How to sew clothes for a newborn with their own hands? You will find the answers in our article with detailed instructions and photos
We sew clothes for the kid by own hands ModernThe textile industry offers a huge range of clothes for newborns in a wide price range. Naturally, the quality of such clothes is also not the same. If you do not always have enough money for quality and expensive things for your baby, then try sewing them yourself. This not only diversifies the wardrobe of the child. Such hand-made things will always be stylish and fashionable. At first, textile things occupy a leading place in the wardrobe of babies, it includes overalls, and diapers, sleeping bags, and ryazhonki, and much more. Despite the fact that the clothes for the newborns sewn with their own hands will already look very unusual, it can also be diversified with bright embroidery, or, as an option, with a delicate lace. Useful tips for young mothers regarding clothes: - the skin of children should not scratch or annoy anything, so the seams on such things should be made outside; - things should be sufficiently free, so as not to restrict the movement of the newborn, and also contribute to the easy process of changing clothes; - Natural types of fabric, such as flax or cotton, are more preferable, before synthetic analogs, although the latter already produce sufficiently safe for health. Do not forget about the insulated materials - this is, above all, wool, flannel, and also a bike. Note that wool, despite the fact that it is a natural material, can cause skin allergy, so things from it should be sewn with a lining, or wear on other clothes; - among the color shades, preference should be given to pastel tones, which the child perceives more calmly. You can choose a fabric with a print, but remember that things from the wardrobe of babies are erased more often than usual, which means that the fabric should be color-coded. Otherwise, the paint quickly pours out and the thing will lose its attractive appearance; - the functionality of modern sewing machines is quite wide, and includes not only sewing, but also making loops (for buttons), processing the edges of the material, and so on. To learn how to use such a technique is not immediately available to everyone, so take care of its acquisition in advance; - Try to sparingly spend the material, which will help you reduce the cost of tailoring. To do this, it is necessary to cut with a minimum amount of trimming, placing a number of blanks of future garment details on the piece of fabric. Especially it is useful in case of sewing accessories to the existing clothes - headband in the tone of the sliders, or a hat that harmonizes with the dress; - in order to extend the period of wearing, some types of outerwear can be sewn using a kind of cuff. They will need to turn away when the baby starts growing up. A similar system, called "I'm Growth", is provided for in clothing of high-quality world brands, where a similar "cuff" is created, fixed by a line, which, if necessary, is dissolved. We make a pattern for the baby's undershirt. If you decide not to buy a sweatshirt, but to sewher own, then stock up a piece of flannel or chintz. The material must have a health report or a quality certificate. As the size of the pattern, we received the following brands: a breast half-chest - 24 centimeters; length - 30 centimeters; the neck is half-seated - 12 centimeters. Create a pattern for the underwear. 1. Draw the shape in the form of a rectangle ABCD. The horizons AB and CD are the width of the raspashka, which is 14 centimeters. The verticals AD and BC make up the length of the raspashki, equal to 30 centimeters. 2. Mark the neck of the backrest. Starting with B, mark left on the line AB 4 centimeters. Next, starting again with B, mark the BC line down one centimeter for any size. The points are connected by an arc line. 3. Mark the front neck. Starting from the same point B, mark the BC line down 5 centimeters. Explanation regarding the above-obtained sizes: - 14 centimeters is half of the half-breast + 2 centimeters regardless of the size; - 4 centimeters is one third of the neck; - 5 centimeters - this is the third part from the hem of the neck + 1 centimeter for any size. 4. Mark the length of the sleeve. Starting with A, we lead the AB line to the left about 10-15 centimeters, where we mark the point P. 5. Mark the width of the sleeve. Beginning with P, we draw a line (parallel to the segment AD) by 11 centimeters and mark point 11. Next from this point to the right, we draw a horizontal line before joining with the segment AD and mark the place of connection as P1. 6. We mark the bottom of the sleeves. Starting at 11, along the line that connects P and 11, mark up one centimeter. This will be point 1. After that, starting with P1, along the line that connects P1 and 11, to the left mark 2 centimeters. This will be point 2. From the same point (P1) along the segment AD, we mark 3 centimeters. This will be point 3. Through all three marked points we draw a line. It will be the bottom of the sleeve. 7. Mark the side seams. Starting with D, cut the CD line to the left by 2 centimeters and join it with points 2 and 3. 8. Mark the bottom of the turtleneck. Cut the CD segment in the middle. After that, from Point 2 (along the contour of the future lateral seam) mark up 1 centimeter. Point 1 is connected to the middle of the segment CD. We pass on to sewing the tights. The resulting outline drawing forms the fourthpart of the entire baby's raspashonki, in connection with which it will be necessary before cutting to put under it another piece of paper. Thus, the top sheet will represent the front of the pattern, and the bottom - the back. We recommend sewing a sweatshirt out of a fabric of soft kinds, for example, flannel, medapolam, cambric, chintz or paper. Pay attention to the quality of the material: the composition of the yarns of fabrics and paints should not pose a danger to the health of the baby. During the cutting, the fabric needs to be folded in half along the share thread. After that, to the fold line, attach the back of our pattern in front of you, docking them along the shoulder level. Note that the seams on the shoulder do not. Since the seam distance is taken into account in the drawingpatterns, during the cutting of elements do not need to leave space on the allowances. With the help of the machine (or hands), the sides of the sides are sewn together with the linen seam "into the lock". In this case, it is worth remembering that a softer handmade suture is considered. If there is an overlock, the joints should be processed by them. For infants up to six months, the processing of seamsmust be done in order to avoid skin irritation. Remember: here for the baby is important convenience and comfort, and not the appearance. Holes for the fasteners raspashonok performed from the rear, if it's a baby to six months, and in front, if it is older. In this case, the back is better to cut without cuts. The lower part of the sleeves and the neck of the ruff are made with an oblique or undercut obtacle, or alternatively, crocheted.
