You need: middle/high stretchable jersey (natural or mixed) with lycra, end-on and broadside stretchable; cotton jersey for gusset, elastic braid of 0.7 cm width for neckline/armholes, elastic braid of 2 cm width for garment hem (band’s length is equal to length of edge «-» 0.7).
IF THE PATTERNS HAVE DOUBLE CONTOUR, THE SEAM ALLOWANCE IS PROVIDED,
IF THE PATTERNS HAVE SINGLE CONTOUR, THE SEAM ALLOWANCE IS NOT PROVIDED.
SEAM ALLOWANCES: 2 cm for the hem, 1 cm for other seams.
ATTENTION! Before sewing, print paper patterns and lay them out according to the linen width (from 90 to 150 cm) to find out how much material you need (do not forget about double and symmetric details).
WHEN SEWING, BE CAREFUL WITH NOTCHES – THEY MUST BE COINCIDING!
1. Back part – 1 piece
2. Front part – 1 piece
OUR ADVICE: stitch jersey details with special elastic/zig zag stitches. If you use an overlock, cut seam allowances till 0.6-0.8 cm width. Topstitch hem allowances with double needle to save elasticity.
1. Stitch side/shoulder edges. Neaten seams and press them.
2. Stitch elastic braid to neckline/armholes. Fold edges under and topstitch with zig zags.
3. Stitch the braid to garment hem. Fold it into wrong side and topstitch with narrow zig zags.
