Basic stitches

  1. 1. BASIC STITCHES GRADE 8 K TO 12 DRESSMAKING/TAILORING
  2. 2. BASIC HAND STITCHES •Sewing the basic hand stitches are very easy if you learn each step thoroughly before you start practicing the next step. Sewing by hand is a skill that most, if not all, people should probably attempt to master at some point.
  3. 3. BACK STITCH- Make one running stitch, then take a back stitch to the beginning of the first stitch, thus overlapping each running stitch. Resembles machine stitching and is used to strengthen a seam made by hand.
  4. 4. Basting- Basting is quite important in successful sewing. This is used to hold fabric temporarily in place, until permanently stitched. There are four types of basting; hand basting, machine basting, pin basting and basting edges with an iron.
  5. 5. Running Stitch- To make this stitch, push point of needle in and out of fabric until you have several stitches on the needle. Hold fabric taut with left hand, pull the needle through. Practice until you make fine even stitches.
  6. 6. Outline Stitch- This stitch is similar to the back stitch but it is slanted. Make one slanted backstitch in front of another letting each one overlap the one before it just a little bit, until the design is filled.
  7. 7. Blanket Stitch- Put your needle in 1/4 inch from the edge of the fabric, put the thread under the point of the needle and pull through.
  8. 8. Catch Stitch- This is used for a flat finish next to fabric, such as seam binding on a hem. Hold open hem edge away from you, work from left to right, Take a stitch in the hem, then a tiny stitch to the right just beyond edge of hem with the point of needle to the left. This makes diagonal lined that cross each other.
  9. 9. Chain Stitch- Insert the needle in and out of the fabric (as in the running stitch). Bring the thread under the tip of the needle while still in the fabric, then pull the needle through.
