I have created a glossary on blackboard to assist you with some terminology please check it out. Also bring in a highlighter as well as the rest of your drafting kit.
We will also be learning how to top stitch on denim using top-stitching thread. The waistband on the present pants will be finished as well as the hems. The waistband is to be cut and interfaced using the total waist measurement derived from the pants plus seam allowance by 10 cm. Pin and stitch it onto the pants, the unstitched edge may be serged or zig-zagged. We will do the rest in class. Students who are usure of how to stitch waistband on to pants bring the waistband that has been interfaced to class for 6:30 and we will cover that material at that time.
Please bring in the following:
- top-stitching thread in contrasting colour
- size 16 needle
- pants with waistband machine stitched to waistline
- 6 denim rectangles 30 cm X 20 cm
- if time permits we can try a buttonhole, so please bring a button as well
