight now, regrettably. Let’s go over how to unlock the sewing machine first.
Hacking Emily and Haley’s Home’s Sewing Machine
You must have at least one piece of clothing in your inventory in order to unlock the sewing machine.
Wool can be woven into cloth using a loom. You will need a sheep or a rabbit to get wool.
These animals will occasionally produce wool that can be used in looms.
Before you can create wool, you must upgrade the highest barn and coop upgrades because both of these animals require them.
The loom recipe, which you can learn once you have reached farming level 7, requires 60 wood, 30 fibre, and 1 pine tar.
Simply set a tapper on a pine tree to collect the pine tar, and you can produce this very easily.
Through routine farm work, your farming skill will advance. Your level will increase as long as you tend to your livestock and crops every day.
Once you’ve obtained your cloth, wait until the following morning and leave your farm between 6 and 11 am.
Emily will come up to you and start talking about her sewing machine if it is not raining. After the cutscene is through, you can immediately begin using the sewing machine.
Where to Purchase a Sewing Machine
You can get your own sewing machine by filling out a specific order for Emily.
Emily will offer you a sewing machine to use on your farm after you complete the Rock Rejuvenation order.
You’ll need the following supplies to finish this quest. The mines located north of Pelican Town contain all of these jewels.
There are nodes for each of the 120 storeys’ 120 materials.
- 1 Emerald 1 Topaz 1 Ruby
- 1 Jade and 1 Amethyst.
- You can keep your personal sewing machine wherever you want in your home and use it whenever you want.
If you love to sew garments but don’t want to go to Emily and Haley’s house, it’s a terrific addition to your farm.
Utilizing a Sewing Machine
The smaller front room of Emily and Haley’s home is where the sewing machine is. No one has to be home for you to use it anytime you want.
You can create as many outfits as you like so long as you visit the house during the hours of 9 am and 8 pm when it’s unlocked.
Place a piece of cloth on the left side of the sewing machine to start sewing. An empty square with the outline of the cloth may be seen above.
You should place the cloth in this location.
Then, position a piece on the right, above the power button. This is the sewing machine’s spool, which is where the thread would typically go.
A clothes shape will appear on the right panel. If you’re creating new apparel, a question mark will appear with the item’s outline.
You will see a photo of the outfit if you are revealing anything that has already been shown.
The machine will start up and give you the clothes when you press the power button.
Build sure to bring extra cloth if you want to make more than one outfit because one piece of cloth will only make one piece of clothes.
Various types of clothing
In Stardew Valley, there are four main categories of clothing: hats, shirts, pants, and shoes. Only hats, shirts, and pants may be made using the sewing machine.
Since footwear serves as fighting gear, it cannot be crafted.
As an illustration, the sneakers will increase your defence by 1, whereas the Genie shoes will increase both defence and immunity by 1.
Overall, footwear is designed to help you fight. Despite being unable to make or colour shoes, you can transfer stats between other pairs of shoes using a sewing machine.
Later, we shall discuss this.
Manufacturing shirts, pants, and hats
In Stardew Valley, there are numerous clothing options, and most of the clothing you create will be shirts.
There are many different kinds of distinctive shirts in the game, although many items will produce shirts with the generic name “shirt” and the colour of the item used.
Although you won’t know the exact design of your garment before you make it, you can make an educated guess based on the materials.
For instance, if you sew banana pudding into a shirt, you will obtain a banana shirt.
There are a lot fewer caps and pants. Both of these outfits can be created using a sewing machine and still just need one fabric and one item.
Normal-length pants, shorts, dress bottoms, skirts, or Genie pants are all acceptable types of bottoms.
Similar to shirts, the style and design will change as more items are added.
The last category is headwear. There are many different hats, some of which are a little sillier than others.
You will frequently receive a regular hat, but for more unusual goods, you will receive a mask.
A blobfish attached to a sewing machine, for instance, will result in a blobfish mask. In general, the exact item will determine the style and type of apparel.
Try experimenting once you have enough fabric to see what new clothes you can create. You can just tuck an article of clothes away in a dresser if you don’t like it.
Visit the Stardew Wiki for a comprehensive list of all the clothing items in the game.
Tips For Dying Clothes
Additionally, certain clothing will be dyeable. They might mention “dyeable” in the description of the clothing.
Add it back to the sewing machine where the fabric would go to dye already manufactured garments.
The next thing you should do is place something else in the space above the power button. You can test out a few different dyes from your inventory by looking at the new colour of the outfit in the right panel.
Almost anything can be positioned in the top-right position.
Some garments can be dyed more than once to achieve a more intense colour. It could take several attempts to get a red object really crimson on a white shirt.
Alternatives to Dye Pot
In addition to the sewing machine, dye pots can also be used to colour clothing. In Emily’s home, these pots are located on the right side of the sewing room.
When you interact with the pots, a menu showcasing your inventory and six different pots will appear.
The pots will be categorised by colour. You must put anything in a pot that matches the corresponding colour. You might put a cherry in the red dye pot as an illustration.
You will receive dye once you have filled all six dye pots, and dye allows you to alter the colour of an object on the colour sider.
You will require the following things in the following colours in order to utilise the dye pots.
Stats Transfer for Footwear
The last two items are boots and shoes. You can exchange stats between the goods at the sewing machine.
Put the shoes with the desired stats in the square in the upper right to accomplish this.
Put the object you want to receive the stats on next in the bottom left square. The object on the left will receive new stats after the machine is powered on.
Only do this if you know for sure that you no longer want the object on the right side because doing so will consume it.
Your new shoes will appear to be specially tailored.
You no longer need to wear brightly coloured shoes that clash with your attire thanks to the ability to transfer stats between your footwear.
While exploring the mines or the volcano dungeons, you can find the majority of the game’s footwear.
While visiting these places, keep an eye out for any chests or dropped items. You might come across the ideal pair of footwear to go with your go-to ensemble.
That is all there is to know about using a sewing machine and creating clothing. Make clothing for every season right away!
