Threads Industry Insider Techniques, Vol.1 (Video Download)
This instructional sewing video was developed to answer requests from Threads readers for a behind-the-scenes look at how professionals construct fine clothing worthy of designer labels.
Threads editors along with nationally recognized sewing maven Louise Cutting demonstrate the timeless techniques and attention to detail that define well-sewn clothing.
This informative video reveals clever designer tips and little-known industry techniques.
Now you can see how pros overcome the common problems the home sewer encounters, including how to sew:
A no-stitch, interfaced hem that's fast, neat, and ideal for pants, skirts, and tailored jackets
Balanced darts that correct two problems: dimples at the tip of a dart and unbalanced vertical 'fisheye' darts
The perfect collar that eliminates bulky seams at the center-front edges and improves roll and shaping at the neck
Mitered corners with no unsightly puckers and edges that are clean and in position
Designer facings that remove bulk and improve the way a garment drapes, creating a smooth, clean line
And there's so much more. You'll improve all your skills as you learn the ins-and-outs of French bias binding, clipping curves to produce graded seam allowances, and a mitering method that's key to sewing neat, flat, sharp corners.
This video is your guide to mastering those all-important tailoring touches that will enhance every garment you sew.
Louise Cutting is an accomplished designer, sewing instructor, and creator of Cutting Line Designs Pattern Company.
