    Sewing Tricks

    There are such subtleties and wisdom in sewing to which it is sometimes difficult to reach the most, and here the advice of experienced seamstresses really helps out. Read this and wonder why the very thought did not come

    My headache is a line on knitwear. Bye for now, i'm bored. I want, as it should be - to double a parallel line, but it does not work. But this line does not look any worse, but it lays flat.

    1.

    2.And here is a tricky trick: the line in the center is stitched with an inclined zigzag - and in fact it does not pull, does not wrinkle. And the last line is the result of a straight zigzag line - I always suffer with it.

    3.Sponges on both sides help to sew a long canvas without shifting it and stitching

    4.Ostrochit exactly (which means beautiful) codpiece on the pants / skirt is not always and not all turns out. I sometimes have to double-stitch and uneven places then podparyvat. But after all, as it should: draw-draw a straight, flat line on the tracing paper, pin it to the place that needs to be set off, and flash it along the line outlined on the paper. I stitched it and tore it away. And quickly, the main thing!

    5.Brilliant advice to learn: STITCHING DIRECTION

    Especially true for thin fabrics that love to mow (at me). The diagram shows where to start the line, in which direction to sew. I once had it in my head, moreover, I did that sometimes, having suffered a lot from the beginning.

    In every picture everything is clear. And on the last - a seam with a small zagzag from the front side, so that it's already tight, that it is important for the patchwork

    9.Another ingenious trick. With pants

    Here I have nicely fitting velvet type jeans, but rubbed pretty. Already rarely wear - shore. And I can not rip it, suddenly it will not turn out to be similar to sew, how then to live. And they are only sold in one store in Rome and only in October. Upset here. It’s good that I’m not the only one in this world who is looking for ways to take a pattern off my trousers.

    It turned out that they can be copied without parsing.Assistants need to take masking tape. For we need a tape of low stickiness, so as not to spoil the pants completely. Lay the pants on the table as flat as possible. And we begin to lay the tape on the pants, filling it with all the space of the pants. Noting all the details along the way. Then carefully remove the tape, as one unit, and transfer to paper. We note the allowances for seams. Do the same with the back pant leg. With a belt, a yoke and other details. The back of the pants, as a rule, wider than the front, then add a tape from the seam to the seam. This is how the copy is made.

    A reception that allows not only to bend the hem evenly, but also not to leave a hemming mark on the right side

    17.Dexterously! In order to bend a smoothly flared hem, we lay two parallel lines in a wide step, we first assemble the bottom line (along the edge of which), then the top line, adjust, pin up and stitch!

    18.But the most useful advice in this series. As for me. I do not like a tight belt in knit pants and pajama shorts. I even tried to strip off the belt; it did not work out: everything was very shallow in the hole. And you just had to cut and nadshit.
