Sewing baby clothes is not as difficult as it seems.at first sight. It is better, of course, to start with simple models - say, a shorts for a child, rather than aiming at sewing. For physical education in the garden is not necessary to purchase a complete set. There is a more creative and, if you wish, a budget solution: to sew shorts with your own hands. And with our master class you can easily handle such work.
So, to sew shorts with their own hands, you need:
• fabric, it is better to take knitwear - it stretches welland sits on the figure; • thread color suitable for the fabric; • elastic along the waistline plus a small allowance; • pins; • tailor's chalk or remnant; • scissors; • sewing machine.
How to sew shorts do it yourself: job description
From knitwear we cut out just such a figure (do not forget about allowances, leave more and more at the top and bottom - on the fold and belt): You can take a sample of old pants orshorts and remove the pattern from them. In this case, the height of future shorts, you can vary on their own - from the belt to the bottom of the shorts. All we need are two identical parts. We process the edges of parts. I do not have an overlock, so I brush over the edges on a regular typewriter with a zigzag stitch. It turns out very well - such a seam copes with the function of protecting the fabric from rash or arrows - if it comes to knitwear. Fold our parts face up to each other. We grind them along the line from the waist to the most prominent point, along the so-called seams of the seat. Now we expand the stitched details like this: And sew step seams - form the shorts. It remains only to process the top and bottom of the product. Fold the fabric inside and lay the bending seam on a typewriter. I worked on the bottom of the shorts with a decorative zigzag stitch, and at the top I laid a regular machine stitch. Do not forget to leave a small hole in the hem of the shorts along the waist line - we will later insert a rubber band through it. By the end of the gum we fasten a pin. It is better to immediately cut off the desired length - this is the waist length tight, but not tight, plus 1 cm for stitching the edges. And stretch it through the entire hem along the perimeter of the waist. We take out the tip of the gum through the hole, straighten it. Cut off the excess. The ends of the gum sew overlap or knotted, but the second method may not be very comfortable to wear. The knot or stitching place hides inside the belt, into the hole through which the elastic band is pulled, we sew manually. That's all, the shorts for the child are ready - as you can see, it is more than simple to sew them with your own hands. Elena Modenova specifically for the site Previous article: Next article:
