    • 1. CLOTHING CONSTRUCTION ADVANCED Joy Jordan, Extension 4-H Youth Department Specialist and Tiffany Browning, 4-H Project Coordinator, Department of Family Youth & Community Sciences
    • 2. Picking the Perfect Fabric
      • Fabric should be suitable to your skill level.
      • Beginning sewers should use a small print fabric because there is no matching required.
      • Pay attention to the to what type of fabric the pattern requires. You don’t want to make a sundress out of velvet.
    • 3. Fabric Preparation
      • Pre-wash the fabric!! This prevents the garment from shrinking and not fitting after you have constructed it.
      • Iron the wrinkles out of the fabric to make it easier to sew.
    • 4. Choosing Seams & Finishes
      • Choosing the right seam and finish for the garment is important.
      • Different seams are created for different types of fabrics and garments.
      • Which seam should you use? Look at the next few slides and see!
    • 5. Choosing Seams & Finishes Double-Stitched Seam This seam is used to add durability in stress areas. To stitch this seam, you first make a plain stitch and then add a second row of stitching.
    • 6. Choosing Seams & Finishes French Seams This stitch is used on sheer fabrics. It is a seam within a seam. First stitch the wrong sides together and turn and press. Then place the right sides together and stitch again.
    • 7. Choosing Seams & Finishes Turned Under and Stitched Seam This seam is used on light to medium weight fabrics (especially good for jackets). Turn 1/8 inch machine stitch close to the edge. Work from the top side of the seam.
    • 8. Choosing Seams & Finishes Hong Kong Seam This seam is used to enclose seams, but is less bulky than bias tape. Place right side of binding on right side of seam. Stitch at 1/8 inch from the edge. Turn binding over edge to inside. Stitch-in-the-ditch on the top side.
    • 9. Mix N Match
      • On the next slide, you will see the four types of seams we discussed today.
      ? ? ?
      • Write on your scorecard the name of each of the seams.
      • Then you will see four definitions. For each of the scenarios tell which definition is correct.
    • 10. What Type of Seam is It? 1. 2. 3. 4.
    • 11. Definition #1
      • This seam is used for added durability in stress areas. It consists of a normal seam then another seam 1/8 inch from the first stitching.
    • 12. Definition #2
      • This seam is used on see through fabrics. It is a seam within a seam. It has a seam sewn together with the wrong sides together and then after it is pressed, another seam is sewn with the right sides together.
    • 13. Definition #3
      • This seam is used to enclose other seams without the bulk of double fold bias tape. A very light weight fabric is placed on the right side of the binding to right side of the seam. The stitch is 1/8 inch from the edge, then turned over and stitched again in the ditch.
    • 14. Definition #4
      • This seam is used on light to medium weight fabrics. However, this can not be used if there are extremely curved seams. The edges of a ¾ stitch are turned 1/8 inch, then stitched close to the edge. This is a great finish for unlined jackets.
