What Is 'Baste'?: BASTE is to stitch two pieces of fabric together just to treat them as one piece, before they are stitched to something else. Use the longest stitch possible on your machine. ie. I’ve Basted the pocket bags (non pinstripe) to the front trouser waist & side seam edges (pinstripe), so they are treated as one piece before the back trouser is stitched on.  Happy Sewing!

What is Seam Binding?: Seam binding is a type of binding that you’ll stitch onto the inside of sewing projects/garments, to cover the seam allowances. This is done in instances of thick or textured fabric, where overlocking or french-seaming is not an option because of the fabric. You can use store bought pre-folded standard poly/cotton bias binding, or, you can cut your own strips of bias binding from the fabric, to use as binding.  Happy Sewing! xx

Tracing Patterns: I know I always say not to buy the cheap webbing interfacing, but, thanks to a sewing superstar’s suggestion earlier in the week, it can actually be used for a much better purpose: Trace your tissue paper commercial pattern size onto the sew-in interfacing to keep your patterns in the correct size, in a sturdy format, without having to deal with that constantly-tearing tissue paper! It’s lighter and easier to handle than poster paper!  Happy Sewing x

Fusible interfacing as patch: If you are using fusible interfacing to patch a hole in fabric, cut the patch shape to a circle, with rounded corners, rather than square, the corners of which will eventually start to peel away with wear & wash.
