How to edge the slits in skirts and dresses. How to sew skirts and dresses. Part 1 – part 2



Dresses and Skirts


Today we are going to show you a very useful technique – how to edge the slits in the skirts or dresses.
We’ll be making a mock-up.
Before we start edging the details, we need to double the edges with the interfacing material.
The most important thing is that the interfacing material should be cut on the grain.
This is the technique we ususally use when making dresses and skirts with the slits.
I remind you that before pressing the seams open, you need to iron them.
We are going to use this piece of grosgrain ribbon for doubling the seam.
We are going to show you how to do it very thoroughly.
We are going to show you 1 more way for edging the slits in the skirts and dresses.
First we need to do absolutely the same thing – we need to edge the details with the interfacing material.
The interfacing material should be cut on the grain. It shouldn’t stretch.
This time we are going to show you how to make the slit stronger with the detail cut of the main fabric.
This technique is very useful! It can be used when you can’t find a grosgrain ribbon of the needed color.
Watch the way Natalie is working.
I recommend you tacking the seam for ironing. We need to be accurate.
Be very attentive!
The both techniques for edging the slits in the skirts and dresses are very useful.
The 2nd one can also be used in the thin fabrics.
The 2nd technique is much easier than the 1st one.
The both techniques will help you prevent the slits from breaking.
I hope that you find these tutorials useful. Choose the technique which is better for you.
We want your skirts and dresses to be beautiful.
Be different and beautiful.
We are Ira and Natalie.
